This Week at the Farm: Last weekend of the season
The last weekend of the season is finally here, folks. There’ll be organic produce and delicious food in the farmstand – roasted fall vegetable salad, shepherd’s pie with Shire beef, cornbread stuffed acorn squash, carrot ginger soup, vegetable frittata, peppermint brownies, and other baked goods – and big sales from Friday to Sunday. Read to the end for details!
Though it’s been a great year and we’re sad to be closing the farmstand for the winter, it’s time for us to focus on laying the groundwork for an even better season in 2019. As we get ready to start our big transition, there’s a lot of work to do.
In terms of farming, Nic and Taylor are assessing the farm’s buildings and infrastructure, planning winter projects, and getting ready to start field maps in the New Year. Michelle is working on the cut flower garden seed chart and field map. Next year, the flower garden is moving from its old home across the street to the field behind the farmstand; this will give us a little more space and a better workshop for cut flower production, drying flowers and working with wedding parties.
We hope to see you once more before the end of the weekend, but if not, have a great winter! We are grateful for our whole community and can’t wait to see you again in the spring, when we open for the 2019 season on April 27. Stay tuned for farm updates throughout the winter.
