From the Farmer
I’m happy to report the first week of distribution went really well. It was great to get a chance to see all our veteran shareholder and meet many new ones. I met four different families that became members this years because they had the opportunity to pick-up a share for a friends last year. They enjoyed it so much they became members themselves. If you are ever away for a distribution, feel free to have a friend come pick up your share so they can try it out too.
If you have an EOW (Every Other Week) share and your last name begins from M-Z , this is your pick-up week. If you need to change your day please indicate it on the sign-up sheet. Next week, I’ll make all the changes to the sign-up sheet. If your name is not on the sheet (I have no idea how that happens) please put it at the bottom of the sheet and we’ll get you added.
Monday, as I mentioned in the last newsletter, is the 6th Annual Last Day of School Concert. It will be starting around 5:00p.m.. If you can’t get to the farm by then, please feel free to pick-up on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday. And of course we hope you can make it to the concert. It’s always fun and the food is great!
Strawberry picking has been great and hope you get a chance to pick a few. Check out our Facebook page for picking conditions and while your there feel free to write us a review.
Have a wonderful week,
We regularly update our picking conditions on our Facebook page, so keep checking there for daily news. Today, our picking begins at 9:00 AM. Come and enjoy this perfect picking day. Our organically grown strawberries are plentiful and the farm stand is filled with seasonal fruits and vegetables. Our Farmhouse Kitchen is open for lunch from 11:00-4:00 PM and of course the ice cream shop is always open during picking season.
What’s For Lunch?
Our seasonally-inspired farm lunches are available everyday from 11a.m.-4:00p.m.. We just opened for lunches on Wednesday and it has been a big hit! Here’s the menu and we’ll be adding specials as we go.
In the Farm Stand
Besides our beautiful, organic produce you find plenty of other local products in the farm stand this year. Our deli case is full of goodies coming out of the kitchen. We have local cheeses from Narragansett Creamery and Smith Country Cheese and when we are in our new retail shop we’ll add many more local cheeses. You also find pasture-raised pork, beef and chicken form Lilac Hedge Farm and Chestnut Farm in our freezers. Homemade pies from Ever So Humble Pie Company. Linda and Carolyn are busy in the kitchen everyday making salad dressings, pestos, salads and slaws, hummus, homemade cookies, granola and baking powder biscuits to die for(made with real butter and perfect for strawberry shortcake). And don’t forget our pantry items, pickled beets, old-fashioned peaches and all kinds of pickles.
The greenhouse is full of beautiful plant including organic vegetable seedlings and herbs, gorgeous hanging basket, perennials and flowering annuals for that special container or garden. Need help picking out something that will work for you, just ask one of us and we’ll be glad to help.
