I know I’ve been a bit delinquent in my blogging. Too busy! Thanks for your patience.
Here we are at the end of the 2018 season, our 46th as a farm, and the worst year yet for vegetable production in this awful, wet weather.
You’ve probably noticed a few shortages at the market, but on the other hand we’ve had great apples, great pears (bosc will start this weekend) and always plenty of organic kohlrabi, thank goodness! And now our greenhouses are kicking in with beautiful lettuce and other greens, which we’ll have tomorrow.
So we’ll be here with some great holiday pies—mince, (my personal fave) pecan, apple and pumpkin of course, and lots of choices of stocking stuffers, like organic olive oil, jars of delicious things from our friends at Tait Farm, 3lb xsharp cheddar cheeses from our fellow farmers coop in Cabot, VT and more!
Keep in mind that next week, the 29th, we will not be at market. We always have taken off that week, but we will return the following Saturday, January 5.
Hope you like our new winter set up which we experimented with last winter. It still may need some tweaking but we think it’s a great improvement for those cold days we have about three or four times a year. I can’t really say it’s warm in there, with those heaters and the sides on the shelters, but it’s so much better than open air.
At the end of another year I want to let you know how much we appreciate your loyal shopping with us, for many of you 30 or 40 years of that! The weather may be abusing us, but you, our devoted customers, really keep us going and make us feel that the efforts and risks are worth it. You wouldn’t believe how much your moral support means to us, and your dollars kinda help too!
Enjoy your little gift from us of a 5% discount, if you say the magic words: “organic Santa”!
See you tomorrow,
