  • CSA Week 2022 Special: First week on us for new members

Farm News

The days are getting longer. Seed orders are filling our mailbox. And we are getting excited to embark on another growing season: in another month, we’ll be back in the greenhouse to start the field onions, sweet peppers, broccoli, and more. And in six weeks, weather permitting, we could be back in the fields to seed the first carrots, peas, and chard!

The winter has been treating us kindly: We’ve only needed to plow snow a couple of times. You can imagine that even with a tractor cleaning out a ¾ mile driveway is quite a chore. Instead, we found some time to recharge ourselves. A bit of cross-country skiing, sledding, riding and driving the horses, reading books (and not per-se books about farming), baking bread, family time.

The next few weeks however are going to be crunch time. For frost seeding cover crops. To finish the winter maintenance on the tractors and other equipment. Basically, to make sure that everything is in tip-top shape – avoiding as much as possible lost time to fixing breakdowns when the going is good!

We’re looking forward to early June when we will start sharing the harvests with you again. Meanwhile, stay healthy and warm,

Your farmers,

Raymond and Sara
