The orchards, vines and fields are asleep, but the work doesn’t stop for winter on the farm! However, the pace of work in the winter allows us time to look back and to look forward. We make our rounds feeding the animals, taking seed inventory, keeping the greenhouses free of snow weight, and pruning the orchards and blueberry rows. We service our equipment in preparation for spring work, attend association meetings and educational seminars. As we work, we are thinking back to seasons and lessons learned, and looking forward to the coming spring when the farm will awaken to growth and activity.
As we look forward, we think about the customers who visit and support our family farms, and about how we will work to provide an abundance of good things for your family to eat in season. Please stay in touch with us here and on Facebook. If you haven’t already signed up to receive crop updates from our member farms, take a minute to do it now.

We look forward to seeing you on the farms in 2017!
