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.

Don’t forget about your farmers this Holiday Season. Lots of local farms have a great bounty to share for your feasts, including winter squash, local meats, pies, and baked goods! Many farms will also hand craft wreaths, centerpieces and other beautiful decorations for your home, complete with big bows and all the trimmings.

AHH, the beauty of the fall season!
The orange pumpkins are waiting in the fields for you to pick. You’ll find many varieties of winter squash, apples, and freshly-pressed apple cider, plus beautiful decorative corn and gourds. Many of the farms have activities this time of year with hayrides, animals, mazes, and other fun things to do. Dress for the weather and have a fun outing with the whole family.
