We are so thrilled that spring has arrived - the sunshine feels amazing and it's so exciting to see signs of life in our fields again after a long, dark, winter!
Many of you are probably working on "spring cleaning" projects inside your homes and gardens, and your local farmers are doing the same. We are already hard at work on various projects on the farm and in the office, striving to provide your family with fresh, quality farm-direct products this season. Take a look at the sidebar on the right (scroll down) for the latest news from farms in our area that do have something to offer now - many of our member farms are open throughout the winter!

The orchards, vines and fields are asleep, but work on the farm doesn’t stop for winter! However, the pace of winter work allows us time to review, reflect, and 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.
