We are pleased to announce the opening of our new farm store at 55 Charles Bancroft Highway! This project has been going on for months and we are thrilled to finally be able to open the doors! It is just about 2 miles down the road from the farm, towards Hudson in the DLB Paving and Lix Ice Cream building.

All of our grass-fed beef, pasture raised pork, pasture raised chicken, grass-fed lamb and organic, pasture raised, soy-free eggs will be available for purchase, as well as our organic vegetables in season.  We will also have organic, raw milk, cheese, yogurt, butter and cream from our friends at Benedikt Dairy in Goffstown for sale. Each week, we hope to add more variety from other local farms to supplement our products. This first weekend, we will have organic strawberries from Harlow Farm in Vermont available while they last!

2016 CSA Member Day

Saturday was a perfect day for our annual CSA member day! We took a tour of the greenhouses and gardens, and even sampled some tasty, early greens. We also spent some time learning about the animals and Steve explained the importance of everything working together to create great soil and thus healthy food.

It was great to see some familiar faces and meet some new members! We are thankful for all of our CSA members and are looking forward to a great season! There are still shares available, send us an email to sign up today!

Let the Planting Begin

IMG_9426 (2) (640x463)

We get asked a lot if we are enjoying the down time over the winter. Truth is, we are just as busy this time of year as in the summer!  Steve has been spending countless hours at his laptop, working on spreadsheets, budgeting and planning for the year. Luckily, it hasn’t been too cold and the crew has been able to get a lot of repairs and maintenance done on the equipment. Of course, there are still the animals to take care of and the eggs keep rolling in every day. However, for me, the most exciting of the off-season tasks, is the planting of the first seeds.  I found Bob in the greenhouse yesterday starting the onions and leeks. With some good weather and some even better soil, these tasty veggies will make their way into our CSA shares later this summer! I can’t wait!
