fields of green

A few shots from this week of the industrious (and c'mon, cute!) folks working in the fields. In order of appearance: Owen Cricket, Yarrow Keenan, and Gail M.

And.....we're excited to officially open the stand this Sunday! You'll find: greens, greens and more greens, maple syrup, preserves (including Lauren's famous dandelion marmalade), and organic, local meat from Bonvue Farm. 

Can't wait to see you all there!

it's starting...

The summer may be off to a slow start, but things are indeed happening around here: the tomato plants in our hoop house are waist-high, the seeds are in the ground, the blueberries  are in full bloom, and (thank goodness) the bees are buzzing. 

We won't officially open the stand until mid-June (we'll keep you posted), but we do have a fresh supply of greens (mesclun, spinach and kale) in the little fridge at the stand. We also have some of Lauren's special dandelion supplies of that, so come get it while it's fresh!

Lastly, NO, it's not too late to sign up for our Farm Stand CSA! What is that, again? 
At the beginning of the season you can buy a $150 membership (minimum).  You will then have an account page at the stand where you keep track of your purchases, and subtract those purchases from your investment. (When your initial investment runs out,  you are, of course, free to add as much or as little to your account as you like.) 

What's the benefit for you? 
We offer a 10% discount on Wednesdays to all farm members, as well as unlimited picking hours (come early, stay late!).

How do you sign up?
You can send a check, made out to Gail MacArthur, to PO Box 30, Marlboro, VT, or find her in person. At that point we will set up your account.

Soon, friends.
~Gail & Co.

PS: Since you're all asking, COFFEE & SCONES will begin Sunday, July 12th at 9am.
PPS: What is that handsome tractor? It's Dan's dad's old Farmall Cub which we've begun using as our cultivator...some things just never get better.
