What’s Growin’ On?

Here is where you will find about some of the latest goings on around here.

August 2019 was a huge month for us. We picked up Our Farm Our Food from approximately .93 of an acre property and moved to a 115 acre property. We had been looking for a while and our search brought us to 20 acres, 5 acres, 60 acres, 10 acres and so forth. We looked into leasing property as well as buying property. The search had casually gone on for a couple years until we found the one.

From the first time I set foot on the farm, it felt right different than an other I visited. It felt right, I was comfortable and felt at home.

We were under the impression that the house dated to the early 1700’s however one of the previous family members that lived here said the house on the property dates back to the late 1600’s. Sure it needs some work and updating, however we are up for the project.

Ancient History – Stories from the past.

I decided to leave these posts so folks can see where we came from and what we did at our old place.

We’ve picked out the varieties of potatoes we are going to grow and are still working on this years garden layout. We are excited to announce that we are going to begin filming Our Farm Our Food® The Show this year.

2018 is started out Great! We’ve begun Season 1 of the Our Farm Our Food® Podcast. It should air sometime late late 2018 and we’ll let you know where to find us.

We’ve also started recording footage for our first even Our Farm Our Food® show! We won’t give it all away but as a teaser, we went to Grand Maple Farms in New Braintree, MA. So keep checking back and we’ll let you know when the episode will air.

I mentioned in the Podcast how we laid our plastic mulch layer in the fall and can’t wait to see how that will work out for us. I think for us it will be a great way to start our planting season earlier.20170507_144324

We have so many plans for this year. One of which is the collection of our seed we intend to sell. Yes, the varieties that we cherish so much will be available for sale later this year.
