Last Awesome Winter Market of the Season!! This Saturday!

Powisset 2014 Crew! Thank you to an incredible team!

This afternoon, I made it down the treacherous farm road in the pounding rain and sleet to find shelter in the greenhouse where I was prepping and bagging onions and garlic for this weeks' share.  The rain was so loud as it fell upon on layers of plastic between me and the storm that I couldn't even listen to Amy Poehler's book on tape that I have been caught up in for the last couple of days.  So I put my phone away, took a big sip of my room-temperature coffee and sorted through yellow and red onions to the sound of raindrops. 

Sorting and bagging produce can only mean one thing...we're getting ready for this weekend's final winter share and winter market!  Hooray!  Pleas join us at the farm as we come the "official" (more or less) end of our 2014 CSA season.  The stand will be open and stocked with our produce, the last of our pork, and eggs from our chickens.  We will also have other goodies like; honey, jam, apple sauce, granola, freshly baked baguettes, frozen blueberries from this summer's wild harvest, coffee, beans, local flour and more!  We'll be at the farm between 10am-3pm!  It's even looking like this winter storm will pass by then, so you can enjoy a sunny walk around our fields when you get here.

See you at the farm,

Meryl & the Powisset Farm Crew

This Saturday!

The stand will be open from 10am-3pm this Saturday, December 13th!
You can pick up your winter share at that time, or shop from the stand!

In the share:  carrots, garlic, onions, winter squash, cabbage, celeriac, parsnips, diakon, potatoes, sweet potatoes, radishes, kohlrabi and maybe kale and lettuce mix or other greens!
In the stand: all above, plus shallots, hot peppers, leeks, rutabega, beets, herbs and maybe other greens!
Bulk boxes: half bushel boxes of potatoes and onions for sale for $20 each. 

Last Chance for Pottery This Season 
and An Extra Special Guest!

This Saturday our beloved potters, Lisa Walker and Sue Brum, will return to the barn for the final pottery sale of the year! Take home the gift of hand-crafted pottery for a loved one or for yourself. And if you’re looking for the perfect hat to wear while you sip your holiday nog out of your elegant pottery mug, look no further than the textile artwork of Kathy Zola. Kathy hand-knits and weaves her pieces with a variety of fibers (she even repurposes used plastic shopping bags and turns them into beautiful placemats!) to create hats, scarves and more. Stop by on Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm to chat with the artists and admire their wares.

Egg Shares!

We have a limited number of Egg Shares still available – as of this writing, there are only 15 spots left! If you’d like to continue to enjoy Powisset eggs this winter (Have you ever made a so-called Dutch Baby? Take a gander at this:!), please email Tessa at to sign up.
