Winter Farm Stand Open!

Powisset Farm is officially open for our winter farm stand season!  We have stocked the shelves of the fridge with our beautiful eggs and root vegetables.  And we have pulled the onions, squash, potatoes, garlic, sweet potatoes, shallots, and hot peppers out of storage for you to enjoy!  Our stand is full of these storage delights along with local whole wheat flour, Maine-grown heirloom beans to warm the crock pot, and honey and syrup to keep your winter sweet!  Lastly, we have our freezer filled with frozen wild maine blueberries, Powisset pork, and soon enough we'll be filling it with our favorite Eden Pond Farm frozen chickens. 


Come check out our awesome self-serve farm stand!

The Stand will be open Monday-Saturday between 8am-6pm.

Come in through the main barn entrance (where you usually enter for your CSA share and farm stand visits).  Walk through the double door into the kitchen space where you will find the farm goodies!

Please bring cash or check, we cannot accept credit cards at the self serve market.

See you soon! And please email with any questions!  mlatronica@ttor.org

Happy January,

Meryl & the team at Powisset Farm


Powisset Cooks! Classes!  All Winter Long!
 
Join us next Wednesday evening, January 21, for a very special Powisset Cooks workshop!  From the Fields: Farm Chowder will feature two delicious chowders AND guest speaker, Bobby Jordan, co-owner of our beloved Jordan Brothers Seafood!  


01J BS STILL2014



Every Tuesday during the summer CSA season Jordan Brothers Seafood comes to Powisset to sell amazingly fresh seafood to YOU!

Bobby (far left) and his brother Tommy (second in from the right) began their business in 1989 after working for separate fishing companies. Tommy coaxed Bobby to go into business together and the rest, as they say, is history. Together, along with other family members that help them operate the business they have seen tremendous change in the fishing industry. In the last five years, following the direct marketing trend of farms and small scale food producers, Jordan Brothers Seafood transitioned to selling seafood direct to customers at Farmers’ Markets and on site at local farms. By changing their business model Bobby and Tommy carved out a niche for themselves, strengthened their bottom line, and dramatically increased their level of fulfillment. Bobby shared that the feedback they get from customers is worth all the work involved in selling seafood directly!  

If you love chowder and you want to hear the inside scoop about the local seafood industry, this is the class for you!


I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, January 21, from 5:30-7:30PM. If you have any questions, please email me at rkaplan@ttor.org.

See you in the Farm Kitchen,
Rachel
