Join us for a hands-on cooking class as we celebrate the bounty of corn and tomatoes with chef, food writer, and culinary instructor, Annie B. Copps, who’ll put her three decades of culinary prowess (including time in the kitchens of Julia Child, Jacques Pepin, Barbara Lynch, Todd English, and Jasper White) to good use and guide us through a lesson on: corn cakes with tomatoes and goat cheese, corn raita, and updated caprese salad and corn and tomato salsa. Tasting and recipes included. To register, please contact Nicole at or click on the link above for more information.

Calling All Artists! Farm & Fable Logo Contest 
This fall, Powisset Farm's book worms will be kicking off our very own book club! And with our debut, we are looking for a new logo to represent this club. For all of you artists, graphic designers...or anyone, we are hosting a Farm & Fable logo contest. Submissions should be sent to & by August 30th.

In the Farm Stand

I'm excited to announce that we have added two new vendors to the Farm Stand!
Chestnut FarmsThe first is Chestnut Farms - a family run livestock farm in Hardwick, MA. Chestnut Farms is passionate about quality meat. Their animals enjoy fresh air, green grass, and sunshine on a daily basis - creating a low stress environment. Their farming practices are animal centered with a focus on land stewardship. They achieve this by rotating grazing, moving chicken houses (which are old school buses!), not using the same pig pasture two years in a row and soil testing prior to amending their fields. We will be carrying various types of meat from Chestnut Farm. This week: bacon, hot dogs, ground turkey and deli meat! Deliveries will be on Thursdays so come in then and check out the selection. #chestnutfarm

Our second addition is Twist Bakery from Millis, MA. Twist is a gluten free, nut free (except coconut) and peanut free bakery.....and everything is DELICIOUS! We are carrying their signature brownie bits, coconut bars and chocolate chip cookies. Whether your GF/nut free or not, you will LOVE these treats!

Enjoy your week and we hope to see you in the barn!
