Final Winter CSA Pick up, Farm Stand Open on Saturday, Lots of Pork & Powisset Happenings!



Hi folks,

Final Winter Share!

This week in the share you can expect: Cabbage, potatoes, rutabaga, kohlrabi, onions, garlic, shallots, kale, spinach, butter nut squash, daikon, radishes, beets, carrots, leeks, parsnips, popcorn, and arugula!

Pork & Beef!
In addition to the veggies above, we also have tons of pork in a variety of different cuts: bacon, bacon ends, smoked ham,  leaf lard, loin chops, breakfast sausage, ribs and the famous trotters. We also have a few selections of beef to round it out.

Pick up is on Saturday from 10-2pm.

This week is supposed to be another unseasonably warm week. This warm weather has allowed us to get a number of things done around the farm in preparation for the winter, which will come, at some point... The crew has been busy cleaning up the fields; taking down fences, picking up row cover, and tucking in all the irrigation equipment.

This week we will say goodbye to the remaining members of the 2015 crew. Russell, Devin, Andy, and Kyle (who left last week and is headed to Costa Rica!) have done an incredible job wrapping up the farm season. They have helped welcome me into this community and introduced me to some of the funny quirks of Powisset Farm. I’d like to give them a big thank you for their hard work and dedication. They helped to make the 2015 farm season a great success and a lot of fun.

Powisset Happenings!


Saturday, Dec. 19th will be our last cooking class of 2015 - a kids cookie decorating party with hot apple cider! Please join us for this  fun event! Come January, we won't waste anytime. On Saturday, Jan. 2nd, our awesome PEP (Powisset Education Programs) Committee  and CSA member, Lauren Leonard, will be lead us right into the New Year with a Yoga & Goal-Setting Workshop which will help us to set intentions for 2016. For those of you who know Lauren, you know that she is a nutrition counselor, yoga instructor, and running coach...and most importantly, a motivator!

And along the setting goals theme, we will continue our Mindfulness On the Farm session every Thursday at 6:30am, including this and next Thursday (Dec. 17th & 24th).

We have a boat load of events and programs planned for 2016 - whether you love to cook, enjoy the outdoors, or thrive on crafts and DIY projects, there is something for everyone. Take a look and hope to see you all either Saturday or in 2016!
