Powisset Happenings

This is an off week for the winter share. This week the farm crew is busy cleaning up around the farm preparing for winter. We are relishing this mild weather. Often by this time of year the ground is frozen and we are harvesting in driving sleet. We have received many heavy frosts at this point but if the weather stays mild we should have a variety of greens available next week including the sweetest spinach I have ever eaten.


The final winter share distribution is:

December 19th from 10am to 2pm

Farm stand hours will also be December 19th 10am to 2pm

Past & Future Powisset Events

Saturday was busy here with CSA pick-up, some of our lovely vendors and Maria Speck, cookbook author of "Simply Ancient Grains". Maria spoke with guests about cooking with ancient grains, nutrition facts, and signed some books. While she was gabbing away, I was busy at the stove, flipping my version of her Oatmeal Butternut Pancakes with Browned Butter Nuts which also makes an appearance in the book. And I have to say, they were pretty damn good...and so easy to make! For those of you who are interested in purchasing her book, I managed to convince her to leave some signed copies behind with me. Please contact me at nnacamuli@thetrustees.org or stop by the farm by Dec. 19th if you do want a copy ($27.50 each). For more information about her book click here or visit www.mariaspeck.com.

And on Sunday, 12 trays of baklava were created! My mother, Claudine Nacamuli, led us in a class on how to make this simple middle eastern dessert. And I think I managed to convince everyone that baklava IS easy to make.

Our last classes of 2016 are next week! On Tuesday, Dec. 15th. Nicole Lewis will lead us in a DIY Bath & Body Gifts for the Holidays workshop. An amazing body scrub (shown below) is just one of the items that we will be making. And, Saturday, Dec. 19th is our Cookie & Hot Apple Cider Cooking Workshop for Kids!
