Upcoming + Past Powisset Events


It's Monday morning and we're back to the grind. We hope that you guys had the opportunity to do lots of family fun things during school vacation week. It was a great opportunity for us to host some kids programs which we thoroughly enjoyed. We had a great time learning how to make a chocolate glazed version and a Powisset sweet potato filled one.

The following evening, it was Pizza & Board Games where, together, we constructed 3 cheese & veggie pizzas before Jenga, Zingo and Junior Scrabble competitions began. We will surely be repeating this program during April vacation week so keep your eyes open!

What's happening at Powisset this week? Lots! Take your pick from the choices below:
Saturday: Time to Make the Donuts in the morning & Cooking with Root Veggies in the afternoon
Sunday: Movie Night: Fed Up please make sure to pre-register if you plan on joining us for this event

 
Have a great week and we hope to see you at the farm!

What's happening on the farm?!
It has been an exciting week on the farm. We welcomed Andrew Kelly as the new Assistant CSA Manager (more about Andrew in next weeks blog) and we launched the pop-up farm stand last week and it has been a great success. The stand is set up under the barn in the hallway between the outside doors and the root cellar. Please stop by Wednesday - Sunday 9 to 5 and pick up your favorite Powisset storage vegetables as well as maple syrup, pies, welsh cake mix, and our own pork. The stand is self serve and we are able to accept cash and checks.

 This week in the stand you will find:
Carrots, cabbage, onions, shallots, storage radishes, rutabaga, parsnips, potatoes, beets, celeriac, popcorn, and butternut squash.

Spring is right around the corner. We will start seeding in the greenhouse in just a few short weeks! CSA sign-ups are in full swing. If you have not yet renewed your share for 2016 please do so soon. Sign-ups are being opened up to the waitlist so in-order to guarantee your spot renew today!

We look forward to seeing you all around the farm soon.

Zannah, on behalf of the farm staff.
