Powisset Past + Future Happenins!

Last weekend, we hosted 4 families for "From Nest to Table" where we hung out with the chickens, learned about what they eat, what they do, collected their eggs, fed them some treats...and we even had some brave souls, hold them, despite their large flapping wings. After we were done in the chicken coop, we came back into the warmth of the kitchen to make mini-quiches with Chef Sara! Everyone got to choose what went into their quiche, but they all included our just-collected Powisset Farm eggs. Some included some Powisset Farm bacon and others stuck to just veggies. Our next session of "From Nest to Table" will be held on Saturday, April 15th (just in time for Easter)!

What's Coming Up?

Marathon Fundraising by Margie + Ariel (our awesome Thursday farm stand volunteers)
Our awesome volunteers are running the Boston marathon...yes, 26.2 miles! And to reach their fundraising goals, they are offering these fun events. I hope you can join one or both to support them!

Spin Class @ CycleBar in Wellesley - Wed, Jan. 26th, 7pm

And...a Valentines Day Dinner here at Powisset! 
Valentine's day is always tricky - bad, over priced food, crowded restaurants and impossible reservations.  We would like to offer you an alternative.  An intimate, four course dinner of local and sustainable foods.  Couples welcome, but we would love to host the non-partnered as well.  The night will include walks around the farm, bundled up fire pit cuddles, and beer and wine pairings to compliment each course.  The cost is $50/pp, $65 with pairings, and more alcohol for purchase.  All proceeds will go to Hale reservation.  The menu is attached, but subject to alterations based on what is locally flourishing.  This dinner will be limited to 20 spots, so reserve your place early.

The first exciting bit of news for all of you meat lovers is that on Saturday from 10-2pm, we will be hosting our 2nd Meat Sale! Connor Young, our Livestock Manager will be on hand to chat with you about all things meat. We will be selling pasture-raised poultry, various cuts of pork and grass-fed beef.

And don't miss this week's awesome programs! Join Nicole Lewis on Sunday at 1pm for goal and intention setting at Revive, Refresh & Renew with Vision Board. No creative experience necessary.

Wednesday, Jan. 11th  is Tod Dimmick's Whole Grain Bread Workshop. If any of you have had Tod's bread which is sold from time to time in the farm stand, you know how addicting it is. If you would like to learn his secrets and also take your own loaf home, sign up now! His class has been known to sell out so don't wait.

We hope to see you around the farm!
