Farm updates…

Be ready for squash! Fall has arrived, and October is a synonym for squash, in all its shapes, colors, flavors and variety! This is the time when children have fun picking their own pumpkin and gourds. The farm has plenty of both and we invite you to come and choose your own.

Friday, October 2nd, from 10am to 5pm, the farm welcomes you to come and pick-up your gourds and pumpkin.

Pumpkins: $2 for small, $5 for medium, and $10 for big size.

Gourds: $1.50 each or 3 for $4.

Last weekend, September 26 and 27, three groups of freshmen totaling 35 students came to visit the farm and volunteered. They had a great time! Students were excited and enthusiastic to spend some time outdoors while learning about the farm, the food we grow, the ecology of the farm, and simply connecting with each other. Several of them contacted the farm a few days later and signed up for our volunteering program. Here are some moments from this beautiful and fun weekend.

What to do with your produce this week…

This week our intern Annie Klein is sharing a crispy snack from onions.


Last week we focused on spaghetti squash, and then CSA subscribers did not receive any… for that we apologize. You will see spaghetti squash in your share this week, so feel free to explore some of the recipes we posted in last week’s blog. There will be more varieties of squash until the end of the season to provide you with Vitamins A, C and the healthy fiber you need for this coming season.

Let’s celebrate pumpkin this week with some salty and sweet recipes:
