Farm Update

Better sign up soon for the Fall CSA because we may scale our numbers back and space will be limited!    Stay tuned in the next few days for the e-mail, which will first go out a day before to CSA members, and then to the general public.   First come, first serve.  This winter, we’re adding MEAT to the CSA!    I can’t wait!    In other news, I want to say THANK YOU to my co-worker Serena Putterman.  They have been putting in 100% –  often pulling 10 hour shifts.   After a three month initial period, Serena is now our Assistant Farm Manager.   Serena oversees seeding, transplanting, washing/packing, documentation, and the Providence farmer’s market!     Also, our farmhand Justin Lamouthe will be returning to teach in a week.   We are now in search for a new farmhand – 20 – 30 hours a week and pay $10 – 12/hour + unlimited access to farm produce.   Please help us forward our job description – coming soon.

  1. YARD LONG BEANS. 

    These babies stir-fry particularly well, or they can be cut up and eaten raw.   They are a whole new bean, so don’t try to compare them to the standard green bean.   Here are a few recipe ideas.
