GINGER! 
We are growing ginger in our 2nd greenhouse – it was an experiment this year, but looks like it was a great success.

Have you seen fresh ginger before? It’s a beautiful tender pink color with a riot of flavor. Thrilled to share this crop with you – we will have this in our winter share (signups are coming soon!). 

We had our last summer Friday Farm Dinner this past week. It was a magnificent night with great weather, food, music and friends of the farm. Thank you to all who have come and enjoyed one or more of the dinners this season. They are always a summer favorite around here! If you’re hankering for more farm dinners….mark you calendar for December 20th for our indoor farm dinner to celebrate the Winter Solstice. Click here for more details and to reserve your spot.
