Help Wanted!

And I don’t just mean help wanted eating all these delicious vegetables! If farming is your thing, your offspring’s thing, your neighbor’s thing, or your second cousin’s thing….or you want it to be your thing, please be in touch. Lane is leaving for greener pastures, so I am in need of someone starting August 1st, preferably someone who can finish out the season into November. But I’m open to whatever help I can get! Think this through for a minute. Instead of paying ME to grow your vegetables, I will pay YOU to grow your own vegetables. Though I don’t want to romanticize it – the work is as taxing as you probably think  it is, times 10. Free veggies, no need for a gym membership, and I can guarantee you will sleep well at night – what more could you ask for in a job!?

We do also need help eating all these veggies! After a slow start, everything seems early this season. There will be a few field-grown heirloom tomatoes for sale (what?!), as well as a few cherry tomato half-pints. Still not enough for me to make available on the website though. Rainbow carrots will be available in limited quantities. So that everyone can have a taste of the rainbow, I’m limiting them to one per person. Beans also are a newcomer to the list, although also limited quantities. Not limited are those incredible cucumbers – literally every time I eat one I’m surprised at how good it is…and I don’t even like cucumbers generally! And basil, basil, basil – it’s time to put up lots of pesto so you can enjoy it all winter long like we do. If you want to order basil in bulk, please reply to this email. Order away, go bananas!

Ordering and Pickup Procedures:
Put your orders in online before 6am Monday. We’ll have your order available for you to pick-up from 4-7pm Monday on the farm at 64 Potter Hill Rd in Grafton. Pickups are in the long white garage on the left across from the big red barn at the crest of the hill.
