Jumping Right In We have hit the ground running in 2017! Our new solar panels are up! Thanks to ReVision Energy's quick work, our new solar array is already cranking out electricity --- and will produce over 90% of the farm's annual electrical needs. We have officially joined the renewable energy movement, and we feel great about it!
Boxes of seeds are arriving in the mail! We've ordered our giant bags of potting soil from Vermont Compost and seed shipments are arriving daily. By mid-February we will be seeding our first round of microgreens in the greenhouse. Onions, peppers, and tomatoes are next! That's only 2 weeks away!
The farm crew is fired up and ready to go --- and they can't wait to meet all of you! Now that the days are getting longer, our hoophouse greens are coming out of hibernation and starting to grow again! Weather-permitting, we'll be harvesting spinach for the February 11th Winter Farmers' Market at Exeter High School.
We are embracing 2017 as a YEAR OF ACTION, here at the farm, and out in our community. With all of the political uncertainty we are all dealing with right now, we are staying grounded by re-committing ourselves to the work of growing food for our community, and advocating for a bright future for local agriculture. There is surely a lot of work to do right now. We won't stop making phone calls to our elected officials, and showing up to fight for for what is important to us -- and we will also dive into the work we know how to do right here at the farm. We will help more people learn to grow their own vegetables. We will plant more cover crops, and build up the organic matter in our soil. We will make solar power! We will feed our friends and neighbors healthy food. We will volunteer our time with community organizations that our doing important work. Please join us!
Looking forward to seeing you all back at the farm this spring! It's right around the corner.
