Provider Farm

From our fields, for your family

Lucky

And just like that, the sweat shirts came off, we cast aside our knit caps and took a moment to bask in the unseasonal warmth of the past week. While the days were warm, wet, and breezy, the nights only get longer and longer as we approach the end of October. We have thus far avoided any major frost but it looks like Sunday night is going to be the night. A forecasted low of 32 degrees almost certainly means that we will feel the freeze on the farm and say good bye to our peppers and eggplants.

Making the trade

Dear Friends,

October 11, 2014

Where does all the food go?

The calendar page has turned yet again and we find ourselves in the early days of October. This past week the skies turned grey and heavy and we were greeted by a most welcome but unfamiliar guest. It feels like it hasn’t rained all season and we had to stop for a minute and just appreciate the water falling from the sky.

Curtain Call for the Solanaceae

The days are getting shorter and we continue to march on ever forward. The peppers and eggplants hold on although their time is almost done. The broccoli and cauliflower are really hitting their stride right now. Both broccoli and cauliflower are a real feast or famine kind of crop and they can drive a farmer absolutely insane. Some days we have 300 pounds others we’re lucky to find 3 heads. We try and stagger our planting dates and varieties to ensure we have a consistent harvest throughout the fall but like so many of our plans it doesn’t always work out. Nearby the Brussels Sprouts are shaping up nicely, forming bigger and bigger sprouts every day.

Good Food For All: Provider Farm Donates Food

Here at Provider Farm, we believe everyone should have access to good, fresh food. That's why we've worked with some friends to get our excess produce to those who can use it. We currently donate hundreds of pounds of organic produce a week to the New London Food bank.  We are also excited to be working with the Norwich Public Schools to get fresh vegetables into kids meals!
