Provider Farm

From our fields, for your family

Nature's super heroines

Some well timed rain and cooler temperatures made for a much more pleasant experience on the farm this past week. The rain came and went intermittently, watering our youngest carrots and beets and allowing us time to finally make it to the DMV. The first sunny day after it rains is an excellent time to get out into the fields and kill weeds. The soil is soft and ripe, teaming with freshly germinated weed seeds. It is incredibly satisfying to cultivate in general and especially satisfying to cultivate when it is most effective

Chaos and Order

Dear Friends,

It’s that wonderful time of year again. The time of year when we sweat through our shirts by 9am and the garlic is ready to harvest. This is the time of year when we are as likely to see the sun rise from the field, out early to harvest,  as we are to watch is set from the tractor seat, trying to squeeze a few more rows of cultivation into an already full day. No matter how much we wash, our hands never seem to get clean and a good night’s sleep is an old friend we never seem to have enough time for anymore.

The Circus

If this isn’t summer, I don’t know what is. Hot humid days and thunder storms, cucumbers, and the first blush of color on our high tunnel tomatoes. The 4th of July rain was a most welcome sight as things were looking pretty dry and dusty out there. We are in the thick of our summer squash, zucchini and cucumber harvest. This past week we brought in over a thousand pounds of these summer favorites.

Jogo Bonito

As the first month of CSA distribution draws to a close and we head into July, things are in full swing on the farm. The sunshine this past week was perfect for tackling our ever growing list of weeding projects and all of the crops seem to be enjoying the heat. We have been irrigating almost every day, making sure all the crops are happily watered so they can take full advantage of warm days. The watermelons and cantaloupes are finally freed from their row cover and are starting to vine out. Our high tunnel tomatoes are heavy with green fruit, and it looks like it won’t be long now.

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!
