Provider Farm

From our fields, for your family

It wont be long now

The Winter Share might be winding down, but the cold winter weather isn’t showing any signs of letting up any time soon. Its tempting to start in on a long tirade complaining about sub-zero temperatures, broken snow plows, endless shoveling, and chipping ice out of water troughs.  When I start to go down that road, I start repeating the "it could be worse" mantra too myself.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure

Snow, snow, and more snow. With blizzard warnings, and bad memories of past storms, last week we had to baton down the hatches and prepare for the worst. After a long night of snow plowing, and shoveling out the greenhouse we found ourselves with almost three feet of snow on the ground but all of our greenhouses, animals and barns all in good shape.

You can't beet our carrots!

Winter keeps rolling right along, and we are rolling with it. After seeing quite a few real cold nights and some pretty cold days in the past two weeks we’re looking forward to some more mild weather this coming week as we prepare for the fourth winter share distribution. We are continuing to make headway with our crop planning for the coming season. It’s always fun picking new varieties and exciting exotic crops, as we flip through the colorful seed catalogs and dream of spring. It takes a little while after the end of the season before we want to think about farming again.

Winter's grip

The holidays have come and gone, and once again we find ourselves in the earliest days of a brand new year. Things have been fairly quiet on the farm since our last winter share pick up. We’ve spent the past couple weeks taking some time to see friends and family and explore this wonderful area we live in. The cows, horse, chores and farm in general don’t really offer us the opportunity to take a full fledged vacation, to compensate for this we have mastered the art of the staycation, this year in the form of many hikes around the area. While a bit of a break is nice, we are excited to get back into the swing of things, shake off some of the cob webs and continue to push our way through the winter.

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!
