Provider Farm

From our fields, for your family

Commencement with kohlrabi

And just like that, it’s over. It’s almost hard to believe. It seems like just yesterday we were anxiously awaiting the first heads of lettuce, hopeful to open our doors on time in the first week of June. Twenty three weeks, and thousands of pounds of vegetables later, we are ready to say good bye to the 2015 season.

Farm Olympics

Dear Friends,

We were forecasted to get our first frost this past weekend and boy, did we ever. Early Sunday morning the mercury dipped below 30 degrees for the first time this year. Every where you looked, you could see evidence of the chill on Sunday, wilted and dead flower and plants, but all and all about what we expect for the first frost of the year. This however, was only the beginning as the temperatures stayed low all day, the sky stayed clear and the Sunday night, the temperature plummeted. Down all the way to a frigid 24 degrees.

The secret to Provider Farm?

The wind is blowing, the leaves are falling and we are getting ready for the first real cold snap of the season. We woke up to some crunchy, lightly frosted grass earlier in the week, but it looks like this weekend is going to be the real deal. With forecasts going as low as 27 for Sunday night, it looks like there’s not much to do but face the inevitable.

The last vestige of summer

While the fall foliage is really starting to dazzle, the fall crops are doing some dazzling of their own. This past week we enjoyed the first taste of what looks to be the best crop of Brussels Sprouts we’ve ever grown.

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!
