Provider Farm

From our fields, for your family

Shaking off the Cobwebs

April is here, the sun has come out and it looks like spring may finally be here to stay. After one of the coldest Marches that we can remember, 50 degrees and sunny is quite alright with us. While late March and early April are traditionally a very busy time for us on the farm, this year we have been stuck in a bit of a holding pattern. We have spent a lot more time waiting for things to warm up and dry out than I can every remember doing before.

Winter's End

It looks like we have finally made it. The last distribution of our first Winter Share. The end of any CSA season is always a bit bitter sweet. On one hand, we have really enjoyed the winter share and are sorry to see it end. Feeding our community is a real passion of ours, if being able to do so from June through November feels great than having fresh produce available December, January, and February is simply fantastic.

Turning a Corner

Even though the snow falls while I write this, I am more convinced than ever that spring is right around the corner. How can I be so sure?  Despite the bad news from Puxatony Phil and the snow covering the farm, things are undoubtably starting to turn the corner.

Knock, knock, knock

After another lovely warm spell, old man winter is once again knocking on our doors. We knew it wouldn't last but there is something awfully nice about days in the mid 40's in January. The kale and spinach took advantage of the warmth and perked up considerably although I am afraid the impending cold will once again take a bit of wind our of their sails. The kale tastes great this time of year but if it is cold and cloudy when we harvest the kale will be a bit on the floppy side.

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 a couple hundred pounds of organic produce a week to several food pantries in the area and to the Bacon Academy's food service program, where high schoolers learn to cook using our produce. We will also become the hub for donations at the end of the Coventry market.
