Provider Farm

From our fields, for your family

How the cookie crumbles

Where once we woke to early morning light steaming through our windows, now it is as dark as dark gets. This past week, morning chores have been a chilly endeavor, accompanied by a head lamp and sweat shirt, as we tend to the cows, chickens and horse. By the time 7 o’clock rolls around and the crew begins to gather, the day is bright and warm, the earlier chill all but forgotten.

Working smarter

I guess someone decided to crank the heat and squeeze every little bit of summer out of this month that they could. I for one, love the heat and I can even tolerate the humidity. I may not be crazy about the dehydration or blurred vision but in general I don’t mind when the seasons behave they way I expect them too. Snow in January, fine by me. Snow in April? Not so great.

The fruits of our labor

With the addition of a most pleasant rain storm, this past week floated by in a dreamy August haze. This is an especially satisfying time of year for us, walking through fields that are bursting at the seams with amazingly delicious food. Weeding the sweet potatoes is far more pleasant when you can stop and take a cantaloupe break.

Maybe this is going to be ok

Bright, sunny and not too hot, add some fantastic melons to the mix, and you have the ingredients for an absolutely lovely week on the farm. Even our well pump inexplicably failing Monday night couldn’t dampen our spirits! (Alright, so maybe it dampened our spirits a little bit, but only until we got the problem fixed).

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!
