Provider Farm

From our fields, for your family

Summer rain

And just like that it starts to pour. Not rain from the sky, but vegetables from the field. Eggplants shinning purple and beautiful, the very first tomatoes sitting red and ready on the vine. The peppers aren’t far off. Beneath the canopy of vines the first watermelons and cantaloupe are forming round and beautiful. I love to see the summer crops begin to take form.

Onions and alchemy

An exceptionally humid, warm and soggy week has left us sweating, soaked and in search of dry clothing. We had 6 straight days with a 40-60% chance of severe storms, with high temps and high humidity. Fortunately for the farm, the bulk of the storms seem to have missed us. This weather is very conducive for all sorts of growth. Plant growth to be sure, but also fungal and bacterial growth. The extended leaf wetness and the warm temperatures turn the entire farm into one big petri dish.

The July wave

A real whirl wind of a week. Sometimes it feels like farming in July is something that happens to us, more than it is something that we do. No matter how many seasons we farm, or how mentally prepared I believe us to be, when the wave of July truly crashes into us, we are always left stunned and shaken.

Shaking the etch a sketch

Sunny skies, warm nights and we’re cruising towards July. We’re starting to hit our stride on the farm. The crew is used to the rhythm of the week. Tasks flow seamlessly into one another. Every week we start off with a daunting list of things to do, an almost impossibly long list

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!
