From our fields, for your family

The power of vegetables

Another picturesque October week has come and gone. October is flying by right before our very eyes. This is a wonderful time of year, the foliage is just starting to turn bright and brilliant and the harvests are really rolling in. We continue our steady march harvesting our storage crops harvest.

Minor roots, major accomplishments

Dear Friends,

For the first time in what feels like forever, it finally rained on Monday. The fields all enjoyed a long over due drink and we enjoyed a some what relaxing rainy afternoon. On Tuesday, the sun came back out and so did we. I can never remember a time that is has stayed this warm this late in to October.

Knocking it out of the park

Fall continues to fall all around us. The leaves are changing, the crops are rolling in, the baseball playoffs have begun. Everywhere we look it is clear that autumn is upon us. The temperatures holding steady in the high 70’s has given this October a little bit of a surreal beginning to it, but other than that we are feeling that all too familiar feeling of fall. This past week we polished off our potato harvest. Once the final spuds were out of the ground and safely stored away in the cooler, Hannah and Holly went to work putting that field to bed.

Making up for lost time

Dear Friends,

One last gasp of summer? We went from very hot, humid and fairly uncomfortable all the way back to cool, dry and lovely basically over night this week. We deal with heat worse than that all summer long but there was something about this week, Wednesday in particular that seemed to really discourage our usually unflappable farm crew. I don't mind hot too much but we like our seasons to stay within their lanes or else everyone, plants, animals, and  farmers, start feeling all out of sorts.

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!
