Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetOur 26 CSA season will begin in one month, June 4th.  The pick-ups are held every Thursday at Bell Street Chapel (5 Bell Street in Providence) between the hours of 3 and 7pm.  You will be updated as the time approaches.  Once the pick-up begins it will be your responsibility to make to the pick-up every week to pick up your share(s).  We are looking forward to seeing our returning members and meeting all of our new members as well!

Things at the farm are rolling along ata steady clip.  We have finally pulled out of our early spring-mud routine.  Except for the warmest and driest of springs we are usually hobbled by wet, muddy fields which stall outdoor planting.  But, at this point many of our fields have some nature of crop planted and our greenhouses are full of early carrots, beets, radishes, onions, and our earliest summer tomatoes and peppers.  We have peas germinating in the field and a wide assortment of greens and lettuces planted and warming under row-cover fabric.  Kales, Collards, Chards, Cabbages, Asian Lettuces, Dandelion, are all planted in the field at this point.  In our propagation house we have herbs slowly growing, waiting to be transplanted into 4″ pots for your shares.  This is a exciting time, spring is always full of promise and anticipation on the farm.  Hope you are as excited as we are to get some of these rich vegetables to you.  Stay tuned for email updates as we get closer to our go-date.  Best Wishes, John
