We’ll be back at the Dieppe Market this coming Saturday, April 9th. We’ve got lots of greens in our unheated tunnel with more ready to be planted in their spot.

We’ve also got the sweetest spinach you’ll ever eat, gorgeous kales, and bok choi. Can’t wait to see you at the Market! your farmers, ShannonRead More

Thank you so much for your support of our small farm and for sharing our values of earth stewardship and good health!Read More
