Howdy Everybody! Three pieces of news:

  • it's opening weekend

  • our Plant Sale Poster is here

It's Opening Weekend

for the Farmstand at White Barn Farm 

Every Saturday & Sunday in May!

10am to 2pm

with Jordan Brothers Seafood  (Sat & Sun, 10-2)

The tent is up! Thank you Mike and Chris! I was skeptical that we could maneuver it back over our two walls! The plant situation is overflowing. As soon as any space in any greenhouse opens, it is instantly flooded with more plants! I am going a little nutty, but feeling great about the quality of the plants and the vegetables we are producing right now. I am off to a dear childhood friend's wedding this weekend, so take it easy on the crew! If you can't get to the market on Saturday, don't forget we are open on Sunday, too! Bring a cardboard box for seedlings and a reusable  bag for your groceries. Thank you for all of your support! You know we could not farm without your encouragement and patronage!
