Second-to-Last Farmstand Weekend of 2018

Posted 12/13/2018 8:43am by christy kantlehner.

Hello White Barn Farm Fans! Thank you for coming to our farm to buy your groceries!

Hours in the Barn:thru Dec. 23

Friday: 10am to 6pm

Saturday & Sunday: 10am to 4pm

Jordan Brothers Seafood - Friday: 2pm - 6pm

and Saturday: 10am - 2pm

The greenhouse greens are being harvested this week - spinach, pea tendrils, and lettuce mix. 50 winter CSA shareholders get the first 50 bags of each, and then it's a free-for-all for the rest! (I'm imagining a fistfight frenzy over cabbage patch dolls in toy stores during the 80's)

   

In addition to our sweet candy-carrots and baby beets, we've ordered in some larger carrots and beets from Queen's Greens in western Mass. We also traded 200lbs of our onions to get 200lbs of potatoes from Vanguarden CSA in Dover.

Onesies and Toddler Tees will be ready Friday - reserve the size and color you'd like for the little cutie in your life! If you know someone expecting I'm thinking a onesie and a gift card for buying organically grown veggies to nourish a new mother and then to make baby's first solid foods from would be a good combo!

  

We are making our simple but adorable little popcorn-on-the-cob bundles again this year. Something fun for kiddos and delicious for everyone! A good item for the person who does not need one more thing. There are three brown paper bags wrapped up in string so each cob can go in a bag in the microwave to pop right on/off the cob. Of course, you can just put those bags aside for a picnic lunch, then press and twist those kernels off the cob and pop in high-heat oil on the stovetop (my favorite).

    

Generosity! If anyone would like to buy our produce to be donated to the Wrentham Food Pantry, we feel it is the perfect season for that kind of giving! The benefit of your dollars will be felt twice in our community - once supporting your local, organic vegetable farm, and a second time by the community supported by the Wrentham Food Pantry.

Hot Stuff! Hot Sauce Fans, prepare yourselves! You may have noticed that last week we added Kitchen Garden's two Sriracha versions to our lineup. We have been carrying Rhed's Hot Sauce since the summer, and get ready - now we have a hot sauce made from our own hot peppers and garlic. Our friend Kenneth started Emass Provisions Company and has made one heck of a farm condiment for you to enjoy! We think a little assortment of our different hot sauces and a bag of dry beans from Baer's Best, padded with White Barn garlic, onions, and dried cayenne peppers would be a thoughtful, locally produced gift collection! Just sayin . . .

We are operating on a bit of a shoestring here and still have giant puddles/icy patches in our driveway, depending on the temperature. Please use all of your senses to navigate this treacherous terrain and we will try to do a better job of using ice melt and marking icy spots. We also have some parking right at the barn, but sometimes not enough. That means if you park at the summer farmstand you must cross state highway 1A. Please do not assume anyone will stop for you. In fact, assume they are reading a text message, drinking a coffee, eating an egg sandwich, punching an address into their GPS, handing a toy to their kids in the backseat, or all of these things at once - anything but stopping for you to cross the street. Once both directions of traffic have stopped, jauntily, carefully, cross the road.

You are not too late to snatch up one of our beautifully decorated evergreen wreaths, each one handcrafted by our own lovely floral designer, Laurene Hulbig. She has completed the final round of wreaths, so get yours this weekend!

That's it, all of you patient, steadfast people who somehow made it to the end of this email. We really appreciate you. You lift us up. Enjoy this holiday season! Don't get too stressed and remember to eat your (roasted) veggies!
