Things are moving and shaking at White Barn Farm. Peas got planted April 4th to christen the soil with seeds for 2014! We've also got carrots, radishes, salad turnips, arugula, and mustard mix in the ground. Yesterday we had our first transplanting session and got spinach, broccoli raab, and bok choy seedlings planted. Today lettuce seedlings will go into our high tunnel. Our seed starting greenhouse is getting full and fat for the Plant Sale! The season is underway and it feels good. Last night before I went to bed, I noted from the color of my face that it is now time to start putting on sunblock. It's hard to believe, but spring is finally here. 

Here are some last minute notices, as usual!!

April 12th - 10am to 3pm - Norfolk Lions Club Health & Wellness Fair - Freeman Kennedy School in Norfolk. Blood Drive, Eye Screenings, tons of booths with interesting vendors/organizations dedicated to wellness, including White Barn Farm. We will have a small sampling of early spring greens (spinach, kale, parsley), black radishes, popcorn, cookbooks, pint glasses (for two delicious servings of water, of course!). We'll also bring along organic seeds, compost and potting soil for your garden or containers. Bring a check and we can do Farmstand CSA Sign-Ups, too! Hope to see you there. Yes! It's tomorrow!

April 15th - 7pm to 8pm - Meet Your Farmer Night - Fiske Public Library in Wrentham. Come meet Chris and Christy, check out a slideshow, ask questions, find out why and how we do what we do. We can take Farmstand CSA Sign-Ups at the end. Yes! That is this Tuesday!

May 1st - Farmstand CSA Sign-Up Deadline to get an extra 10% added to your debit card. You commit to shop at the farmstand at the $200, $400, or $600 level and we will issue you a debit card with an extra 10%. You can use it anytime the farmstand is open to buy just what you want. This is a great option for people who would like to be CSA members at the farm, but think the Boxed share could be too much, or go on vacation for a few weeks, or want to choose exactly what to buy rather than pick up a "mystery box." Also, we have a Waiting List for the Boxed CSA right now, so this is a way to still commit yourself to a season of healthy, fresh produce. Just pick a day to come to the farmstand each week! You can buy or reload a card after May 1st and still get 5% extra value added.

May 3rd - 10am to 2pm - Official Opening Day at White Barn Farm. We will be open every Saturday in May, 10 to 2. We will even have produce available during the Plant Sale, amid all the excitement.

May 17th and 18th - 10am to 4pm - 6th Annual Plant Sale!  Vegetable, Herb, and Flower Starts for your garden. Plus we have bags of McEnroe Organic Potting Soil and Compost and High Mowing Organic Seeds for your direct seeded crops. Always an energizing and fun event!

June 3rd - 12pm to 7pm - Summer Hours Begin at the Farmstand. Tuesday to Friday 12 to 7. Saturdays 10 to 2. 

September 2nd - 12pm to 6pm - Back-to-School Hours Begin at the Farmstand. Tuesday to Friday 12 to 6. Saturdays 10 to 2.

October 25th - 10am to 2pm - Harvestween - Final Farmstand of the Regular Season

November 1st - Fall Hours Begin at the Farmstand. Saturdays 10 to 2. We move into the barn and hope to be open every Saturday until December 20th!

 Take Care, Everybody!!! See you Soon!
