Follow Us on Facebook or Instagram


Hi Folks,

As we approach the end of the Winter Share, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for joining us on this seasonal journey. We hope it's been a flavorful and enriching experience for you all!


This week marks an exciting transition as we use the final Winter Share pickup to test and refine our new and improved Farm Shares program, set to launch on May 1st. We're thrilled to offer you a diverse selection of items to choose from this week. You'll have the opportunity to select four items from a curated list to customize your share. Simply bring your chosen items to the register for our Farmstand crew to assist you and record your selections. Additionally, everyone will receive this week's special provision: a 1.75 lb bag of Organic Oats from Maine Grains!


We also want to express our gratitude for your patience and understanding regarding add-on shares. Rest assured, we're in the final stages of ironing out the details for a Mushroom Farm Share and an Egg Farm Share for the upcoming 24/25 season. Stay tuned for more information!


For those who haven't yet secured their spot, time is running out! There are only 10 spots left in the Spring Farm Share. Don't miss out on the opportunity to embrace the bounty of the season ahead.


Thank you again for your ongoing support and enthusiasm for White Barn Farm. We look forward to continuing to grow and thrive together.

Storage Tips

  • Greens: Store best in your refrigerator. Keep in the plastic bag they come in and keep it closed. If ever feeling overwhelmed by greens, pop a bag in your freezer! They can be used frozen in smoothies or into anything you are going to cook like soups or stews.

  • Onions: Store onions in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. Maintain storage temperature of 45-55°F. Do not wrap onions in plastic or store in plastic bags. A lack of air circulation will reduce shelf life.

  • Potatoes: Should be stored in a cool, dark place with good ventilation. A temperature range of 45-50°F is ideal. Avoid storing them near onions, as both release gases that can accelerate spoilage.

  • Root Vegetables: Wrap unpeeled and unwashed in a dry paper towel, and store them in an airtight food storage container or bag. Store in the coolest part of your refrigerator.

  • Sweet Potatoes: These will keep well on your counter for at least a week. For longer term storage, keep your sweet potatoes in a paper bag or basket in a kitchen cabinet, pantry, or basement. Choose a cabinet that's not near the heat of your oven. A spot closer to the floor will be cooler. Sweet potatoes prefer a temperature between 50 and 60 degrees.

 

Pick up Procedures for the Winter Share


  • All operations will be conducted at the door of our retail greenhouse located at 431 South St, Wrentham, MA.

  • Choose 4 items out of the list.

  • Bring items to the register (really hoping we'll be able to be set up outside all week!) for the Farmstand Staff to check you off and record your choices.

  • Online orders can be scheduled for pick-up on Wednesdays (10am-5pm), Fridays (10am-5pm), and Saturdays (10am-2pm). Meaning you can pick up additional items at the same time you plan to pick up your Share.

  • Pre-ordering your items online will help to ensure a smooth and efficient experience, especially in case of inclement weather. Order Online.

  • Most items will be available for purchase on-site, including bread and frozen sausage and beef, on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Please see staff when you are picking up your share unless otherwise noted.

 

Pick up is Wednesday/Friday from 10 - 5 or Saturday 10 - 2

Thank you so much for support!
