Our 2021 season is almost finished. Call ahead!! Customers told us that our sweet corn was the "Best Ever!". Danielle is pictured in the field where we grew it. We are finished early because we didn't get to plant a second crop of cukes, summer squash, and pole beans in July. It was just too wet. We lost our 3rd planting of super sweet corn, and couldn't get more seed. I am retired from my "day job" , and have returned to full time farming. We sell only what we grow, so I will open when we have enough produce, and time to sell it.
A few of my customers remember working on the farm when we had 40 acres of vegetables, plus the apples at Tainter Hill Farm. It is fun to "catch up", and I wish that I was young enough to offer summer jobs to another generation of kids, but I do it all alone and with family members now. Our operation is very small, now that I'm "retired".
The farm was recently profiled in Farm and Ranch magazine, and the FEDCO co-op seed catalog mentions our work with "Blacktail Mountain" watermelons.
RECYCLE WITH US! Thanks to the customers who bring us clean bags for corn. The best ones are the heavy duty bags from Price Rite or WalMart. We also take egg cartons that we give to egg producers. We also take plastic flower pots, and recycle the soil too.
All lambs are spoken for. We are expanding the flock, but moving away from Easter lamb production. Using the Cornell STAR system, and lessons from the Pipestone school, we plan a year around lambing system, that should produce 50 lambs a year. We are still part of the Baaay State Blanket project. We again have semi-composted sheep manure. You supply 5 gal buckets. The first one is $6, and additional buckets (up to 10 total) are $1 each, so 10 buckets will cost you $15. Cash or check only.
Except for "Pumpkin Day" in the fall (TBA), we are sold out for the year.
Massachusetts brewers grain. We have a SMALL AMOUNT of dried, heirloom, corn for use by brewers who want to add some Massachusetts grain to their beer. Free for the publicity. We also have a few of the legendary Harrison cider apples. "The best hard cider apple ever grown" was outlawed during prohibition, and it was thought that all of them were cut down. One tree survived to be rediscovered by a cider expert/historian a few years ago. We have 3 trees just coming into production.
We accept most Massachusetts Farmer's Market and WIC coupons only at the Mattapan Farmer's Market. Due to our non-regular hours at the Grafton St location, coupon rules due not allow us to accept them there. We can not accept out of state coupons.
