Two Sundays ago we hosted our annual herb walk and medicine-making workshop, led by doctor/herbalists Ellen Kamhi and Eugene Zamperion. Participants started out with a walk through the gardens and fields, collecting various plants and “weeds” while learning about their...

When you run a farm, it’s easy to forget the world at large. Any kind of upheaval—be it social, economic, or even environmental—can usually be ignored if it doesn’t directly bear on your crops, your crew, or your customers. Dan was farming upstate during 9/11, and it t...

Late-October marks the return to watching overnight lows like a hawk. We had our first frost last weekend, but we were more or less prepared. Lisa, Michael, and I spent Friday morning harvesting greens and peppers for the Saturday pickup, and in the afternoon, we shift...
