We are trialing early (8 week), mid (10 week), and late (12 week) potatoes this year. Today we pulled our first plant and we found tubers … totally stoked for these. And easy to grow … a few weeks of pest control by hand eye coordination and we were all set …
Now we know we can grow potatoes here … love sandy soil helps.
July is here and it’s wondrous heat … we’ll get a beach day in there but early July means lots of transplanting of beets and beans and direct seeding of carrots and other crops for a successful fall harvest.
It’s peak season for vacation and holiday play and for us that means bucking down and fortifying our investments in the soil and our mission.
This summer, join us for working Wednesdays, where we open the farm to volunteers of all ages and abilities to assist in a variety of farm chores and projects. We host working Wednesdays from 9:00-10:00 a.m. and 6:30-7:30 p.m. every week. Reach out to Farmer Dan to get involved, or email us!
At Barrington Farm School we relish in community and are funded by grants and donations. To that end, the farm stand is always open to customers on a self serve, self pay basis. Simply choose your produce or products, then add your donation amount (we post desired pricing) and drop $$$ into the red cash box. EVERY SATURDAY WE ARE AT THE FARM STAND TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AND TO MEET AND GREET WITH THE COMMUNITY (9AM-12PM)
Courtesy of a wonderful bee grant, Dane Pursley takes participants in our bee program to check hives (queen is the one with green dot). If interested in participating with the bee program, please email Dane to learn more.
Did you know Farmer Dan is a native of Uruguay? Thanks to Tim Faulkner (co-founder of bfs) our garden beds have acquired charming names. Little Uruguay is ready for tomato seedlings (02 June). We”ll transplant indeterminate and determinate organic seed varieties here.
