Spuds

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.

Now, how shall we cook them?!

July at the Farm

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.

So much to come in the near and far .

Social Hour at the Farm

Every Wednesday evening we gather for farm chores and to socialize …volunteers, drinks, food, community. Meeting new people and building relationships is what we’re all about.

New Volunteers

Kelly G., founder of ‘Change for the Better’ brought a handful of volunteers to the farm this morning for Working Wednesday. And we have first time visitor Lisa F. who found the farm to be incredible!

Thanks for joining us and becoming a part of our farm.

Redwood Nursery Blueberry Bushes

We are continuously thankful and grateful for Redwood Nursery’s donations of plants, seeds, and assistance. We are lucky and honored to have Redwood as a generous neighbor

Harvest

Welcome to B’town Farm School. We look to up cycle and create as needed. Have any hidden talents? We love when neighbors and volunteers offer their expertise and help to build us up.

Late June and into July will bring onions, potatoes, carrots and more to the farm stand.

Then we await our tomatoes … we’re excited for a full assortment of veggies late summer deep into the fall.

Working Wednesdays

Our Summer intern @pb_paige teaches 3 year old in cutting flowers and ornamental grasses for bouquets during our working wednesday volunteer session.

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)
