We had the great pleasure of planning the 1st annual Taste of Gilmanton event that occurred on September 24th. All the food was supplied by Gilmanton farmers and cooked by Gilmanton chefs. Talk about local! We capped ticket sales to 60 which sold out in a couple weeks. If you would like to be kept up to date on this event, please get on the email list at http://www.tasteofgilmanton.com. Here’s some pictures of the evening.
Here is Keith with the backpack sprayer spreading nemotoids in the garden. After much research by him, we found a strain that would help decrease the
population of our unfriendly flea beetles, cucumber beetles, squash bugs, potato beetles and much more and of course we have the dog overseeing the operation.
Today is our last day boiling. We’ve been battling the weather all season, warm, cold, snow, rain, mud, mud and more mud. Although we were closed for maple weekend, it was a low turnout for many producers who were open. Totals are down as well. We’ve made 70% of what me made last year and that appears to be consistant with other producers as well. So, as we close the chapter of another season of producing maple, it’s time to move on to the next chapter, planting. Adios maple, May next season be bette
Happy New Year! Our 2016 CSA sign ups are now active. A couple things to note: You can mix and match your CSA size. For example, for session 1 you can purchase a mini share and then other sessions you can pick a family. Regardless of what you purchase, if that purchase is made prior to March 1, 2016 you will earn an additional 10% purchasing power in vegetables. CSA is all about providing the farmer with “seed” money to purchase those up front necessary expenses. Why not treat yourself to a gift of health for the new year. If you don’t want to commit to a CSA, we also offer pay ahead cards in any denomination to be used on anything throughout the season. Thank you for your support! http://www.stillseekingfarmllc.com/purchase-csa-shares.html
