We are offering a sweat heart of a deal good through Valentine’s Day. Ten Percent (10%) off all of our maple syrup. Heck, if you order at least $100’s worth, we will even deliver it (limited to a 20 miles radius from our farm). Otherwise, you will pick it up at the farm.
Some of you may know that we are associated with Gilmanton’s Own. So if you order anything through any of the farmers/vendors associated with Gilmanton’s Own, we will even take 15% of any maple syrup you order through us. Same deal applies. If you order over $100’s worth we will deliver it (limited to the 20 mile radius of our farm).
To order your maple syrup go here and apply the code “Yum!” at checkout (don’t use the quotation marks).

Thank you for supporting local! Michelle and Keith
We just finished planting 2,000 strawberry plants. These are full size plants so by planting them in the fall they can get established and you get a full harvest in June. Conventional methods have you planting in the spring, waiting a year and then getting the bounty. We can’t wait to offer nutrient dense, chemical free strawberries to our customers next year.
Fresh basil at the market today. Also we are vendor of the week. Any purchase from us, enters you into a raffle to win $20 in market bucks.
We went picking strawberries this morning. I think we went a little overboard. We made 59 jars of jam, including rhubarb and sugarless and put up 20 quarts in the freezer for future jam making. Plus we did some garden work and harvested for the CSA pick up this afternoon. Very, very productive day.
Apple jelly on the left (first time making it) and apple butter on the right. For those of you who’ve made apple butter before, you know it’s a very long process – up to 8 hours of cooking.
Today was the last day for the summer markets for the season. We start our winter market schedule on Thursday from 3-6 at the Skate Escape in Laconia on Court Street. A change from last year. This time it will be every Thursday through May – a total of 34 weeks!
Also we note our blog followers have doubled in the past week. Not sure how this happened but THANK YOU! Let us know if you have any questions or want us to focus on something in particular.
We brought our Hakurei Turnips for the first time to the markets this week. They were well received. A small nice white turnip – radish size. You can eat them raw, sliced in a salads and we’ve discovered so many recipes for them – not just salads. We are handing out about 5 recipes to go along with the turnips for serving suggestions. There are many tasty ones that we are looking forward to trying.
Here’s a picture of just one of our tables set up at yesterday’s market. Really love the way the produce is looking and tasting this year.
