It was a great and Successful First Season!! Now where onto our Bigger and Better Second Season!! Unfortunately we are not able to lease the Farm again this Season due to very poor Business decisions and very poor Land Management Skills of the Land Owner!! with that behinds us now we have secured a lease from a good friend of ours for 5 Acres of Farmland and Greenhouse on Pippin Orchard Rd in Cranston RI, We will move our Farm Stand and CSA Pick up’s to our Original Farm at 464 Central Ave Johnston RI this Season, Our CSA Signs up’s start next week on Feb 8th, We have updated the Sign up sheet with new address and info, We ask if your interested in Joining the CSA this Season to please sign up as early as possible as we need the Support and Funding for Seeds and Supplies for this Season as we didn’t expect to move the Farm in the middle of winter and the unexpected Cost of moving and everything associated with re setting up a whole Farm!! We look forward to a Great and Delicious Season of Fresh Organic Veggies!! We also like to Thank all of our CSA Members, Farmers market/Farm stand and Wholesale Customers for a Great and Successful First Season!! any questions please just send us an Email, New Farm Pictures and new Vegetables will be adding this Season Coming Soon, Stay Tuned!!!
