Spring for Fresh

The renewal and energy that emerges with the arrival of spring is both palpable and contagious. This season, our efforts to spread the word about CSA are focused on the idea of cultivating a “fresh food lifestyle”. We recognize that our members are not choosing CSA as the most convenient route to source their weekly … More Spring for Fresh

Bartolo!

It’s pretty amazing to be seeding next season’s cabbage, while still enjoying perfect cabbage from the last. This is the mighty ‘Bartolo’, our Fall Harvest Share cabbage from 2016- still going strong. This week, we seeded well over 1,000 plants down at Parker Farms Greenhouse (where we do all our seed-starting), began high tunnel ground … More Bartolo!

The coming of winter marks dramatic shift here at Groundworks Farm, although we can’t admit to having slowed down much since the end of the 2016 growing season!

The frantic summer harvest ceases, and under a harvest moon, the fall gathering begins. It’s high time … More So long summer: Enter Fall

(roo-tuh-bay-guh). As a CSA farm, in addition to providing abundant, sustainably grown (and fresh) produce, we try to keep things interesting. Enter rutabaga.

No Chard Left Behind

Clearly, we love a good play on words. In all seriousness though, as community farmers, we want each CSA share subscriber to enjoy and make the most of their vegetable share. This time of year, during the ‘Leaf Explosion’, something we’ve heard every year is that CSA members sometimes have a difficult time using all … More No Chard Left Behind
