Oops….we’ve been out in the garden..WEEDING. Sorry for the brief hiatus…but there’s plenty of news to share today.
Barrington Farm Day! Sunday, June 29, 2008, 10am-3pm.
On Sunday Barrington farms are opening their doors to the public so that we can learn all about how animals and vegetables are raised and grown. At Lasting Legacy Farm, there will be a sheep shearing demonstration at 11am, and lunch available from 11:30 until it runs out. Warren Farm will have strawberry desserts available and all the farms will have local food and/or fiber (for the knitters!) for sale. Visit http://www.seacoasteatlocal.org/barrington/index.html for maps and participating farm information!
2008 Seacoast Harvest is here!
Make sure you check out the new Seacoast Harvest website at www.seacoastharvest.org – you’ll find a searchable database of locally grown food and where you can buy it directly from the growers! Also available is a seasonal harvest calendar, so you know when you can expect a food to be ready for harvest, information on agricultural terms, and a printable version of the guide. Look for Seacoast Harvest at area farmers’ markets, in The Wire’s Summer Guide, and at Yellow House Farm during Barrington Farm Tour Day!
