New! Winter Farm Share

For the first time we will be offering WINTER PICKUPS of produce once a month at the Farm Store! Each box will contain approximately 25 lb of 1/3 fresh greens and 2/3 hardy storage crops like onions, squash and potatoes to name a few. Wonderful additions for your pantry will also be available to order such as flour, maple syrup, jams, and eggs so you can have access to the Holly Hill Farm Store year around! We are still hammering out the details but if you would like to learn more please send an email to Farm Manager Dee.

Next Year Is Here

The purple top turnips are practically jumping out of the ground. So much turnip hummus to make.  Many carrots are thinned and waiting to grow more sweet after the frost. That frost may still be a fortnight or more away, as farming near the ocean has its benefits. Peck’s Meadow at Holly Hill is full, full of upright broccoli, red berried, black seeded, asparagus fern, cosmos, still lovely smelling thai basil and kale.

As culture evolved in this country,

Let’s Grow Tomatillos, Potatoes and Eat them Too

Though still awfully dry, lots of fruits on the vine are ready for harvest. The fruits of which I speak are more cucumbers, peppers and beans (all these containing seeds within), rather than apples, pears and peaches. And though Holly Hill Farm and many school gardens currently do not grow enough corn to make chips, a bag of organic corn chips can be purchased to accompany the salsa verde, as we enjoyed the other day with kids from the South Shore Educational Collaborative during their weekly field trip to Holly Hill. Some visits to schools yield a small or compromised

You Can Lead a Plant to Water

Water water everywhere and nary a drop to drink, or so say the plants at the Farm in this late summer of 2014. Though there are places in which to coax water from the often low-level well, there has certainly been no soaking or lasting, impenetrable rain to feed the broccoli or give a drink to the chard. The farmer at Holly Hill has to prioritize and painstakingly parcel out the water from the 300 gallon tank that sits on the old cart which is pulled by the hard-working 1960s vintage Massey Ferguson tractor to bring to the most needed
