Seeding and CSA/Farm Share 2018 Enrollment

This is the time of year when our 2018 season begins.  We look ahead to the growing months, study the copious notes of past years, and try to select and purchase the right combination of seeds and supplies.  Some seeds are relatively inexpensive, some heirloom varieties are surprisingly expensive, and a few needed seeds are difficult to find at any price.

This activity, both exciting and even nerve-wracking, is one reason we appreciate so much those people who sign up early for the 2018 CSA/Farm Share.  As is the model of Community Supported Agriculture/ Farm Share, early funds go into purchases such as these, that will help ensure the best possible quality and quantity of crops come  June, July, and beyond. For those who are interested in signing up for our 2018 CSA/Farm Share, or for more information, contact us at csa@barberryhillfarm.com

Wreaths and Christmas Decorations at Our Stand

We make our own wreaths from native materials gathered here at the farm.
Visitors to our stand, and at the Wooster Square Farmers Market in New Haven, can now buy fresh wreaths, made at the farm from a wide variety of materials gathered on the property.

Look to this Day...

“Look to this day for it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence. The bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendor of beauty... For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision.  But today well-lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day.”  - Kalidasa (sanskrit)

Around the Farm in Autumn

"Combine crisp air with fallen leaves and clear blue skies, add a tablespoon of exhilaration and a pinch of melancholy and you have Autumn in New England. Nothing like it anywhere." - A Friend
