Summer Surprises

Foxglove has always been the calendar for announcing summer.  Being a biennial, the surprise comes in guessing where we will see it growing from year to year.   Foxglove can grow in the pastures where the sheep graze, as they would never eat this poisonous beauty.

Reader Question: The Origins of Barberry Hill Farm

Kingsley's Uncle Bronson, at the Madison Beach Club location, 1910

Dear Kelly and Kingsley,
Every time I pick up my CSA, I wonder about the history of Barberry Hill Farm. How did it start?  Thanks, and I loved my tomatoes!

CSA Members: Stop By!

Barberry Hill Farm is lucky to have an active and supportive community of CSA members.  This is an open invitation to all of our members to stop by.  We are working towards the first CSA pickup, in what is looking like the middle to the end of June.
