A huge thank you to all the growers for their resilience, determination, and love for plants, soil, and feeding all of us. It’s been another interesting year for growing food here in our region–quite wet this time, but many crops have been very productive! It seems this has been a great season for apples and sweet potatoes, especially, and others as well.
Share pickup dates are Saturdays, November 20, December 11, and January 8.
For Arlington/Winchester area folks pickup is the upper lot at the new All Seasons Barn at Wright-Locke Farm (up the hill, 82 Ridge Street, Winchester). More details to come as we get closer to pickup dates.
For Buzzards Bay area folks, pickup is at Bay End Farm farmstand, as usual! Please note: January shares are not delivered to Bay End–people from Buzzards Bay area pickup in Winchester for January, and there are usually shared pickup arrangements (Ridesharing for Shares!)
