It is springtime here at New Hope Farms! It is my favorite time of year and probably the busiest.
I started this blog to in order to let you know what is going on here at Hew Hope Farms throughout the year and to chronicle how far we have come over the years.
The farming life is really the ultimate social distancing during these crazy times. We don’t have any outside employees. We run the whole farm with just my husband, myself and our two children.
It is going to be interesting to see how the social distancing is handled once the farmer’s markets open and the crowds descend in order to get all of our local wares.
I think it is especially important to buy local during times like these, not only to support our local farms, but also to ensure the safety and integrity of our fresh food supply.
I hear talk on the news about meat shortages, but if we are buying local, we can support everyone and make sure that everyone has enough of everything to keep their families fed.
There are some great resources out there for finding farm fresh produce and meats at a farm near you. One of my favorites is Eat Wild, where you can find farms that you can buy direct from hear in New England.
You can check them out here:
Another one of my favorites is yankeefarmersmarket.com.
Here is a great video that shows you what Yankee Farmer’s Market is all about.
They have a great selection of all kinds of meats including:
Very cool place and they have curbside pickup to help ensure social distancing.
That’s enough of my rambling for today.
