Littlewood Farm 2018

There is some big news here at Littlewood Farm this spring!  Under the guidance of Joey and Betsy, two young farmers are taking the reins and carrying on the legacy of Littlewood Farm.  We feel honored at the opportunity to work this land that has flourished under Joey and Betsy’s stewardship and excited to meet the community that has so strongly supported local, organically grown food for decades.  We will be selling our produce through the Plainfield Community Coop, the Plainfield Friday Farmers Market, and Hunger Mountain Coop.  We are currently filling up our greenhouses with seedlings for the 2018 Spring Plant Sale, which will begin May 12 and be open weekends 9-2 and
 weekdays 4-6 (other times “by chance or appointment”).  We truly hope you will stop by for your garden needs or just to introduce yourself to your new neighborhood farmers.
We look forward to meeting you,
Kagen Dewey and Elise Magnant

Barre Farmers’ Market Begins Tomorrow!

The Barre Farmers’ Market begins tomorrow!  The market goes from 3-6:30pm, rain or shine… so bring an umbrella to ward off these showers!  It’s downtown in City Hall Park, right in front of the Opera House.  Come out to meet all the vendors and scope out our products!

tender lettuce!

Littlewood Farm will bring yummy spring greens: lettuce and baby spinach, braising greens and bunched mustards, bunched arugula and cilantro; as well as asparagus and rhubarb, organic dry black beans, and a selection of our organic plant seedlings. The black beans are a really exciting product for me; if you’ve never had “fresh” dried beans, then you’re in for a treat.  They cook up much faster than store-bought dried beans but it’s the taste that really highlights the difference.  They are incredibly creamy and rich!  This year we’re going to be growing a couple different varieties of dry beans and a variety of garbanzos.  I’ll update you on their progress as the season goes on.  For now, we have some gorgeous black beans that Joey grew last year on the farm and we’ll be bringing them to market in 2-cup containers.

2 cups dried beans = 6 cups cooked beans

We hope to see you there!
