Farm Share Friday!

Once a week, from May to the end of October, my farm share partner and I carpool over Mt. Tom and down into Easthampton, Massachusetts.  We're headed to Mountain View Farm to pick up our weekly farm share.  From the crunchy, almost sweet baby radishes in May, to the earthy leeks in October, the farm provides colorful, organic, fresh vegetables and farm-y eye candy. In addition to its regular share, Mountain View also offers a '100 Pound Winter Share' (Hint: GET A WINTER FARM SHARE.)


Every Friday from now through the fall, I will share images from our weekly farm pick up. I hope you'll enjoy seeing what the farm has to offer.  Next week? FIRST SHARE WEEK!

  1. Is the 100 pounder all vegetables that winter over in your cellar or do they have stuff to can or freeze too? Just wondering...

  2. Hi Cheryl! 99% of the 100 pounder are all vegetables to over winter, with some more delicate veggies thrown in, like broccoli and kale.

  3. I almost signed up for a farm share but then wondered who I was kidding. My picky, picky children might take one bite of a vegetable. Maybe I should have done it just for me?

  4. I grew up in Kansas, and while I'm definitely a city girl, I love the farm views (maybe not the smells).

  5. LOVE that picture of the rows with the barn in the background. Is that spinach? I'm such a bad country girl.

  7. That sounds SO COOL. Here in the Yucatan Peninsula, there's pretty much no agriculture due to the soil conditions. We have awesome beaches, though!!!

    I'm SO JEALOUS, and I can't wait to see more pics of the farm goodies!

  8. Very cool! I love organic produce. This is our first stab at growing organic fruits & veggies. It's definitely been a learning experience, but so rewarding at the same time.

    SITS visiting & blog following. Peace. :)

  9. A farm share sounds fab. Wonder if we have any near us. Near meaning an hour away since we're in the city. I hope so. Can't wait to see all your goodies all summer long. I'm sooo jealous right now.
