Dear Friends,

We hope you are doing well and looking forward to the new year! With all that is going on the world, we are grateful for love, family, friendship, and community. We are grateful to know you and for being a part of the community of gardeners.

Looking ahead to the new year, we wonder what can we do to help make the world a more peaceful place? Together we can plant the seeds of hope. Each of us can do little things and embrace the world in small ways. One thing we can do is to grow a garden, where we can raise food and flowers that bring nourishment and delight to our homes and to those we share them with. We hope you will be able to garden this year and we hope we can grow a few vegetable, herb, and flower plants for you.

We will continue with our online ordering system. We have updated it with new crops, new photos, more detailed crop descriptions, and links to additional information about each crop from the seed companies we work with. We hope to have the online storefront open by January 10th. The web address for the online storefront is: You can also get there by going to our farm website and from there follow the link to the online store. If you would prefer a paper copy of the order form, please let us know and we will send you one! We will take orders until March 20th. We have a limited number of plants we can grow in our four greenhouses, so please order early to make sure you get the items you would like. When you place an order, please pick a date and time (morning or afternoon) to pick up your plants - we will be open May 24th to May 30th.

The biggest change this year is that for the first time in 35 years we will not being using the wonderful potting soil from Ideal Compost. Mike, Anna, and Isaac are focusing more on compost and will not be able to provide us with potting soil. We will miss seeing them so often and want to say thank you for such great friendship. They got us started with the importance of a compost-based potting soil. To us, it is the heart of growing healthy organic seedlings. The nearest top quality certified organic compost-based potting soil is in Montpelier, Vermont at Vermont Compost Company. We are buying our potting soil from them this year. They have been at this for several decades and we know their potting soil will be great and your plants will be strong and healthy. Our seedlings will continue to be certified by the NH Department of Agriculture.

As always, thanks and gratitude to our friend Steve Wishengrad for maintaining our website, and our wonderful crew in the greenhouse (Ellie, Tod, Beth, Melina, Carly, and Randy) who bring joy to the work of growing plants. Without them we could not grow your plants and have them all organized for you when you come for plant pickup.

If you have any questions, please give us a call at 603-529-2170, send us a note, or write to us at Please take care! We look forward to seeing you in May!

Thank you,

Dave and Linda
