We still have 2019 CSA shares available for purchase! Read more and sign-up here!
Additional upgrades at the farm, and CSA season is almost here!
As the flowers fall from our stone fruit trees, we see a sign that we are right on track. As a matter of fact, the bloom this spring was a very heavy one, which translates to a very abundant crop in this coming season! The spring rains have made it a challenge to keep ahead of the cultural issues, but the good news is that we are headed in the right direction.
We are working on some upgrades to the farm stand and greenhouse area, the animal area, and the barn. Some of these projects will happen quickly, and others will take some time, so we hope you’ll bear with us through that process. If you visit the farm soon, you will also notice some additional tents that are set-up around the farm, from which we will be running some of our programs.
Our CSA vegetables , which we started as seeds last month, are now being transplanted, and we’re excited to see shares are selling quickly with this year’s improved offering. This program is an important one to us, and we pride ourselves on delivering local, safely farmed, and high-quality produce to our customers.
Whim Dinner Series 2019, and a thank you
Our Whim Dinner Series is back for it’s 9th year, and tickets are now available online! Our farm-to-table dinner series is recognized as the best in the state. We are excited to welcome some new restaurants to our Whim calendar in 2019, in addition to expanding the program by adding an 11th dinner. In that same vein, we’re also looking forward to being involved in this year’s North Andover Restaurant Week.
On a personal note, I want to thank the many people who have patronized us over the years, and those who continue to do so. I have said it many times, but were it not for you, we would not be here. Hardly a day goes by without someone thanking me for Smolak Farms still being here, and expressing their hope that it remains an asset to the community on many levels for years to come.
