Local Food in Winter

Here in New England, I’ve found it’s difficult to continue to support local agriculture in winter.  The majority of farm stands (including my family’s) and farmer’s markets shut down until spring.  I’m curious to learn how others eat locally during the off-season, if you’re not fortunate enough to live in a climate where’s there’s year-round food.  Please take the survey below!

You can vote more than once, so please do if more than one option applies!

A Glimpse of Farm Life

Today’s guest post comes from my dear friend Jena of Married to the Farm.

True friends helping so us girls could get off the wagon for awhile

A real heavy duty tractor, no frills

My husband, working on the tractor that pays the bills

A beautiful sight at the end of a long day

One of Brian’s best investments, our baler

A close up of our big tractor.  No cab or A/C here.

The local fairgrounds, all cleared out for the year

Back at the farm Pooh Bear says hello

Fall is coming but the dogs don’t mind!

Jena went from being a country girl to a farm wife when she met and married her husband Brian.  Since then she has learned to put up most of their food, keep the books, raise all kinds of animals and pitch in wherever an extra hand is needed.  She writes about all that and more at her blog Married to the Farm.

Our First Family Hayride

This isn’t a guest post, I’m actually writing a post myself!!!

It wasn’t really hayride season yet, but I knew if we showed up at the farm on Saturday that we could convince someone to hook up a wagon, throw on some bales of hay and give Joshua his first ride.  And that’s exactly what happened.

The view of the farm from the woods

Heading into the covered bridge; my brother Jonathan’s driving

The river that borders the farm

Ed looks out into the woods

My dad looks into the apple orchard

A stop in the pumpkin patch. Joshua was sleepy, so we’ll have to do more pumpkin pictures later!
