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!

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.
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.

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