Lovin this fresh new sign Bean made for our farm entrance.
There was an intense amount of asparagus out there today. #111lbs!
Just have to wait for them to get a liiiittle bit bigger...
and we’re back! Pulling fresh veg out of the ground and helping feed our community. There is hope.
Ever wonder what vegetable farmers do in the winter? Check out the latest article and in @jctmag www.junctionmagazine.com/a-winters-bounty. Thanks @islorton for stopping by and taking an interest in our “off” season.
I guess we’re all craving a little more green these days. #root5farm
New batch of kimchi is going out today! Find it @norwich.farmers.market and @chapmans.store.vermont
We’re preparing for tommorow’s market and we’re excited to share our new turmeric fire cider and rosemary sea salt with you. These will make great holiday gifts! Plus we’ll have our sweet spinach, carrots, radishes, kimchi, kraut, and gorgeous cabbages. See you @norwich.farmers.market 9-1pm at Tracy Hall on Saturday. #shoplocal #root5farm
Yup, moved the potting shed today. Making the greenhouse bigger, plus we can use the old potting shed to park a tractor. #oythatsgood #reusereducerecycle #nicehelmet
We’ve been waiting for this moment to harvest this incredible, hardy, sweet crop of spinach. After a bitter cold start to November, this is one of the last remaining crops left to harvest on the farm. It’s the only vegetable we know of that can survive five consecutive nights in the single digits, uncovered, and still look this great! We’re thrilled to share this sweet treat with our CSA Members for their Thanksgiving shares next week, and we’ll bring it to @norwich.farmers.market this Saturday!
We’re ready for the first winter market tomorrow. Find us at Tracy Hall from 9-1pm Saturday @norwich.farmers.market
We’ve been working long hours and getting creative with storage space to bring in as much cabbage as we can fit in our bins, in our barns, and in our sauerkraut barrels before the deep freeze tonight. Huge heartfelt thanks goes out to our incredible crew for working overtime with us in the cold and the snain and shredding cabbage like no other. This crew is crushing it so stinking hard. #shredding
Final outdoor market of the season! Deepest gratitude to our faithful customers who made this an amazing season. See you at the indoor market at Tracy Halls in two weeks. @norwichfarmersmarket
Fall storage carrots are coming in sweet, snappy, abundant, and gorgeous. They’re a joy to harvest, especially when the sun is shining. We’re all super duper proud of this crop.
We grew cabbages the size of a 3 year old! It’s almost kraut making time!
