About Mary, Plant Manager

From my pictures you can guess I live on a farm. We raise vegetables which we sell off the farm, through our Fields to Meals (FTM), at our farm stand and at a produce auction. I am the 'plant manager'.

Here are some of the highlights of what is going on at the LOCK FARM.

Rosie makes herself comfortable in the rhubarb patch while Mary harvests.

The potato plants are above ground
And the green beans are in bloom.

It is not too late to sign up for the LOCK FARM’s Fields to Meals.

The Promise of Good Things to Come

The strawberry patch at the Lock Farm has been uncovered from its winter protection. The plants and blossoms look great and are the beginnings of a delicious berry crop.

These strawberries will be part of the Lock Farm’s FIELDS TO MEALS program. They may also be available in the farm’s THURSDAY MARKET and ON THE FARM.

Lock Farm’s New Helper

Introducing Rosie. She came to us toward the end of last season and has become a charming addition to the Lock Farm’s staff. Her duties include:

mouse patrol

high tunnel management

and supervisor of R&R.

Rosie wants you to know that Lock Farm’s FTM applications are now available. Just put your paw on Fields to Meals.

Tomatoes and Beets

What do tomatoes and beets have in common?

Both are red

Both are great foods for heart health.

Both are available (in season) at the Lock Farm through our

Fields to Meals CSA

Thursday Market

and at the farm.

Happy Valentines Day!

Little Pup Looks Over the Tomato Plants

It may be cold, bitter cold outside, but in the high tunnel it is nice and warm. Little Pup likes to pass inspection every now and then. What she really looks for in the high tunnel are the mice that come inside to get warm… she has yet to catch one.
