  The time to support local food against federal government sprawl is now. If we don't take action, they will legislate local food right off your plate. 

 Please read this excellent blog piece, by Pat Stewart, one of our grower/venders. :


This is a scary time for those of us who value locally raised food, raising livestock and promoting sustainable agriculture. While the National Animal Identification
System is being retooled, its successor
has yet to be seen. But while we wait
for that word, and while groups and individuals work with the developers to
craft this new program, a larger specter looms on the horizon.

   Here is the rest of it.


Westminster Farmers' Market Report for 11-13-09

Westminster Farmers’ Market Report from Maple Heights Farm

Holiday Markets and Beautiful Little Milk Goats…      

Well, even though our Farmers’ Market has closed, I have yet to have a Friday off!  With delivery day for Mass Local Food last week, Friday was as busy as ever as this online farmers’ market takes over as a winter substitute for so many people.  So, I have this Friday off (first one since early May), but the following Friday, we are back in business again with our pre-Thanksgiving market (on November 20th).

Our Holiday Markets will be at the Westminster DPW barn at 1 Oakmont Ave. 

The Thanksgiving market will be held on Friday, November 20th from 3:00 until 7:00 and will be stocked with all your Thanksgiving needs.  Vegetables, sausage, cheese, meat, cranberries, eggs (hopefully), baked goods, breads, fudge and plenty of items for Christmas shopping!  Ask your vendors about freezing items to keep the as fresh as possible for your Holiday meal!

The Christmas market will be held on Friday, December 11th.  More information to follow as I get it!
