CSA: Half Pint Farm
Mara & Spencer Welton
Welcome to the 2014 farming season of the Half Pint Farm Food Club! This is our 12th farming season, and 7th year of our farm share program! We created our farm in 2003 because we believed that there could be a model of sustainable farming that champions a small and successful family operation on a small plot of land, with small infrastructure and a small workforce. We exercise this passion growing 400+ varieties of specialty and baby vegetables on our 2 acres in Burlington’s Intervale with our two miniature dachshunds, Mr. Smeems & Bullet. We also sell to area restaurants, grocers, & at the Burlington & Slow Food Farmers’ Markets.
Our 2013 season was an exercise in trust. Even though we flooded in early July, we pushed forward and trusted our instincts and plans – this ensured a successful year, despite the flooding. We are happy to learn that we are resilient, adaptive, and our plants are strong – they just want to thrive in our short summer. 2013 was our most successful year to date!
Here are some of what you can expect to receive in your share in 2014! Pick-your-own – cut flower garden and culinary herb garden! Microgreens – spicy herbs & greens of intense color & texture! Beans – perfect colorful haricot vert, romano & shell beans! Carrots – heirloom and baby (yellow, red, orange, purple & white)! Tomatoes – incredibly sweet cherries, heirlooms & romas! 75 varieties! Onions – colorful cipollini, pearls, scallions, torpedos and shallots! Potatoes – colorful fingerlings and baby potatoes all season long! Peppers – padrones, spanish, new mexican, italian, paprikas, hot! Salad Mix – salad greens, baby & mini head lettuces! Chicories – specialty frisees, radicchios, escaroles & dandelions!
