Midsummer Farm

We call this time of year, "Second Spring" because it seems like we are repeating a lot of the growing and planting tasks that we were doing in March and April. The plan is to plant the seeds or transplants of cold-loving vegetables and greens now so we can continue harvesting great healthy vegetables into the fall. It is the perfect time to replant the seeds of beets, radishes, cilantro, dill, peas, turnips, mustards, lettuces, greens mixes, spinach, and arugula directly into the ground in your garden. I plan on planting some of these things every other week or so right through the end of August.

Other vegetables need a head start - so I planted trays and trays of broccolis, cauliflowers, collards, kales, chards, lettuces, Asian greens, endives, chicories, and escaroles right around the 4th of July indoors. I've been hardening them off and transplanting them to pots these past couple weeks. And they can go into the ground anytime during mid August - and we'll selling these seedlings at our "Second Spring" Seedling sale on August 9th and 10th from 9 am to 2 pm.

We are also currently accepting registrations for our Building a Sustainable Herbal Apothecary Course- which is an intensive 5 day class that will leave you feeling empowered and able to use herbs responsibly and effectively in your household and life. WE have two sessions of this course planned for this fall:

Located in beautiful Warwick, NY, Midsummer Farm has been practicing organic agriculture for over ten years and has been USDA Certified Organic since 2005. We are proud of our Organic Certification, but we also pride ourselves in the fact that we go above and beyond the USDA standards in many ways. We use Biodynamic Agricultural practices, and we describe our farm as Sustainable and Artisanal. These are two of the most defining factors in our development. Our eggs are also certified by Animal Welfare Approved.

We believe that the quality and style of our growing methods instill our farm products with the most fully complete and healthy nutrients. We work to make our small plot of land as healthy and health-giving as possible. It is a refuge for nature, a place of artisanal cooking and harvesting, and hopefully an inspiration to its visitors. We believe in the farm as a form of art and as a means to nourish body and spirit.

Our goal is to not only provide health-giving local products, but to also empower and educate people both on the importance of sustainability in farming and on the importance of holistic nutrition. As the demand for more local produce grows, we will need more small farms, and a big goal of ours is to let people know that farming sustainably on small acreage is indeed possible and fulfilling.

We enjoy showing people around the farm and talking about sustainable agriculture and holistic eating. We also offer a series of hands-on workshops in the garden. It is our hope that after visiting our farm stand, you will go home with fresh foods, recipes, and inspiration for creating healthful and artisanal meals.

Our fields are diversified, and thus we can offer a tremendous variety of local, seasonal, farm fresh vital products. Everything we produce is grown in an atmosphere of ecological responsibility, healthiness, progressiveness, strong ethical values, and love for life and nature. We use a wide variety of heirloom seeds and our eggs are from a wide variety of heirloom chickens. Our farm stand is piled high with colorful heirloom tomatoes, bunches of delicious lettuce greens of all shapes and sizes, and cartons of multicolored eggs.

Our products are currently available only through our CSA and through email/phone orders.

I drove all the way from Middletown to try some eggs and veggies. I could not find you. I guess you do not have a local farm stand and I can only meet you in Warwick.


Informed that MSF employed 81 chickens and that they all were named, I had to see for myself. There they were, wandering all around the farmyard -very happy chickens indeed.... [more]
