New Field Farm's Online Market:  Of Cabbages and Copra onions


We’ve added red and green cabbage this week, as well as Copra onions, a strong cooking onion that stores well.

The scallions are from the fourth and last planting so they’re much smaller than the recent large ones from the third planting.

We have a little arugula from a small planting that went into some extra space in the hoophouse. More plantings are on the way.

Potatoes have come down in price a bit this week. If you’ve gotten red potatoes recently you might wonder why some of them aren’t so red. The variety Dark Red Norlands has always done that as the harvest season progresses. I’m not sure why. It affects appearance, but not the quality of the potato.

Lacinato kale will probably come and go in availability. It’s generally slow-growing and, like all the other brassicas (cabbage, broccoli etc.), is planted in the lowest section of the field which means that this year it’s roots have been wet for much of the season. This contributes to slow growth. Today’s heavy rains aren’t helping! If I could have predicted the weather I would have planted them higher up (useless thought number 20 million and 2).

Thank you as ever for your orders.

This year, we are excited to announce that we are…

Going Back To School with State Of The Plate!!! At Graham High School!!! We are taking you to another part of the county, and we chose Graham High School because this is going to be the location for….drumroll…after years and years and years of working on a shared commercial kitchen, and grant after grant after grant…we FINALLY were awarded a grant, AND, have a physical location!!! And, if you come to State Of The Plate, you will get to tour the kitchen, have an AMAZING local lunch prepared by vendors, meet local producers, who will be set up, in a local market setting, with their products, you will get to go back to school through the cafeteria line, and you will be treated to speakers who will be talking about the commercial kitchen!! Youth speakers who our up and coming producers/influencers!! And, we will also have a quick visit with this market, the umbrella of all the markets, to show the ease of it, the hopes of it, and how it all works, together, with the A, B, C’s of the commercial kitchen, the local foods council, the Graham staff/facility, the chamber, and you!! The community!!

Get your tickets, now, through the chamber office!!
