JUNE 2013 WARREN FARM  NEWSLETTER

As we begin June 2013, we would like to update our friends and customers. We currently are harvesting asparagus, spinach, rhubarb, and lettuce. We expect a limited amount of swiss chard to be available soon. We also offer at our farm stand when open maple syrup from Spring Harvest Maple Farm inBarrington, Scott Young’s nature prints, and our own handmade soaps. We are definitely open Tuesdays and Saturdays and will be adding days as the crops allow. We have been slow to plant this spring for various reasons so our sugar snap peas, cukes, squashs, tomatoes and sweet corn will be delayed. Our raspberries are weak ( due to last years loss of the 2012 crop) and we expect a very small crop for us to possibly offer picked raspberries but doubt that the crop will be sufficient for pick your own.

     We are pleased that we have finished our current Early Successional Habitat Improvement project. We hope this will aid the critters, big and small for many years.

    On the farm sale front, we have agreed to terms with a potential buyer and are going through the process. This takes time and with a purchase of this magnitude there are many hoops. We will keep you informed as we go through this process and let you know when it becomes certain. Due to this, we are cleaning out buildings, attics, cellar, and house. We are offering many items for sale at our farm stand. After 67 yrs in the same house, our family has accumulated many interesting items. Please feel free to browse whenever we are open. Most of the farm equipment is spoken for as the potential buyers have interest is continuing our farming tradition. They will be planning to expand the farming operations.

     Please remember that we are currently still here and the farm will be continuing even if sold. The rumor mill was not kind to us during last years Christmas season ( thank goodness google provided many new customers) as many friends and customers were told that we no longer were open (untrue). If there is any significant news we will make sure it is made public through our website and emails.

Bird Walk on the Warren Farm

 

Treat mom to an early bird walk - or let her sleep in while you go! At 7 AM on Mother's Day, May 12, the Barrington Conservation Commission and Natural Heritage Committee invite you to come for a bird walk on the Warren Farm.

Naturalist and bird expert Scott Young will lead us.  This is prime time for both migrants and local birds in their breeding season, and the wide variety of habitats on the Warren Farm is ideal for seeing many species - Scott has documented some 150 species on the property in the last several years!  The farm property has been extensively managed for wildlife habitat in the last several years, and it is really paying off.

The number of birds we'll see is of course weather dependent, but the only guarantee is if you don't come and look, you won't see anything.

Bring a pair of binoculars and a bird book if you can.  Ticks will be out, so take necessary precautions.  

The Warren Farm is at the end ofWarren Road, which is about two miles west of theLee Traffic Circleon Route 4.
