Fall for us cause we're falling for you

Posted 9/25/2019 1:44pm by Joel Smith.

First off let me say thanks.  Thanks for choosing us, working with us, supporting small farms and sustainable agriculture.  You've won us over and we've fallen for you.  Without you our loyal customers, customers who support small business and unique enterprise in all of it's forms, none of us would be what we are.

David will be away for this next week so please contact me directly at our new email starlightgardendurhamct@gmail.com

Yes fall it's a beautiful time of year.  Don't get me wrong there are truly few things I love more than a beautiful summer day.  However, with the passage of time and my hands in the dirt, perspectives change.  Sometimes in the early morning sun some of the late summer sown brassicas harvested in the fall compete with those summer days.

One tough thing about fall is that the Tomatoes got to go. Every day more plants are pulled from the ground and added to our compost pile.  The soil is prepped and we begin the journey to fall and winter plantings.  It's heart breaking but as inevitable as the changing seasons.  We will do our best to accommodate orders.

Orders in by 8a.m. Thursday for 2p.m. pick up out front.

If you're ordering or picking up for the first time at the farm please reach out to us with any questions or if you'd like to check the place out.

Remember please email me directly at our new address starlightgardensdurhamct@gmail.com
