We have officially been on the right side of Winter now for a bit, and as I was diligently potting up my tiny tomatoes into larger pots, destined for the ground in a couple of weeks, it occurred to me that – we completely missed Mud Season this year! Ah, mud season – that oh so Vermonty time of year when it seems that Mother Nature hasn’t laughed enough at us… Read More

It’s early Spring, and I can’t help but think about the very first harvest of microgreens, coming up at the end of the week! Microgreens harvesting the first week of every April gets me all sentimental… Read More

2013 – Year of the Veggie!

As we look towards the New Year ahead, we here at Half Pint Farm have been recapping the food trends we took note of all year, and, as we pour ourselves some cleansing green tea in the preamble to a night of celebration, let’s look back on the foodie trends of 2013, which were super inspiring and a lot of fun!

Time for Reflection

It’s snowing outside, my fireplace is lit, my dogs are gently snoring next to me, and the mailman just dropped off another load of seed catalogs. It suddenly occurs to me that I haven’t given my impressions of my 2013 farm season yet, and I re-fill my mug of tea and tuck in to share some thoughts with you on just how wonderful this season left us feeling.

Yulekake, Norwegian Holiday Bread

A gift of yulekake is a gift of love, devotion, and it means that you are special enough to make someone put their kneading muscles on and bake a loaf, braid, or pan of rolls for you. Read More

Summertime and the living is…

We are finally in the swing of summer. Phew! We made it! Thanks for coming along with us on the ride – now, on to a rather stream-of-consciousness treatment of where my mind goes when asked the question, “How is the season going right now?” Read More

Squash Blossom Fritters!

You know you want them. You’ve seen them everywhere. They are as good as they look, and just as addictive as you’ve feared. We are proud to partner with area restaurants in the summer that feature our beautiful blossoms, particularly L’Amante, who has been our longest standing restaurant partner – 11 years and counting! Both Half Pint Farm and L’Amante and us are featured in the new cookbook by Tracey Medeiros called the Vermont Farm Table Cookbook… Read More

We’ve turned the corner!

Spring has officially sprung, we are marching towards the longest day of the year, and light is everywhere! I love when we turn the corner officially from Winter to Spring, when the seasons wrestle with each other for control – wet snowstorm here, warm sunshiny day there; cool cloudy day here, sprouting green things there… even though we all know that Spring will win this rubberband fight… Read More

Silver Chicken!

I eat a lot of Asian food in the winter. I am not sure what it is – perhaps it’s the promise of lots of veggies in the meal, perhaps it’s the super-satisfying hot, sour, salty and sweet tastes on my palate. Whatever it is, there’s something addictive and nourishing about Asian food. Take silver chicken, for example. It’s also known as foil chicken and it has all… Read More

Welcome to the Party!

2013!
Happy New Year! 2012 has the distinction of being our best year to date! Of course, one could load on the significance – it was our tenth season, after 2011 we deserved a great year, etc. The truth is that we had the perfect storm of all the big players: full CSA, best seeds sourced from seed savers, excellent work force, dedicated customers, dry hot summer = delicious… Read More
