2018 Season Recap

With November knocking, and a nor’easter blowing outside, I find I finally have a moment to sit down and share the ups and downs of the past season here at Eddy Farm. As a farmer friend of ours recently said, 2018 was hot, weedy, and we won’t be sorry to see it go, but we must celebrate the bad along with the good. Despite the summer’s discomforts, we managed to have one of our best seasons yet, and we are so grateful to all of our loyal customers for making that possible.

Growing just about anything this year was a challenge, but we were very happy to bring back a customer favorite, fresh potatoes, for 2018 as well as offering plenty of our farm grown garlic, tomatoes, peppers, kale, chard, and herbs. It was a particularly banner year for kale, so you lucked out if you’re a fan of our greens!

Our farm stand staff was as always a delight to work with, and we continue to be grateful for the help of so many kind, thoughtful, polite young people.

In addition to the farm stand, our business grew significantly this season as Haley and her team took on double the amount of weddings as last year. We grew many more flowers (also chemical free) and helped 35 couples celebrate with local beauty on their wedding day. We also sold flowers through the farm stand and through a Spring subscription as well as wholesale to many other floral designers in the state, harvesting thousands upon thousands of stems.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to our wonderful customers and staff who not only support our business but also our family, our staff, and small farms throughout the region. Have a wonderful, productive, restful winter!
