This Is What Winter’s For

Happy New Year’s eve!

It’s snowy and magical up here at the farm — the white outside contrasted by the green in our seedling room and greenhouse.

Over the past 7 years of running Good Heart, I’ve come to more deeply understand that this is winter’s gift: the outside quiet allowing for growth inside.  Be it literal or metaphorical, winter allows us time to breathe, settle, and rest so we may burst out again come spring and summer.  

We hope you have time to rest today and tomorrow. 

At the very least, a moment — despite slippery roads or the fast pace of work — to look out and see the beauty in the snow and slowness of this season.

Along with skiing, snowshoeing, novels and movies, winter is for cooking. 

Soups, stews and roasts; casseroles and carrot cakes; winter salads topped with apples and cranberries.  Returning to the comfort of the kitchen and homemade meals.

The Winter Share begins next week: Monday, January 6th in Montpelier and Thursday, January 9th in Worcester.

We’re looking forward to returning to the weekly rhythm of the farm share, and we’d love to feed you this season. 

If you’d like a weekly harvest of local organic greens, roots, alliums, and more, sign up for a Winter Share today.

You can choose from small, regular, or family-sized shares. 

As part of our mission to make local food accessible, we accept EBT/SNAP payments, and offer payment plans for the Winter Share.

We wish you a restful and nourishing New Year, and we hope to see you soon!

In Good Heart,
Kate & Edge
