Stormy weather can't stop the veggies!
Well folks, if you live in New England at the moment, you've been experiencing a bit of a rough-and-tumble end to winter. The winds have been howling here at the farm and we're due for some March snow, but in the warm oasis of the greenhouse we've got thousands of seedlings popping up. It's a great feeling to know that we'll be working out in the fields in a matter of months!
An Uncommon Evening
Earlier this month, Farmer Hannah had the pleasure of attending a pop up dinner created by the ever-talented Michelle Mulford of Uncommon Feasts. The late winter dinner was set in a candle-lit upstairs room of a Brookline church, where a rich menu was served family-style, and featured Buckle Farm pork. Michelle knows how to bring flavors and talent together–she works not only with New England farmers, but also collaborates with talented local designers, craftspeople, photographers and an expert in-house beverage director to orchestrate perfect meals, in an atmosphere full of artful details.

If you are a Boston-area chef, caterer, produce buyer or specialty food producer and would like to work with the Buckle Farm, please drop us a line to see if we can add you to our delivery route! We have a great group of chefs and buyers that we currently work with, and we're excited to meet a few more. Foodies–what menus would you like to see Buckle Farm on?
