April was a busy month on the farm as we prepped fields (when it was dry enough!), planted and seeded, filled our greenhouses to bursting, and did some major cleaning and organizing. Our small but stellar April crew of Sarah, Brian and Rebecca have made sure we are on good footing for the start of the season. Much of their hard work is beginning to come to fruition as we open the store for the 2019 season on Tuesday, May 7th! It has been a chilly spring, so asparagus has been very slow growing, but with slightly warmer temps in the forecast we expect to have limited amounts available next week. We will also have spinach, scallions, parsley seedlings, mushrooms from Fat Moon Farm in Chelmsford, honey from Double B Honey’s hives at Barrett’s Mill, and the very first crop of Barrett’s Mill Farm tulips! By the end of the week we will hopefully also have microgreens and pea shoots.
The farm stand will be self-serve for the first few weeks, accepting cash, checks or Barrett’s Bucks.
For cash purchases, please bring exact change.
For check purchases, please make checks out to Barrett’s Mill Farm.
For Barrett’s Bucks purchases, fill out the provided card with your name and amount purchased, and put it in our payment box. We will tally your purchases until the farm store is staffed, at which point we will have the Barrett's Bucks book in the store each day.
The farm store will be staffed the week of May 28th, and the CSA will begin June 11th. If you have any questions or you aren't sure what your Barrett's Bucks balance is, feel free to send Melissa an email at email@example.com.
