Kyle's Farm Update: Harvesting news & John is on PBS

Halloween is fast approaching, and we have all you need to finish up the fall decorating. We had an excellent fall crop of pumpkins and gourds which the field crew worked very hard to get picked and under cover before the recent cold nights.

Thanks to the crew, not only do we have decorative pumpkins, we have an excellent yield of butternut, acorn, delicata, and kabocha squash! During these cold days, we have been enjoying warm butternut soups from our farm kitchen.

We’ve been busy trying to wrap up the late season storage harvest of beets, carrots, potatoes, and turnips. Just last week we harvested a few thousand pounds of red, white, Yukon gold, and fingerling potatoes.

Also, the sweet potatoes are dug, cured, and ready to eat! Along with harvesting all of the root crops, we are still harvesting some of our covered greens, and we are even planting greens in our high tunnels to overwinter for spring harvest.

If you are looking for recipe ideas for all of these storage crops, take a look at our recipe page. Or you could watch John talk about growing pumpkins here on the farm and Vivian Howard explaining a traditional pumpkin pie recipe on Autumnwatch New England on PBS. The segment featuring John starts at minute 31 of episode 3.

We’re open seven days a week through December 31st, except for Thanksgiving and Christmas, so stop on in!
