Happy Spring Equinox!
The spring equinox has arrived with little fuss from mother nature. The days are filled with signs of growth and spring peepers can be heard at dusk most nights. Our Farmily (what we affectionately call our employee family), is growing by the day with new people arriving from near and far. The first tomato house and Hydro house is planted, and the greenhouses and garden center are a flurry of activity. We are getting outside, testing new recipes and bringing in new items all around the store. Spring is a chance to start fresh and that's exactly where our energy is focused. It's a great time to stop out to the farm, or follow our activities on our website and Instagram. Come be inspired to garden with our seeds, to cook with our produce or to throw a spring soiree with a great bottle of wine. Happy Spring!  We'll see you on the Farm.
Bartlett's Garden Center Opens Tomorrow!

Noel Diaz from Purity Wines is one of the most passionate wine makers I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. His wines are pure, joyful expressions of fruit. His syrah is bursting of cranberries and tart pomegranate with earthy minerals and a tangy finish. Drink chilled with charcuterie on a sunny day!
Back this year is Domaine Lelievre's Gris de Toul Rose made from organically grown Gamay and Pinot Noir. Grab a bottle or two while it lasts, we only get five cases of this beauty!  Like a juicy mashup of watermelon, blood orange & aromatic white flowers. Spring in a bottle!
Back this year from  highly regarded Meinklang Farm Winery is their bright, zippy, biodynamic white blend from Austria. Full of green apple notes, a touch of stone fruit, and peppery finish, this wine is pure delight!
Hands down my favorite wine of the year. Maybe the last three years! Arnaud Lambert's organically grown cabernet franc is beautifully layered with silky, vibrant textures.  Wild, deep flavors offset by bramble , peppery spice and black tea. Utterly gulpable!

Join us in the hayloft for a transformative experience of learning with Shamanic Herbalist Danica Connors.
Shamanism and Tick Born Disease
"Many of us experience the extremely difficult challenges of tick born diseases. Everything from physical pain to mental anxiety to massive fatigue etc. However, if we simply focus on the negative, we are missing the ability to reframe the experience in order to see the 'gift' that these microbes are presenting to us. Reframing, opens the door to wellness. All illness and imbalances are the body crying out for us to pay attention. And when we do, we have the opportunity to change our lives for the better. From a shamanic standpoint everything has a purpose. And so do tick born diseases. We will discuss the gifts/lessons of right relationship to the environment, our bodies, our work and our spirits. We will also experience a brief shamanic journey to the spirit of the Lyme microbes so that you may hear, from a first hand standpoint, what they are trying to teach you. Due to the personal approach of this talk, it will be restricted to those who have been diagnosed or strongly feel they have a tick born disease. This includes Lyme and any of the Co-Infections such as Babesia, Bartonella, Ehrlichia, Anaplasma etc.”

Kitchen Garden Farm
Farmer Made. No Preservatives. Certified Organic.
Their sriracha is a naturally fermented Asian-style chili sauce made from organic peppers grown on their farm. It has a bright, fruity taste with sharp chili heat and a pronounced garlic flavor. It's delicious on eggs, rice, noodles, in soup, on grilled meats and fish and fried chicken. 

The salsas are handcrafted from organic tomatoes, tomatillos, onions and chilies grown on their farm. We fire-roast the ingredients in small batches to add a subtle smokiness and spicy heat.
Roasted Chili Salsa is a medium-heat tomato based salsa made with fire-roasted Fresno chilies.  Tomatillo Salsa is a spicy tomatillo based salsa made with fire-roasted jalapeños.
Kitchen Garden Farm is located in the heart of the Pioneer Valley, the prime agricultural region of Western Massachusetts. The farm consists of 50 acres of rich river bottom soil with fields on both sides of the Connecticut River, in Sunderland and Whately. 

Caroline and Tim started the farm in 2006 on 1 acre of rented land, and have expanded the farm greatly in recent years. All of the new land they have brought into cultivation had previously been farmed by conventional growers in the area. Kitchen Garden Farm is doing the important work of converting prime agricultural land in their community to Organic production. Caroline and Tim are committed to growing healthy soils by cultivating a wide range of biodiverse crops, improving crop rotation and cover cropping.
