New Year’s resolution 2016

Dear Friends of Many Hands Organic Farm,
 
I have made a New Year’s resolution to write to you each month this year. This resolution is in part made possible by the “hiring” (for barter) of Kathleen Geary and Roshni Prabakar to help with Mail Chimp deliveries, website management, and generally with office data management – never my forte. Nina Marcinowski remains as our bookkeeper, also for barter. David Petrovick hired on last summer to manage our machinery for us, on an as needed basis, and both Jack and I are thrilled with the relationship.

April News on the Farm

Tuesday I turn 61 and that challenging state of entering a new decade is past me. Now I have nothing to do but turn up the gas and go full throttle into this wonderful decade when just doing what one feels is right is easier to accomplish - as childrearing, income generation, and the like, are not so pressing (if you have a husband on social security!). And it is raining – almost April showers! I keep wandering outside, not able any more to contently focus on my mountains of desk work. Spring is finally in the air, and I can’t wait.
 
The long

Coming Soon!

Soon you will find these fantastic hoop house winter greens at Living Earth in Worcester-arugula, spinach, and lettuce mix.  February 10!

 

Pork and Beef Stock Available

Looking for exquisite health? Try some of our Many Hands Pork Stock and Beef Stock. We boil the various bones and ligaments with well-water, Celtic Sea Salt, and Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar "with the mother" for about a day on top of the wood stove. Then we pull out the bones and give those to the dogs and chickens and run all the particulate matter through the food processor and add it back to the remaining stock. It will make the best soup imaginable!

We sell it frozen by the quart for $7.50. Contact Julie to puchase either at julie@mhof.net or 978-355-2853.
