I am not a writer, but here it goes...
I've been working for the Holbrooks for about four years now and I couldn't ask for better people to be with. To say they are my "employers" does not even come close to what they truly are to me. They are my mentors, my friends, my inspiration, and sometimes…they're like my parents. Learning how to farm has not only been about learning how to plant vegetables and flowers or how to take care of animals, but more importantly, it has taught me about community. During my time here, I have made incredible friends, met the most interesting people, and I love every second of it.
I love and appreciate all of our customers and I hope you've all enjoyed your holidays. As many of you know, the winter is usually a time for the farm to rest and prepare for another great season. However, so many of our beloved customers have expressed their interested in the market being open during the winter.
All I can say is…YES!
YES! I am thrilled so many of you want to support small local businesses like ours!
YES! You enjoy fresh produce and healthy eating!
YES!!! I am opening the market this winter!
I will be opening the farm market every WEDNESDAY and SUNDAY from 10-2 starting WED, DEC. 10th. WE ARE OPEN THE WEEK OF DEC. 1-6 (normal business hours). Please keep in mind that products will be limited until we are fully open in the spring. I will have eggs, raw milk, and greens from our greenhouse available.
I will also be at:
- Sugar & Olives in Norwalk every FRIDAY from 3-7PM (21 1/2 Lois ST, Norwalk, CT)
- Westport Farmers Market every THIRD SATURDAY (Starting DEC. 6th) from 10-2PM (7 Sylvan Lane, Westport, CT)
If you haven't shopped at the Westport Farmer's Market or Sugar & Olives then you've been missing out! There's tons of great food, crafts, farms and artisans that all believe in producing LOCAL, HEALTHY, and WHOLESOME foods for you and your family!
Can't wait to see you!
- Lots of Love!
Jess, Farm Manager, Holbrook Farm
