Tomato Trivia …

  If you’re anything like me – and, let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to be (don’t answer that) – then you love a good, flavor-packed, vine ripened, locally-grown tomato. Those imported supermarket super models, whose tomato qualities are only skin deep, just don’t make the grade. So I’m more than a little excited to […]

Wee’rrrre Baaaaack!!!!

Well, it’s been quite an off season up here at the Dimond Hill Farm, but just when it seemed like Jane and Pam and the crew just couldn’t take another game of Parcheesi around the kitchen table (or another one of Jane’s room-painting fits), the weather broke enough to allow the gang to get back […]

Cooking With Kristina: Grilled Pizza

I don’t know about you guys, but around this time of the summer I’m looking for something different to throw on the barbecue grill. So when I heard that Kristina was demonstrating grilled pizza in the barn, I was all in. Kristina is the official Diamond Hill Farm culinary adviser, and her knack for using seasonal […]

The Battle of Dimond Hill

In a letter to his wife, Abigail, shortly after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, John Adams wrote that the Fourth of July each year “ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations …” A fine sentiment, of course, and the kind of call to […]

Seasonal Eating: Garlic Scapes A First Taste of Goodness to Come

Those who knows me, know I like garlic. (Even those who pass within ten feet of me likely know it.) So at this time of year the garlic plants enjoy teasing me with their long, pointed leaves waving in the breeze, hinting at the growing bulb of goodness buried beneath. And just when I think […]

We’re Having a Pizza Party!

  Now I ask you, what’s more New England than a 120-year-old barn smelling of pizza? Well, if you have any doubt, then you need to come up to the Dimond Hill Farm on Thursday and find out for yourself. Pizza and produce … I bet that’s a combination even Abbot Presby wouldn’t have envisioned. […]

Weather Related …

  A fellow farmer from a bit north of us was in the barn the other day grumbling about the cool spring temperatures. Like most farmers and old timers who show up to commiserate with Jane from time to time, one of the opening salvo of the conversation tends to be “How’s the weather over […]
