The Haunting of Dimond Hill

The Haunting of Dimond Hill

Gather round the hearth my friends and warm yourselves by the fire, safe from the wind and the rain … but not, perhaps, from the chill that’s likely to tickle your spine as I tell you a tale of the ghosts of Dimond Hill. You see, the Dimond Hill Farm seems to sit at a […]

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.

Cow Crossing

For more than a decade now, lawmakers have been debating about whether or not to expand gambling in the state.

DHF Garlic Scapes

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!

Farm Stand Pizza

  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. […]
