G-M-Oh My Goodness …

Genetically Modified Organism or “Frankenfood”? This past St. Patrick s Day the wife brought home a head of iceberg lettuce from the local supermarket produce section. March must be a good month for lettuce in Mexico, she reasoned, why else would they have it on sale. Well mister, I’m here to tell you that that head […]

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Gelato?

That’s right, I said Gelato. I know, I know … not quite what we’re used to up here in New England when it comes to cold, creamy treats, but what a way to break tradition. And the best news is that you can judge for yourself on Friday, July 15, from 3-5 pm in the […]

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 […]

Pizza Party Part II … They’re Baaaack!

  Hey, we had so much fun with our first Half Baked Pizza party on June 16 that we’re going to do it all over again! On Wednesday, June 29 from 3 pm to 6 pm the folks from Half Baked Pizza will be back in the barn passing out samples of New England’s best, […]

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 […]

Isn’t It About Time You Become a “Locavore”?

  Up here at the Dimond Hill Farm we’ve been locavores for two hundred years or more. A lot of our friends and customers are locavores, and, over the years, we’ve even recruited a few supermarket diehards into our ranks. So … isn’t it about time you became a locavore? Don’t worry, the conversion is […]

Hey … Won’t Be Long Now!

Spring has sprung up here at the Dimond Hill Farm, with new plantings sprouting in the greenhouses and new products being planted on the Farm Stand shelves. All in preparation for our May 26 farm stand season opener … which can’t come quick enough for me, as the conversation has gotten a bit stale  up […]

How to Care for Your Christmas Tree

For many of us up this way, Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without a brightly-decorated evergreen tree planted smack in the middle of the living room. Ah, how the smell of pine brightens the senses and revives those memories of holidays seasons long past where glass ornaments sparkled (at least until a cat or kid […]
