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 […]

Santa Says the Best Christmas Trees are in the Barn

The Holiday Season is here once again and it’s time to start talking turkey and thinking about what the heck to buy old Uncle Elmer that will top that pair of plaid support stockings you gave him last year. It’s also time to embark on that most glorious of all holiday expeditions … the search […]

Seeing Green at Dimond Hill

It’s been a spell since my last posting, and with all those cards, letters and comments Jane received about my blog writing talents last season … I’m lucky she’s lettin’ me post now. I promised Jane I’d be more focused and get right to the point this season, so here goes: We’ve got good news […]

So, You Think You Want a Garden …

Nothing is quite as Norman Rockwell as the backyard garden we picture in our mind’s eye each spring … and nothing is quite as Stephen King as that overgrown patch of weeds that we mow around all summer in hopes of wrestling enough food away from the aphids and groundhogs to harvest a decent sized […]

Start Your Christmas Shopping on Dimond Hill

One of my favorite Christmas Carols is the old standard: Oh Christmas Tree. Every time I hear it on the radio or record player I perk up a bit and imagine the colorfully decorated and brightly lit trees that became the centerpiece of our holiday celebrations. Trouble is, I never seem to remember the words […]

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 […]

Playing in the Pumpkin Patch …

Remember back when dad would pile the family into the station wagon and motor off down one country lane or another, all the time reminiscing about the way things used to be … back when people were nicer, kids were more polite and he had more hair. Ah, those were the days when we could […]

Starting the Fall with a Bit of Summer

It is going to be a BEEEAA-utiful weekend up here in New Hampshire, with a little bit of something for everyone who’s able to operate outside of a WiFi signal. The first blush of fall color is breaking through, chilly mornings – wrapped in fog and wood smoke – quickly burn off to bright sunshine […]

Honey Crystals: Natural Goodness or Funky Fermentation …

Honey is just about as good as it gets when you’re looking for something to dress up a cup of tea or a piece of bread and butter. Most scholars figure that honey predates written history where four-thousand-year-old Babylonian cuneiform writings describe it being used as currency and a way to pay tribute to both kings […]
