Beehive Tour at Prescott Farm

Last weekend I attended a Beehive Tour and Honey Tasting at Prescott Farm in Middletown, RI. It was a hot Indian summer day but Jeff Mello of Aquidneck Honey was enthusiastic and animated in his heavy bee suit as he discussed the life history of honeybees. Aquidneck Honey cares for hives all over Aquidneck Island and […] Read more…

Vermont Wildflower Farm

The Vermont Wildflower Farm is the largest wildflower seed center in the Northeast. Their retail location and public gardens are just down the road from Shelburne Farms, and we stopped by after our tour of the Children’s Farmyard. Vermont Wildflower Farm has refined their custom seed mixes over the 30 years they’ve been in business, and they […] Read more…

Fat Toad Farm

Funnily enough, the VT Cheese Council updated their map during our Vermont Cheese Trail Vacation. Since Fat Toad Farm technically doesn’t make cheese, they are no longer listed. But I am so glad we printed out the old version when we did, because it ended up being my favorite stop of the whole trip, and I wouldn’t […] Read more…

Tomato Day at Casey Farm

Casey Farm is a historic, working farm in Saunderstown, RI. The property is situated on a rolling hill overlooking Narragansett Bay, and driving by this picturesque farm is the highlight of my daily commute. Casey Farm’s Coastal Growers Market was voted one of the top 5 Farmers’ Markets in New England by Yankee Magazine. My friend Kendalyn invited me […] Read more…

The Vermont Cheese Trail Map was created by the Vermont Cheese Council, an entity dedicated to the production and advancement […] Read more…

The wild side of Bristol

Bristol, RI is probably most famous for being home to the oldest continuous Independence Day Celebration in the country. Seriously, people start yelling “Happy Fourth (or Fowth depending on how long you’ve lived in RI for)” to each other in early June.  The whole two weeks leading up to the parade is slightly chaotic mix of free outdoor […] Read more…

Mt. Hope Farm, Bristol, RI

It’s pretty crazy that I’m just writing about Mt. Hope Farm now (other than quick Moonwalk mentions), considering I go there at least once a week. I think I’ve just been intimidated by the idea of trying to capture all the parts of it that make it so special. It’s my favorite place to watch […] Read more…

Wreath Making at Faella Farm

A friend signed me up for a wreath making workshop held at Faella Farm in Peace Dale, RI yesterday. I woke up early and drove over in the sunny cold, listening to Christmas music and trying to get into the spirit. When I arrived, the other participants were already cutting their greens and chatting affably. The […] Read more…
