Jump into spring and get a taste of local foods this weekend! We'll be at the Norwich Farmers' Market at Tracy Hall this Saturday from 10-1pm. We'll have some unique early spring offerings- pea shoots, radish sprouts, spinach, sauerkraut and kimchi varieties, carrots, and our own Root 5 Farm honey!
On Sunday from 10-3pm, bring your plate and fork to Flavors of the Valley at Hartford High School in White River Jct. This is the 15th annual celebration of local foods organized by Vital Communities with over 50 farm and food related vendors. We're so excited to be part of this tasting event that brings together Upper Valley chefs, farmers, and specialty food producers. Root 5 Farm will be offering a taste of our sauerkraut varieties and spring greens. We'll be set up next to our friends at NOFA-VT and Shire Beef.
Despite the fresh snow outside, it's warm and cozy in our greenhouse and thousands of seedlings are popping up. We've been planting greens, radishes, and turnips in our high tunnels and our first field planting of peas is scheduled for Friday!
