The Farm

We are residents of Hidden Springs planning for the agricultural areas in the community. Our focus for 2016 is on row crops, perennials, pumpkin patch, and a corn maze. We want to bring back the vitality, production, and sustainable features of the agriculture that allowed this community to exist and thrive. The farm draws people to our community. It is a source of pride and sets Hidden Springs apart from other developments, it is a place of wonder for our children, a space for nature and people to coexist harmoniously.

The exciting farm news of the day is that Sharon, Laurel and crew harvested our 2019 garlic last night.  Thanks to all who helped with this big job.  The garlic is spread out on the drying tables in the shed.  Please do not disturb the garlic, we will be distributing shares later in the month once the garlic is ready.

We will be working on Friday from 8-10:00 AM.

The farm is on summer schedule:  7-9:00 PM on Mondays and 8-10:00 AM on Fridays.  We will be working this Friday, July 5th.
 
Lisa asks me to remind you that all farmers need to have a current, 2019, waiver on file with the town office.  Waivers are available in the top left drawer at the farm and at the HSTA Office.  You can return the completed waiver to the office during office hours or leave it in the HSTA mail box next to the office door.
 
Several of you asked for the rhubarb syrup recipe I used to make the rhubarb “soda” we tried last night.
 
4 cups washed and chopped rhubarb ( I started with 2” pieces.)
 
1 1/2 cups water
 
1 /1/2 cups granulated sugar
 
Place all of the above in a sauce pan, simmer about 20 minutes or until the rhubarb disintegrates.  Let it cool a bit, pour it through a strainer.  The syrup can be used as an ice cream topping, on pancakes or waffles or in  mixed drinks.  If you want to make rhubarb soda add it to some sparkling water.
