New Harmony Farm LLC, Greater Newburyport’s local certified organic and bionutrient-dense grower, is hosting a free introductory lecture by Dan Kittredge, executive director of the Bionutrient Food Association on the principles of biological farming and growing nutrient dense food. By balancing soil minerals and nurturing vital soil biology, plants are able to grow into more productive, nutrient-dense and pest-resistant crops. The lecture will be held on September 10, at 7pm at our barn at 186 High Road, Newbury.
For those interested in applying these highly successful practices, New Harmony Farm, LLC will be hosting two 1-day workshops on High BioNutrient Dense Crop Production taught by Dan Kittredge and New Harmony’s Erin Stack, with the first part of the workshop on Saturday September 27, 9:30 AM – 4:30 PM and the second half of the workshop in early spring of 2015.

With Labor Day Weekend upon us, we bid adieu to Summer and begin to turn toward the brisk days of autumn and the final hurrah of our growing season. Late fall harvest at New Harmony will include a lovely variety of cool weather crops: vibrant lettuce, kale, spinach, and many other greens, frost kissed Brussel Sprouts, many varieties of potatoes, and delicious root vegetables pulled fresh from the ground with wonderful sugar contents that come as the root crops build up their nutrients for winter. We are beginning to cure our bumper crop of garlic and onions and in a few weeks we will begin to harvest and cure our wide variety of heirloom winter squashes. Wether you are planning to extend you CSA harvest season with us or you want to try our CSA to see if it is a good fit for you, now is the time to join.
