They’re Alive!

We grow a lot of great stuff on Collopy Family Farm, but one of the things we grow best is weeds. Who knew there were blueberry bushes underneath all those weeds! Gonna keep it up next year, promise!! Just happy that after 3 years of trying to get them established, they’re finally growing.

Back Up and Running

Hey everyone – we’re back up and running and gearing up for Christmas tree sales! Bruce is recovering well from double-hernia surgery and we’ve got a brand new computer after recently suffering a crash.
Looks like we’ll have at least 200+ trees for sale, along with wreaths, kissing balls, delicious meat chickens, jams, jam gift packs and more.

We’ll be open Nov. 28, 29 & 30, and every weekend in December from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Kissing balls and wreaths will be available by November 15th at our Farm Stand.

Our Christmas trees are grown organically and have never been sprayed with any chemicals or pesticides. We shake every tree and you can have it wrapped if you’d like – all this for only $40. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Cheers, Sally & Bruce

Farm Stand and Survey

Thanks to everyone who took the time to fill out our farm survey, we really appreciate it. For those of you who reserved some of our fresh, delicious, organically raised meat chickens, they are available and ready for you to pick up. We roasted one up recently with some friends, it was fabulous! Each chicken comes with a recipe and herbs for seasoning. Please give a call at 802-233-4805 to schedule a pick-up.

Thanks to my “project hubby” for building us this great farm stand. And, thanks to everyone who has stopped by so far to check it out. We’re open on Tuesday and Friday from 2-7pm. Offerings include fresh eggs, homemade bread, delicious strawberry and raspberry jam, fresh veggies, and muffins ready for your breakfast. Scrumptious raspberry/chocolate chip muffins have been featured recently. Depending on availability there could be fresh berries, herbs, pies and more.  Before you know it, I’ll be making wreaths and kissing balls – don’t come too fast Christmas, fall is our favorite time on the pond! Stop by and take a look.

Have a wonderful day all!

Cheers,
Sally & Bruce :)

Happy Summer!

Bruce and I have been hard at work and all is well on the farm. The first batch of meat chickens arrived two weeks ago and are doing well. Raspberries are super healthy and we’re looking forward to a nice crop.  Christmas trees are sprouting out beautiful new growth. Blueberries are going to make it this year, hopefully! Ponies are doing well and will start their training soon. We’re sure that will go smoothly! ha ha

Meat chickens will be available for purchase around July 25th. Local organic strawberry jam and our own organically raised raspberry jam will be available soon. We’ll also be offering organic frozen berry pops.

We look forward to seeing you on the farm this summer!

Cheers,
Sally & Bruce :)

Jail Break

Watching “The Voice” and what to our wondering eyes should appear, two deer, no wait, it’s Cinnamon & Sugar Bear foot loose and fancy free. As they ran across the field Bruce gave a whistle, they returned to their pen as fast as a missile – well, not quite, but for carrots and peppermints they returned pretty quickly. Thank goodness!!

Photos updated – Recipe added

Check out the new photos under the pages of Christmas Photos and Farm Photos! The good news is that we were super busy this Christmas, the bad news is that we didn’t get the chance to take as many photos. Thanks to everyone who took the time to pose for our photo blog. Let me know if you’d like a copy by email.

Under Farm Photos we have a few shots from the In Good Taste foodie event held on January 24th in Saint Albans. We had a great time and want to thank everyone who stopped by our booth.

Under Recipes I’ve added a fabulous roast chicken recipe. One organically raised 4-5 pound chicken from our farm will provide a great meal for two and a big pot of homemade soup with the leftover chicken.

Cheers!
Sally & Bruce :)

In Good Taste Event

WOW – what a night! We participated in the “In Good Taste” foodie event last night at Saint Albans City Hall. What a turnout, a huge success for a first-time event. Our taste tests were freshly cooked organically raised chicken, homemade chicken noodle vegetable soup, and a variety of jams and sauces. We had over 200 people visit our booth and sample our products. It was great to see so many folks who visited us at Christmas and meet many of our customers from the Fairfield Farmers Market On-line (FFMO).

The diversity of the vendors, the professionalism of the event organizers, and the beautiful set-up of the venue made for a very memorable evening. The localvore movement is alive and well in Franklin County. Thanks so much for all your support!

Cheers,
Sally & Bruce :)
