Maple Syrup 2018

This year was a record setting year! We tapped out the earliest we ever have on February 18th. The 300 taps produced enough sap to make a record breaking 68 gallons (previous record was 60)! With this sweet season now over we are still waiting for the rest of the snow to melt so we…

Colorful Harvest and Plentiful Helping Hands

This summer we have been blessed, not only by a bountiful, colorful harvest, but also by many helping, willing hands to pick and package the Abundance! Thank you to all who have contributed their time to harvesting, sorting, dividing and packaging the produce! Distribution would not have been possible with out your help!

New Pavilion on the Acres

Abundance Acres now has a new pavilion which overlooks a beautiful meadow just down the hill from the farm. Two brand new cabins also surround this field. Thanks to the hard work and contributions of several board members and community members the pavilion was recently finished. This is a dream four years in the dreaming!…

Evening Rainbow over the Farm

A perk of Abundance Acres being on an east facing hill are the spectacular evening rainbows. Here is one from this evening taken from the farmhouse.

First Distribution 2017

The summer distribution season of 2017 is finally here! We were awakened this morning by beautiful sunshine and blue skies. What a great way to start off the season especially due to the fact that the past few weeks have been filled with torrential and non stop rain. Even though mud boots were still a…

Mud-luscious

In Just – by E.E. Cummings in Just- spring     when the world is mud – luscious the little lame balloonman whistles far and wee and eddieandbill come running from marbles and piracies and it’s spring when the world is puddle-wonderful the queer old balloonman whistles far and wee and bettyandisbel come dancing from hop-scotch and…

Last of the Sugaring

Today wrapped up the last of the maple sugar collecting for the season. Although it was a strange year weather-wise, it has been a record one for the amount of syrup we made. Even though the sap is still running we had the help and beautiful weather to make pulling the buckets and taps a…

Spring Seedlings Emerge from the Basement!

For the past three years of starting our own seedlings  for the farm, we have graduated from the basement to a new “sunroom” fully equipped with potting bench, warming racks, grow lights, running water, and heat! It is quite an upgrade, which we hope will be reflected in the quality of our seedlings. It is certainly easier…

At Long Last…

We have finally completed the greenhouse we started building this spring through a grant from the NRCS! Building this large of a project could not have been done without many hands… leveling the land, building the frame, putting the arches in place and covering with plastic. It looks like the project was completed just in…

Sweet Season (Part II)

The sugaring season has wrapped up so this is a recap. It turned into an over-flowing year as we ran out of wood, ambition and the sap is still running! Interestingly the syrup went from light to dark and then began lightening again! Lots of hands made quick work of collecting, boiling, pulling the taps,…

A Day in a Minute

Today we dug up and moved 100ft of Rhubarb to a new location and expanded the strawberries into the empty Rhubarb beds. Should be some good Strawberry Rhubarb pie growing next year!

Lao Garden

Ever since our time in Laos we’ve craved good Lao ingredients to authenticate various dishes. In the northeast, however, these tropical plants are slow in growing. It has taken most of the summer, but with the help of the greenhouse we have some crops to show for the effort. Enjoy a this gallery displaying a…
