Bee Thankful Farm at Newmarket Farmers' Market Tomorrow 4/17

Bee Thankful Farm will be present at the Newmarket Farmers' Market at the Stone Church tomorrow, Saturday April 17th offering fresh greens to market goers.

Nick Karakoudas is the farmer and his Bee Thankful Farm is located in Deerfield.  He uses a high tunnel (a solely-solar greenhouse) now in full production mode, enabling them to offer longer growing seasons. Careful crop selection, planting dates, and crop protection within the tunnel are required to keep plants alive and growing out of season.   Check out the crops grown at Bee Thankful Farm here.
They are currently in the process of putting in an orchard for dwarf apple, peach and pear trees. They come into production quickly. Another field is being planted to blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. A chicken coop is still in the works.  Free-ranging chickens will be providing farm fresh eggs.

Bee Thankful Farm offers CSA shares.  Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) provides a direct link between a local farmer and citizens who are interested in purchasing a regular supply of fresh produce.
"Each season, members purchase a share of the crops before they are planted. Think of it as a subscription. This allows the farmer to pay for growing expenses in advance, making the whole endeavor financially possible for him in today’s economy.  Each week, CSA members are assured of receiving an equal share of that week's harvest." 

For more information, email Nick Karakoudas or call (603) 660-0115.
