This time of year is garlic harvesting for Wild Miller Gardens in Lee. Garlic is one of their main and favorite crops. And, Newmarket Farmers Market patrons will be offered this garlic along with pastured pork, eggs, and fresh produce every Saturday from 9 to 1 in the parking lot between the Stone Church and the Stone School.
Joel and Annalisa Miller were the first vendor to commit and grace the Newmarket Farmers' Market in its first season last year. Their passion and knowledge of their food products is a main draw to the market.
Wild Miller Gardens is located on the historic Randall Farm in Lee. The Randall Farm is a 1700s homestead that had remained with the same family until 2003. The Cox family of the adjacent farm, Tuckaway Farm, saved this farm from development by putting most of the land under a conservation easement. Presently, four generations of family are living on this land working and dreaming alongside each other, say the Millers. The Randall Farm has not been worked in over 40 years. They are excited to care for the soils again and bring the whole working farm back to life.
The Millers are offering a Farmers Market Discount Program or CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). They offer an opportunity to purchase credit for their produce, eggs, pork, fruit and garlic to be spent at the farmer's market. So an up front fee of $300 is paid at the beginning of the summer season and $330 credit is available to spend on their fresh products at the farmers' market.
