Spring in the Greenhouse

Spring has sprung and the greenhouse is full full FULL of plants here at the farm.  The new greenhouse still feels fancy and shiny going into year two of growing in the space.  It weathered all of the snowstorms this winter well, but we’re super excited to get into plant season and out of greenhouse clearing season17990454_1331780613556068_7442128078928866473_o!

If you are ready to get planting in your own gardens and need organically raised vegetable, herb and edible flower seedlings you’re in luck!  We’ll be at several spots in Central and Eastern, MA this spring starting this Friday with the Earthday Celebration at the Ecotarium .  From there we head to Townsend Earth Day  on Saturday.  Next weekend we’ll be at the Framingham Earthday Celebration on Saturday.

After our rounds out east we will head west for the beginning of markets.  The Berkshire Mall Farmer’s Market will be opening Saturday May 6th and the Downtown Pittsfield Farmer’s Market will be starting Saturday May 13th!

Seedling CSA members will be picking up during the month of May.  Every year we are so thankful for the many growers that come back year after year to get their gardens started with our plants, you are a big part of what keeps our farm functioning in the early spring!

We are open on Sundays at the greenhouse from 10-4 in May and June.  It’s always a good idea to call ahead if you are thinking of making the trip to the Hawley hills, so we can put away the attack goose!


After plant season dies down in June we’ll be back to bringing you delicious produce for the summer.  The exciting news for July and August is that we will be offering CERTIFIED ORGANIC BLUEBERRIES at market and bulk quantities by pre-order.  Shoot an email over to windyridgeorganics@gmail.com if you are interested in bulk berries this August for your freezers or your pies (and your bellies).

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone this spring at markets and out and about.

Ready. Set. Grow!!!

  1. Dear Julia So wonderful to see the greenhouse and hope to get to your area to visit some time. And definitely looking forward to May 13. Enjoy the Ecotarium. We lived in Worcester for 20 years and visited there frequently. If you can bring the kids, they will love the polar bears and otters.

    I was wondering if you still have contact with BCAC. A few years ago I had them put in a raised bed in my garden and I would like another one. I’ve tried to reach them, but they never were good at calling back. Any info is helpful. Thanks Margie
