Jumping into June

rainy

Things are going well at Blue Rock Farm! The plants are growing, our share pick-ups have started and we’re enjoying spending our Saturdays at Eastern Market. We are working hard and trying to keep up with the weeding, harvesting, planting, and other farm tasks, but we make sure to take occasional breaks for hiking, swimming, dancing and other fun.

We Went Plastic Free!

After years of using and throwing away many plastic bags we decided to quit disposable plastics and go for a greener solution. You may have noticed that this year all of our greens are stored in brown wax paper bags.  These wax paper bags are unbleached and non-toxic, making them both ecologically sound and compostable!

First Shares

We are finally in the full swing of things! This weekend marked our third share pick-up of the season. We are enjoying getting to meet our shareholders and hear how they are using their produce! This is a lovely bouquet that one shareholder made with this week’s garlic scapes.

Eastern Market Festival!
We are excited to announce the Eastern Market Festival on June 22nd. A day filled with live music, children’s activities, a skill share and a fun variety of vendors! Hope to see you all there!

Blue Rock Farm has been a part of Eastern Market for three years now. This year has included a big change for the market, as it shifts to being run by the vendors. Due to a lack of grant funding this year we were not able to have a full time market manager. Blue Rock Farm and the other vendors are committed to this market and have working hard to make the market happen. Eastern Market is open on Saturdays from 9am – 2pm.
