Dear Friends of Wealden Farm,
December 2011

All of us at Wealden Farm want to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to all of our patrons for your continued support and business.  As we prepare for winter on the farm, we will be making changes to our day-to-day operations at the Farm Store. 
We have decided to open the store on a semi-monthly basis so that you can stock up on all of your favorite farm fresh staples throughout the winter.  Every other Tuesday, beginning on January 10th, 2012 we will be opening our doors from 11-6pm.  Please remember to stop by during this time to pick up vegetables, fruit, meat grains and eggs.  We will be special ordering Bisson’s dairy products such as raw milk, heavy cream and butter.  If you would like to have any amount of these dairy items, you will need to pre-order them by 5:00pm on the Monday evening prior to a Tuesday pick-up. 
We will be using email addresses to communicate with you throughout the winter, but Laurie Hadlock will continue to post information on the Wealden Farm blog.  We have put together a calendar with the pre-order deadlines, and pick up dates already scheduled in.  The week before a pick-up day, we will send out an inventory list of items we have in stock and their prices.  This way you will be able to plan meals and make the most of your Wealden shopping trip. 
Wealden Farm has had a banner year for farm stand sales, met quite a few new customers, and have started doing business with more small farms in the area.  We are able to employ four full time people from May-December.  We expanded our greenhouse operations and now produce food on five acres.  For 2012 we plan to continue producing our own chemical free vegetable and flower seedlings and food.  John will start planting seeds in the wood fired greenhouses in February.  Until then we will be keeping the home fires burning and welcoming our new baby, due very soon! You, our customers, make all of this possible—Thank You! We look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

Warmest Regards and Happy Holidays!
John Schwenk & Martha Putnam,
And the entire crew at Wealden Farm
