Read these wonder, short, sweet stories about our farms.
Thank you to Peggy Barton for her creative short stories.
Long Life Farm
Here in Hopkinton, run by the ever-intrepid Laura Davis and Donald Sutherland. A CSA farm, lazy-shares available, no work required! Always organic, now certified to prove.
Produce runs the gamut, king-kale, radishes, beets, luscious heirloom tomatoes, "a lot of vegetables!" quote spokesdaughters Mei and Li, who "sort of work at the farm". And what makes the vegetables so special? As the girls endorse- "They taste good!"
May they live long and prosper!
Kelly's Family Farm
Dick Kelly’s, to be precise, a local tradition for 77 years, at 146 Milford St. in Upton. Even the wooden display stands are original to yesteryear, just repainted, Kelly-green of course. A cornucopia of fruits and vegetables, using only low toxicity pest- management. The vibrant selection is “pretty good”, as understated by Alex Martin and Molly King, two happy employees. It wouldn’t be Upton without “Kelly’s”.
