Spring Will Soon Be Sprung!


Our Farmers Are Smiling

Daylight hours are getting longer. The snow falls but quickly melts. The ground is mushy and slushy. Farmers have long since frayed and dog-eared their new seed catalogs. Flower and vegetable seedlings are bursting forth from their indoor or greenhouse containers, stretching toward the life-giving warmth of the sun. Farmers are nervous and fidgeting and smiling, knowing that Spring is coming very soon. With Spring comes the rebirth of all that has been deep, dark and dormant during the long, frigid months of winter. Green shoots above the brown earth are cause for celebration. Buds on the perennial bushes mean success in 2016 for the flower farmer. Newborn calves delight the dairy farmer. Tiny, pink piglets assure the pork farmer that his mortgage will be paid on time. Freely-flowing sap from hundreds or thousands of carefully-tapped maple trees causes purveyors of pure, Maine maple syrup to rejoice.

Spring is a time of rebirth, renewal, rejuvenation, and relief. The growing season has begun again. The independent farmers who sell their goods at Old Squire's Farm Market are anxious to prepare the soil, plant the seeds, feed the animals, and reap the rewards of their hard work.

We all hope to see you soon at Old Squire's Farm Market.

NEAR AND DEAR TO OUR HEARTS

Near: an adverb meaning close; to a point or place not far away; local.

Our vendors live "near" the market; most live within 25 miles of Old Squire's, and many live right here in the Oxford Hills area, which encompasses Harrison, Hebron, Otisfield, Oxford, Waterford, West Paris, Norway and South Paris. Our products are local. We do not import products from out of state or out of the country. MarketPlace vendors re-stock the refrigerators and freezers often. In-person vendors have new, fresh products for every market day.

Dear: an adjective meaning loved or beloved; heartfelt; earnest.

Farmers Market vendors love what they do. Farming is a hard life and requires endless hard work, but for those who do it, there is nothing they would rather be doing. Working in the fresh air with the land, the soil, the plants, the flowers, the animals, the fruit trees, and/or the gardens is a way of life that frees the soul and spirit. Baking all day in one's own kitchen gives a feeling of accomplishment far superior to that of working eight hours a day behind a desk. Our bakers know! They have done both jobs! Other vendors lovingly create their products as time allows: goat milk soaps; felted soaps; felted animals, birds, fish, vegetables, etc.; personal care products and pet care products; homemade crackers; dried apple slices; gluten-free granola; pure maple syrup; note cards; the list is long!
