April 16th - Harvest of the Month - Parsnips
It was great to meet many of you at the VT Farm to School Conference last Wednesday. It was an inspiring day! Thanks again to everyone who donated samples for the event: Commonwealth Dairy, Echo Farm Pudding, Elm City Bagels, Grafton Cheese, Green Mountain Orchards, and True North Granola.

I wanted to share a little about the Harvest of the Month workshop I attended. Harvest of the Month provides great resources for everyone: schools, institutions, retail outlets, producers, and more. You can download resources direct from the website here . You can also take the pledge and receive posters in the mail! There are some tasty recipes to try in your cafeteria, restaurant, or in your home. Even better it's all free for you to use.

Harlows has just a few parsnips left, so get them while you can!

We are looking forward to more fresh produce coming online soon. If you are a WFF producer, please let Sara know when you are expecting to add or have added new inventory online. Thanks!

Feature Vendor
Westminster Organics & Harlow Farm
Third generation farmer Paul Harlow has been an early pioneer of organic farming in Vermont. Returning to the family farm in 1974 and seeing the changing face of dairy, Paul bought the farm from his father eager to take on a new challenge of growing produce and do it organically.

Since 1985 the entire farm has been certified organic using only biological fertilizers and pesticides and crop rotation processes that are still practiced today, yielding a bounty of vegetables, fruits and berries, poultry, eggs, beef, lamb and pork. Paul’s original farm, Harlow Farm, has become the flagship operation of the Westminster Organics partnership which manages over 150 acres farmed by Paul and his team.

The fertile Connecticut River valley has provided an ideal location to produce high quality organic produce which has been sold locally,
within the New England region, and throughout the eastern US. Westminster Organics grows over 40 crops with over 30 seasonal staff.

Westminster Organics aims to supply high quality, safe and healthy organic food that is affordable and widely available.
