We already have a lot of greens started in our new seed starting room to get a jump on the 2014 growing season.
We also have a lot of plans to expand beds and other projects on the farm including re-vamping this web site!
Last year all of our posts went to the farm Facebook site -> http://www.facebook.com/mooseviewfarm but this year we promise that we will also keep this website alive and active for those of you who are not on Facebook.
If you are on Facebook please LIKE us if you have not already.
Thanks – Pam & Frank
Hi everyone, time to update this web site!
For now you can see what we are up to on our Mooseview Farm Facebook page.
Today – May 25, 2013 is opening day at the Wakefield Marketplace Farmers Market – we will be there!!
As we start our 2011 season at Mooseview Farm we are going to start an exciting new chapter in this “experiment”. We have joined a great group of small scale farmers that follow the guidance and encouragement provided by SPIN Farming – Small Plot INtensive Farming. http://www.spinfarming.com/
We have picked an area of our “lower farm” to try out SPiN farming on a modest scale.
Check back here soon for pictures as we mark out our plots, plant good things, and then start our harvest SPIN Style!
We have plenty of greens in the greenhouse
The first batch of potatoes have been planted
The Garlic is coming up!
It’s seed ordering time here at MVF!
Over the course of this first week of the year we will be placing our main seed orders.
Once they are done we will post the highlights here so you can see what will be coming to our new Farm Stand and the Farmer’s Markets we go to in the coming months.
Hi, we have made it past Labor Day and are now into the fall veggie season.
We have winter squash now and soon will have a great harvest of new fall potatoes!
Here are some pictures from our Fall Themed booth at the Wolfeboro Farmer’s Market last week.

We are heading towards Labor Day this coming weekend and along with it the traditional end to New England Farming.
Our Silver Queen Corn will be ready to pick this coming week and we hope to have it at both the Wolfeboro and Wakefield Markets.

Come visit us at the Farmer’s Markets!
All of our garlic varieties – Music, Montara Rocambole, Asian Tempest and Elephant will start coming out of the drying shed in time for our markets this week.
See us in Wolfeboro on Thursday or Wakefield on Saturday to get your organically grown garlic.
Fresh garlic should always be properly cured before it is sold or used. The best way is to start the curing process in the ground by withholding watering for the last few weeks before harvest. As soon as they are harvested (not left out in the sun) our garlic is hung in our drying shed for at least 3 weeks.
The dry weather this July has been perfect garlic curing weather!
July 13th – we have started to harvest garlic and boy what a difference a year makes!
Last year with all the rain it was about the worst conditions for growing and harvesting good garlic.
This year with 5 days of a heat wave leading up to the first day we harvested it was about as perfect garlic weather as you could ever hope for.
So far we have harvested about 1/4 of the crop and the Montara Rocamboles are the best ever at MVF. The Music and Asian Tempest are also just wonderful.
The crop now heads to the drying shed for proper curing. If you ever buy fresh garlic and it is a little mushie it may be because it was picked and sold and not properly cured. It really needs to hang in the shed with good ventilation for 2 to 3 weeks depending on the air temp before it is used or sold.
Look for it from Mooseview Farm the last weekend in July.
We are the Garlic Capital of Brookfield!
We will be going to the Wakefield Marketplace on Saturday July 10th.
See us there from 9am to about 1pm
See us at the Wakefield Marketplace
