Field Report

Heron Pond News 10/16/16

Posted by Andre Cantelmo :: Sunday, October 16 :: 7:15am

The entire crew of Heron Pond Farm would like to thank you for your support this summer. Being a CSA member is making a choice to get more involved with your local food system. You made a commitment to us and your commitment has helped us to further our goal of becoming better farmers. You have given us the security we need to be better stewards to the land, and better members of the community.

This year we improved our irrigation system out of necessity and are better prepared for what the future holds. We, with the help of a number of community groups, found a home for so many seconds and fed to many folks to count. We have begun to see real improvement in our soils through the practices we have been investing in over time, practices that your membership has helped to make possible. The CSA has become to back bone of Heron Pond Farm’s cash flow that has allowed us to maintain a crew of six full time farmers. The ability to have consistency in our crew has helped us to create a more sustainable farming system that we all get to enjoy.

We hope you have enjoyed your summer with us. We know we have enjoyed having you. Many of you will be joining us next week for the start of the Winter CSA. For those of you that are not, we hope to see you again next year, and thank you again.

It would be a great help if you could help us improve our CSA. Please cut and past the questions below and follow this link: Building a better CSA. This email will be sent to everyone involved in making your CSA happen. They will use this information to make next year CSA even better.

What was your favorite thing about Heron Pond Farm CSA?

What is the one thing you would change about Heron Pond Farm’s CSA if you could?

Thanks again for taking the time.
See you this week!
Locally yours,
Time to sign up for Winter CSA!
We still have just a few spots left in the Winter CSA. We can not go over 200. Traditionally this is a big week for last minuet sign ups so do not delay: We have 5 share left at the farm stand, 3 left in Portsmouth, 6 left in Dover. 

Sign up today on our website or at the farm stand or at one of our Farmer’s Market booths.

NEW! Partial share! Due to your requests we are now offering smaller sized share, all the greens that you get in a full share but lighter on the roots and storage crops.

Full Share: The full share is great if you cook most of your meals at home. You can see on our website photos and a week by week list of what our shareholders got last winter under the CSA tab, click on “What’s in a winter share

We can almost taste the cheese!

Heron Pond Farmers gave a hand moving the cheese vat into it's new home. All of the equipment is here and we're attending to the final details. You'll be able to find Bell & Goose Cheese this Holiday Season in our farm stand.

Hasselback potatoes


These garlicky Hasselback roasted potatoes are a great side dish. They have a crunchy top with a delicious garlic and rosemary flavor.


  • 8 potatoes (we used Nadine variety)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary, roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper



  1. Preheat oven to 200°C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
  2. Cut potatoes into thin slices, without cutting entirely through the slice to separate.Mix the oil with the garlic and brush into the spaces in the potatoes.
  3. Sprinkle with rosemary and salt and pepper.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes.


  • If you place an old chopstick on either side of the potato it will stop the knife cutting all the way through the potato.
  • I like to make sure the garlic is crushed well and sometimes I even grind it in a mortar and pestle with the oil so it releases its full flavor.
  • Be generous with the salt and pepper and try to use freshly ground as it gives the best flavor.

Thank you Sarah George! Be sure to check out her site!
Last Summer Share

Remember this shot? 

Tomatoes are back in the share this week and they might make an appearance in the winter CSA if the temps hold up. This is summer shares last pickup so we included a nice amount of beans. They freeze well if you can’t get through them. They are also likely in the first winter share.
