Happy Winter Solstice today! And merry holidays to all! We are back to weekly (socially distanced) farmstands: ARTfarm will be open every Wednesday afternoon 4:30–5:30pm. For now these will be first-come, first-served socially distanced distributions, but we may revert to the online pre-order system and longer open hours soon for safety. Your feedback is always welcomed.

Wednesday afternoon 12/22/21, visit Farmer Luca in the breezy parking lot for a whole lotta harvest: fresh sweet salad mix, BABY SPICY MIX!!!!, CUCUMBERS ooooh boy, long green beans, green and yellow summer squash (aka zucchini), baby bok Choi, Swiss chard and dandelion greens, tantalizing turnips, ravishing radishes, cilantro, dill, garlic chives, Italian basil, baby ginger (super thin skin no fibers), green hot chili peppers, sorrel in 8oz bag from Farmer Bob, gorgeous happy zinnia flowers that all the bees have crushes on, and eggs from Mongoose&Zinnia (still just one or two cartons, as our chickens are STILL on a laying strike). And…

Looking to grow some food at home? Farmer Luca will have a few extra tomato slips ready for transplanting into your garden or container: Black plum and Hawaiian slicer tomato varieties. We’ll also have pineapple slips available. If you want seedlings, please text us ahead so Farmer Luca can prep them and bring them up to the gate ahead of time for you. Text your name and number, variety and quantity to the farm phone at (340) 514-4873.

The painting above is a new original artwork by Marina Gasperi recently added to the current exhibition, “Small Life” showing at Café Christine Tues-Fri 10am-2:30pm, now through December 26th. Marina has also created some adorable chicken holiday ornaments out of recycled irrigation supplies. Please visit the Café in Christiansted from now until January 26th, over this holiday time and enjoy this ARTfarm production!

Love, ARTfarmers

  1. Merry Christmas, beautiful Gasperi Family!

    I had to write you when I saw Marina’s beautiful artwork!! Please tell her we think it’s amazing! She and Ava could spend the day painting/drawing all day together.❤️

    High five to Marina and we will be looking forward every Christmas to her artistic designs!😘

    Hugs all around and cheers to a happy healthy new year!
