Happy Saturday!

We are saying goodbye to a loyal farm employee who has been with us for 22 hard working years. She joined us at Southgate and travelled with us to the ARTfarm on the South Shore. She is a Kenmore refrigerator, fondly known for years as “Left Fridge”. We are in temporary need of a household refrigerator to cool produce in. If any customer has a spare working (ugly is fine) full sized refrigerator they would like to loan for a few months or donate to the farm, please let us know via text or call at (340)514-4873.

Thank you!

So it’s finally becoming a “thing:” we will be holding regular (socially distanced) farmstands Wednesday afternoons 4:30-5:30. For now these will be first come first served, but we may revert to the pre-order system and longer open hours as the season gets underway and crowd sizes increase.

Looking to grow some food at home? Farmer Luca will have a few extra tomato slips ready for transplanting into your garden or container on Wednesday: Black plum, black cherry, Hawaiian slicer, Cherokee green. We’ll also have pineapple slips available. A full list of available produce will be published and emailed before Wednesday afternoon.

The image above is original artwork from the current exhibition, “Small Life” showing at Café Christine Tues-Fri 10am-2:30pm. Please visit the Café in Christiansted over this holiday time and enjoy this ARTfarm production!

Love, ARTfarmers
