Up at the Potter Hill Farm, Jeff Backer spent Friday with his hands in the soil — despite an unexpected snowstorm which dropped about 20 inches on the area. He was working in the greenhouse of the two year old farm, established at the Grafton Land Trust’s Potter Hill Meadows.
Potter Hill Farm is now taking reservation’s for the farm’s Beef CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Year-old cows are bought in the spring to graze in the meadows until fall, when they are humanely slaughtered. A share is equal to a quarter of beef, about 100 lbs.
Potter Hill also sells its heirloom vegetables at the Grafton Farmers Market, which will open for the 2013 season on Thursday, June 27.
