Farm To Fork

Wild Hare Farm is excited to be participating in the 2010 Farm To Fork Picnic. We are honored to be paired with Amy Tornquist of Watts Grocery as well as Sage and Swift catering. The New York Times recently ran an article on Amy's exceptional culinary talents and Watts Grocery. She has been more credits than I have space to blog in.

Say hello to my "lily" friends

If you didn't see Scarface then the play on words will be lost.

Our first calla lilies of the season are starting to come on. I am not much of a photographer so this picture doesn't do them justice. These guys are cool and we'll have several different colors available.

Asiatic Lilies. Over the course of the summer we will have these in white, yellow, red, pink and orange.

We also will have oriental lilies in red, white and pinks on and off through out the summer.

All of these flowers have a great vase life. The orientals have a strong sweet fragrance, the callas and asiatic are not fragrant, they are just eye candy.

Mother's Day

OMG ! It's almost Mother's Day and the conundrum of what to give mom.

Not to worry, WHF will have you covered.

What mom doesn't love beautiful flowers?

For Mother's Day we will have several varieties of flowers available: fragrant stock, tall delphinium, bachelor buttons, agrostemma, poppies, dutch iris, lilies and last but certainly not least tulips.

This is our last planting of tulips and we'll have red parrots, a neat red fringe, along with multiple varieties of regular long stem tulips in pink, yellow, red and orange.

To ensure you stay in mom's good graces and score extra bonus points we have delicious strawberries to compliment the flowers. Or you can eat the strawberries yourself and your secret will be safe with us.

Merle ensuring the bachelor buttons meet WHF quality standards.
