Welcome Back My Friends

"Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends. We're so glad you could attend. Come inside! Come inside! Come inside, the show's about to start, guaranteed to blow your head apart. Rest assured you'll get your money's worth. The greatest show in Heaven, Hell, or Earth."

Welcome to Farm Season 2008 at Gravity Hill Farm. Last year the farm itself was a totally new enterprise. This second year the word 'new' applies to many facets of the Gravity Hill enterprise. To detail all the new in one posting would be impossible. So, please be patient as the changes taking place at Gravity Hill are presented.

In addition to this blog, one new thing is that there is now an official Gravity Hill Farm website-

Next is a new sign in front of the farm. The previous sign, sadly, was vandalized. Here is the new one:

Last year approximately 1.7 acres of land were farmed. This year the goal is to come close to doubling that amount. Below is a picture of Farmer David breaking ground on some of the new land that will go into production. More pictures of the land being used will be forthcoming.

Below is the new barn that has been built. What the barn is being used for will be saved for a future posting. For now, know that some animals will be residing there. Hopefully you can live with the suspense.
In addition to new land in the front field being farmed, land in the back field will be farmed. This necessitates a new well. The picture below shows the new well being dug.

Along with all the new, there are a few constants. One is Farmer David's trusty and faithful companion, Hule. When so much new is happening, having something constant can be very reassuring.

On behalf of Farmer David and farm owners David and Maria, welcome back to Gravity Hill Farm, food grows here. If you want to enjoy the bounty of Gravity Hill Farm you can find us at three different markets. Sunday mornings in Lawrenceville, NJ in the lot off of Gordan Ave from 9AM-1PM; Thursday afternoons in New Hope, Pa in the high school parking lot from 3:30PM-7PM; Saturday mornings at the Golden Nugget Flea Market on Highway 29 in Lambertville from 9AM-1PM.

Great to see and hear about the farm. I have added the blog to my favorites. I will be down in the Titusville area on Thursday morning- any chance you will be around? I would LOVE to check the place out!
