This Saturday, I will be selling my functional handmade pottery alongside Susan Brum of Hog Wild Pottery at the lovely Powisset Farm. We will be set up in the Powisset Farm barn… you can’t miss it when you turn off at 37 Powisset Road in Dover, MA. The big barn door opens at 10:00 AM and closes at 5:00 PM.
In the barn, CSA members will be collecting their vegetable shares; visitors to the farm may purchase local produce in the farm stand. This week there are local apples and the first of the fall choices: acorn squash! The two together will made a delicious meal. The farm stand also includes local honey, breads, cheese, welsh cakes, and hand towels by Lucy Two Shoes – just to name a few. There is a freezer filled with pork, chicken and meats all locally sourced. Crescent Ridge milk and ice cream plus local farm eggs are welcome additions.

The farm to table approach to living is simple and easy when you have a farm like Powisset where the farmers are friendly, the food is local and varied by season, and the community is cherished. Pottery is the handmade “ingredient” that holds your food and makes your experience complete. One of a kind, user friendly, created within 5 miles of the food that will go on it and in it: that’s farm to table.
It is always a great day when we sell pottery at the farm! See you Saturday!

Fall Pottery SALE at Powisset Farm This Saturday, September 28th from 10-1 at the farm stand, 37 Powisset Street, Dover, MA.
There is nothing I like better then to spend the day at the farm interacting with customers, talking about my functional pottery, enjoying the peacefulness of the environment.
Last weekend, the Fall Festival at Powisset Farm was rained out… so sad; however, the farm crew said a pottery sale this weekend in the barn would be AOK with them! As a shareholder I visit the farm each week (as chronicled in my weekly blog posts about food and pottery) .
Here are some of the pieces I’ll have with me at Saturday’s sale…
AND SO MUCH MORE!
Stop by and say hello. We can talk about the farm to table connection that is best with handmade pottery.
