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!

Every week, I head over to Powisset Farm in Dover, Ma to pick up my CSA share. This year marks my fourth year as a member. Driving onto the farm is therapeutic… it’s beautiful barn, vista of green fields and bountiful gardens, and, a farm crew that is always upbeat and cheerful. I’ve never left there in all my time not feeling happy that I am part of this community.
This Saturday, my potter friend, Sue Brum of Hog Wild Pottery (who is also a member at the farm) will set up tables filled with our pottery to sell and enjoy a peaceful day chatting with new and old friends alike.
We’ll be in the barn, near the farm stand from 10am to 5pm on Saturday.
Here are some pieces I will be selling that work well with the food in the farm stand and in the CSA share…
perfect bowl for a salad of corn and tomatoes
double dip bowl for salsas
egg separators for baking with farm raised chicken eggs
spoon rests for all the cooking you do
Stop by the farm this Saturday, September 20th between 10am and 5pm to learn about functional pottery and how it works well with local food and flowers in a farm to table approach to living.
Food and Pottery are a natural combination. Food grown on a neighborhood farm served on a platter handcrafted by a local artisan… what could be better?
Join me this weekend at Powisset Farm from 10AM to 3PM on Saturday, November 9th. The farm stand will have pork – smoked and not, fresh eggs from Moosehill Farm in Sharon, loads of veggies pulled fresh from the fields at Powisset Farm, pottery by local clay artisans Lisa WB Walker and Hogwild Pottery, photos of the farm crafted into cards, and so much more…
Here’s how great food and handmade pottery work together…

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.
The rain held off and I was able to participate in opening day for Bird Park’s first farm stand today with my fellow potter, Susan Brum. We featured functional pottery under our tent. Moose Hill had a table set up with fresh veggies and an opportunity to join their CSA. It was a wonderful morning spent talking with customers and sharing the food and pottery connection.
Moose Hill is a Trustees of the Reservation property as is Bird Park. Their joined efforts brought the farm stand to East Walpole. It will be open from now until October 5th from 9-12 every Saturday.
