Spring Work Days

Thank you to everybody who helped out at our Spring Work Days!  We had one sunny and warm day and one cold and snowy day, both of which were very productive.  We cleared the space around the old barn for the Little Farmers play area, planted five fruit trees in the Community Orchard, planted potatoes in the Growing Together Garden, packaged beans for the Vegetable of the Year campaign, and installed solar electric fencing around the bee hive.  The Community Hoopla to celebrate our new tractor (thanks to you!) was a festive break from the work, as were the two potluck lunches.  It’s going to be a great growing season!

It’s a Kubota…thanks to you!

After a grand showing of community support with over 100 contributors to the “tractor fund”, it’s official:  we got a Kubota!  It’s a 2005 48 hp that will be just right for all of the farm work at the Cable Community Farm.  THANK YOU to everybody who helped with this community effort.  We’re going to grow a lot of food!

Help Otis Retire!

“Otis”, our 1939 Ford 9N tractor, is long overdue for retirement!  Oh, we’ll still use Otis for a parade every now and again and maybe to pull a trailer around the farm, but the Cable Community Farm needs a more powerful tractor to keep up with all of the work around the farm.  We’ve launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for the purchase of a new (used) tractor.  You can help by following this link and making an online donation:

We envision a community with abundant access to healthy, affordable food.  Your donation will help us further the mission of our organization and make Cable a better community for all of us!
