Wood-Fired Pizza from Stonewell Farm- Fri. July 3rd & Sat. July 4th

Three years ago we finished our stone, wood fired oven. Over the years numerous friends, neighbors and family have enjoyed the exceptional ‘pizza rustica’ that this authentic beehive oven produces and have suggested we make  our pizzas available to the wider public. And so, during this challenging time of physical and social distancing, we’re pleased to offer these pizzas to you, our neighbors

Participants gain confidence using unfamiliar tools through one-on-one instruction.

It’s that time of year again! On Saturday, April 28th and Sunday, April 29th, 2018,  Andrew Pighills will be conducting another dry stone wall building workshop here at Stonewell Farm.

This two-day, hands-on,  workshop instructs homeowners and tradespeople the structural techniques involved in building a dry stone wall. The outdoor classroom provides the setting for practicing proper dry stone walling methods including safety, batter, hearting, throughs, and capstones.  Knowledge gained will prepare students for their own projects and help train their eyes to identify proper walling techniques in all dry-stone walls. Registration is limited to 16 participants, who must be 18 years of age or older. Cost includes an evening “Pizza Rustica’ dinner, prepared on-site in a hand-built stone, wood-fired oven crafted by the instructor.
Cost: $350  Pre-registration is required.

The Glass: Half Empty or Half Full?

After all of these years, doesn’t Dickens still speak to us with candid authority? It all depends upon which side of the fence one finds oneself on, doesn’t it?
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”
—The opening paragraph of Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities
