Sign for Potato Stand

Last week the Adventure Team traveled to Tiverton, RI on our quest for a call to full time ministry employment. Our overnight lodgings were at Ferolbink Farms, the most beautiful potato farm I’ve ever visited. Owners Pete and Dee Peckham farm a total of 400 acres along the Sakonnet River in Tiverton and Little Compton. They also run a B & B in the large farmhouse, which has views of Aquidneck Island and Rhode Island Sound. Along with a number of potato varieties, Ferolbink Farms produces butternut squash and “high bush” blueberries.

While there was still ten inches of snow on the ground at our house in Milbridge, ME, spring was on its way at Ferolbink. Crocuses were blooming at the base of the ancient oak tree. The fields were bare, muddy, and waiting for this year’s crop. All of us enjoyed walking the farm roads in the warm sunshine. The girls climbed trees and swung on the swings. It was a hopeful day.
