Watch: One Last Fling for the Trebuchet

In days of old, medieval armies would roll out their trebuchets to besiege enemy walls, whipping large projectiles with astonishing speed. Our trebuchet was built for peaceful purposes, although it does take a toll on pumpkins when we roll it out each fall for the Living Local Harvest Festival in West Tisbury and our own Pumpkin Festival here at the farm.

We had a great time with it again this year, hurling countless pumpkins far into the pasture where they exploded on contact. Now pumpkin season is coming to an end and the trebuchet is back in its barn, but we can still watch it in action on our YouTube channel, and dream of next autumn.

Wind and Sun Power This Farm — And Then Some

We’re excited to share some news about our energy program here at the farm. Along with our 50 kilowatt-hour windmill — which, so far, has created enough electricity to offset the carbon emissions of more than 100 cars on the road for a year — we’re now generating even more power from new solar panels on the roofs of the farmstand and machine shop buildings.  

“We are an energy-positive farm,” said Simon Athearn, explaining that Morning Glory now sends a small amount of excess electricity back to the local power grid, instead of drawing energy from it.

Our solar project cost $115,000 all told, with state-of-the-art photovoltaic panels using microinverters to convert direct current into alternating current. “The energy field created is minuscule compared to old-style inverters, which makes them safer to live and work around,” Simon said.
