Currently in Season
October sees the end of the fall harvest and its chilly nights remind us to stock up for winter. While we still offer a variety of summer vegetables, made possible with the prolonging technology of our hoop houses, we'll have to say good bye to our most tender favorties. Cucumbers and pickle production has slowed considerably and will not be in supply. Sweet corn is expected to last until mid-month or first frost, whichever is sooner,and okra production has dwindled as well. Make the most of those two crops while you can. As we say good bye to summer peaches, we'll have a variety of fresh autumn apples. And there's always the favorite of the season--pumpkin! We offer a wide variety of both decorative and edible winter squash and pumpkins, perfect for your table and your soup pot!
Autumn farm work sees the continuation of our transplanting from earlier in the season, but now we're putting in the cold hardy veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and greens. These thrive in the cooler temperatures. We're also removing the spent stalks and plants of the more tender vegetables from our field and composting them. This compost is then used later to enrich our soil. The warmth of our season-extending hoop houses keep vegetables that would normally wither due to cooler temperatures going strong well into the autumn. We have zucchini, tomatoes, and other warm weather crops protected in these structures so our customers can enjoy them until we close our doors in late October.
We are currently offering a variety of tomatoes, summer squash, winter squash, onions, potatoes, leeks, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, peppers, beans, carrots, radishes, herbs, flowers, and our own honey. We also offer a variety of fruit: melon, peaches, and seasonal berries in the summer, and apples and cider in the fall.
Fresh, seasonal flowers are sold at the farm stand and are also available for special order. Whether wedding, bridal shower, corporate event, or a "just because" bouquet, we combine our home-grown greens, colors, and blooms to create lovely and natural designs. Our team designs everything from prom nosegays and corsages to centerpieces and custom bridal crowns. We're also excited to offer on-site "flower parties"! Bring your group to the farm for a hands-on arranging experience--perfect for birthdays, bridal parties, and more! To discuss pricing, delivery, setup, and your vision, please contact us!
