Currently in Season
It's officially summer, and with the hotter days our farmstand begins to fill with the popular favorites. In early July we already have tomatoes, cucumbers pickles, carrots, scallions, garlic, honey, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, green beans, peppers, eggplant (both traditional and asian), potatoes, red and green leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce, various cooking greens, and okra. Mid-July brings the arrival of summer's powerhouse veggie, fresh sweet corn!
Mid-summer is a busy time at the farm. It's all about monitoring and maintaining healthy plants, checking for pests, staying on top of weeds, and bringing in the first of the main harvest we worked so hard on in Spring. Our responsible watering practices using drip irrigation makes sure our plants stay hydrated witout wasting unnecessary water, and the mulch we use retains that moisture even on the hottest days. Our high tunnels give us an advantage by letting us jump-start the growing season. That means we're harvesting our first tomatoes before the 4th of July, due to an early April planting.
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!
