It is now definitely Autumn, complete with our usual Autumn wind and rain storms. With Autumn now here, we are in full swing of the fruit harvest, we have quite a selection of apples, pears, and vegetables to choose from. We hope everyone had a truly wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family. Before Thanksgiving we were able to meet with our Thanksgiving Prize Pack winner and give her the gift basket. She was super excited to have won, and that made our Thanksgiving even better!
Our current selection of apples available is: Bramley, King, Spartan, Boskoop and Jonagolds. Also available is our Anjou Pears. Our current selection of vegetables includes: Several varieties of Squash (Festival Acorn, Delicata, Kabocha and Spaghetti), Carrots, Beets, Kale, Russian Red Garlic, and Shallots. As always we have our Free Range Roasting Chickens available.
Coming soon will be our Gloster and Northern Spy Apples. These are our later season apples. We anticipate to have Gloster Apples available near Halloween, and the Northern Spy’s following a good frost. An interesting fact about the Northern Spy is that a frost will actually sweeten the apple.
Now available at our Farm Stand is a selection of preserves all made with our own Organically grown products. Currently available is our Peppery Pear Salsa, Sour Cherry Jelly, Apple Earl Grey Almond Jelly, Strawberry Vanilla Jam, Crab Apple Jelly, and a Spicy Apple Chutney and a Curried Apple Chutney.
We are open 7 days a week for drop ins, you can also contact us via email, phone, Facebook, or our Contact Us form on our website to order, or if you even just have questions about any of our products or farm. As a side note, we no longer offer Hazelnuts at our farm, unfortunately several years ago our trees were overrun with a blight and they no longer produce. Perhaps in the future we will replant the blight resistant variety, but as of now we do not have any hazelnuts.
