At the Markets

We are finally getting in produce from the farm! We are starting to get rhubarb, zucchini, squash, pickling cucumbers, green onions, cabbage, berries and the list is continuing to grow! These items are currently available ONLY at our once a week farmers markets until they become more abundant for our every day roadside market stands. To see when our once a week farmers markets are, refer to our Markets page. Check out some neat before pictures from last month/earlier this month to now.

At the Farm

Although we have some things for the farm, there are certainly more things to come… What’s next on the list? We are getting more berry varieties, candy onions, radishes, tomatoes… Want to know what may be in season? Refer to our harvest lists on the Produce page.

Please keep in mind that harvest times will vary depending on the weather conditions, insect infestation, disease, natural damage, etc. These are estimated times of the year we should expect local produce. We have an advantage of growing some produce within our greenhouses to get some items earlier. However, we do grow a substantial amount of produce outdoors in our fields which could affect actual harvesting times.
