The harvest has begun in
earnest. All 27 tomato varieties are yielding a beautiful crop. I am
very pleased by the quality of some of the new heirlooms we have
Cosmonaut Volka and Bobcat are incredible as to flavor. Our
old stand by and customer favorite is Moskvitch. The supply of these
tomatoes should hold well into fall.
The Garlic harvest is complete and this will be our first time selling
garlic grown on our farm. The variety I grew was Georgian Fire. Plans
are in place to triple our garlic production next year. This crop is
slightly smaller due to the dry April, but it is very flavorful.
The apples look great. The size seems to be excellent. Ginger Gold
will be followed by Zestar, then Gala and Mac. Macoun should be on
schedule for on or about September 21. This year Pick Your Own will be
sold by the bag. A small 1 peck bag for $15.00 or a large 1/2 bushel
bag for $25.00. This will eliminate the lines at the register and
minimize the theft problem that plagued us last year. For those folks
not wanting to pick but enjoy a ride to the orchard, there will be
tickets sold for $1.00 per person over the age of 2. Apple pickers ride
free. All items are pre-purchased in the store.
Our CSA has been very popular this season. I am pleased to answer any
questions you may have. Due to the unique nature of our program, we are
restricted in the number of participants.
A new parking lot has been added to assist us in better serving you
during peak weekends.
Mum growth has been fantastic and I increased the number of plantings by
over 1,000. The pricing is $4.99 each or 4 for $18.00 (the same as last
year). Shop early for the best selection.
Our farm is one of the most diverse in New England. Everything from
maple syrup to flowers and veggie plants to fresh vegetables to apples,
beef, pork, chickens, turkeys, eggs, mums, poinsettia’s and Christmas
trees. To be able to do this, I hope to see you on a regular basis to
provide your family with the best local products.
