  PYO Apples!  We are currently picking Macoun, Gala, Empire, Cortland, and Jonathan!

The summer harvest of our fruit and vegetables has begun.  After a rather cool spring the June sunshine warmed the soil and the timely July rain has allowed all plants to catch up to a normal ripening pattern.  I have just completed the garlic harvest and it is on the drying racks.  Several hundred Fire and German Extra Hardy give off a tremendous aroma.  The addition of the 100 acre “South Farm” lease has made for an extremely busy season.  This has allowed us to expand the size of our veggie planting in Southington.  I have a large planting of specialty potatoes in Farmington.

 

The South Farm is being used to also grow special grass crops to feed the beef cattle herd.  Grass fed beef requires growing and finishing the grass that provides the animals with the highest nutrients possible.

 

All of our meat whether it is beef, pork, chicken, or turkey, is free of growth agents and hormones.

 

I expect to be picking Zestar and Ginger Gold apples by mid-August.  The PYO wagon rides should begin by late August.  The wagons will run Friday thru Monday for the duration of the harvest.  Please call the farm for the exact start-up date.  Once again, all PYO apples will be by pre-purchase.  One peck for $15.00 and 1/2 bushel bags for $25.00.  Bags are purchased in the store.  For those not picking apples, a pre-purchase ride ticket will be available.

The family recently attended “Cultivate 2014” in Columbus, Ohio, the largest horticulture conference and expo in America.  We received training in identifying and controlling harmful insects and diseases.  Considerable time was spent looking at new plant species.  With our Christmas poinsettias planted the first week of July, this business is always looking one year out.

Hope to see you all back at the farm.  Our expanded week day hours for the summer has the store open until 6:00 PM.  Know your farmer.  Know your food.  The food I sell you is the same food I serve my grandkids.
