** MASKS ARE REQUIRED **

 

Open Daily 9am to 5pm

The year 2020 has been challenging for all of us.

COVID has really changed the way we do business.

Curbside grocery pick-up allowed us to supply meat,

fruit and veggies in March, April, and May when

the big stores had shortages.  We reopened the store

this summer with a new floor plan to keep everyone

safe.  Sanitizing of all touchpoints is done throughout

each day.  Masks covering the nose (very critical to cover) is required when in the store.

The drought was the most severe since 1964.  June, July and August saw almost no rain.  The garlic and onion harvest was good.  Both sweet potato and regular potatoes were surprisingly good.  Apples were another issue, a very light apple set followed by severe drought and the high winds of tropical storms made for a small harvest.  We set a new record for pumpkin sales and we still cannot believe the thousands of pounds sold.

Our supply of farm-raised chickens, turkeys, and beef are in excellent condition.  We will be well supplied going into 2021.  A waiting list for beef sides is kept on a first come, first serve basis.

As we approach the Christmas holiday, there will be a great supply on hand of wreaths in various sizes.  Our poinsettias are looking robust with brilliant color.  Our Christmas tree selection of both pre-cut and cut your own is in good shape.  This will be the first year we will offer Meyers Spruce.  This tree looks like a blue spruce but has softer needles and rumor has it, it does not shed.  Anxious to get some feedback, they are beautiful.  I have some outstanding handmade gift baskets that we can ship via UPS.  Due to COVID, we will not be offering wagon rides, but will transport all trees back to the barnyard.

I am open daily 9AM to 5PM through December 23, 2020.  I will close for the holidays, then starting Saturday, January 9, I will be open every Saturday and Sunday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, weather permitting.  I might add that my weather predicting husband says the bees tell him it is going to be a real New England winter.

The CDC advised that no dogs be allowed.  Dogs, cats, and rabbits have proven to have zoonotic capability.  There are no known cases in livestock (cattle and horses) but the recommendation is to keep the public away from them until more is known.

Due to restrictions imposed by Covid-19 guidelines,

our  barnyard is currently closed.

 

Store Open Daily  (April 1st thru December 23rd) 9am to 5pm
