Berry season is upon us!!

Blueberries, and yellow and red raspberries are available to pick this weekend at our farm.  In the next two weeks, blackberries will be ready for picking if we get some nice hot summer weather!!  Our market is now open daily (weekdays 9-6, Weekends 9-5) with produce from both of our farms.  A few summer apples and some peaches will be available later this week in our market.  

The RI Farm Scavenger hunt is happening again this year.  Come out and find the secret image that matches our family farm (clue)!  We have brochures if you haven’t started your hunt yet this season.  

Thanks for checking out our website.  We will be updating our harvest as it progresses.  Please visit this page or our Facebook page for updates on the peak seasons for your favorite foods.

 macheart  We want to take this time to thank all of you, our customers, for another year of coming to our farm.  We know that you can  go the Dave’s, or Stop and Shop, or Whole Foods to get your apples, berries, corn and Home Depot or Walmart for your pumpkins.  It may be easier,  or more convenient in all of your busy schedules, but we thank all of you who choose to support us, a local orchard/farm.   We try very hard to give the best we can each season.  We appreciate your extra effort to stop in or call to get your Honeycrisp, blueberries pumpkins and sweet apple cider during the harvest season.  We hope to see you next year.  We’ll be working hard over the next 8 months when we reopen in late July 2017 to bring you more quality food (as long as nature permits.)

We wish you all a happy, healthy winter and spring season.

Honeycrisp supplies are very good!!

Posted by on Oct 26, 2016 in Blog | Comments Off on Honeycrisp supplies are very good!!

We are done with apple picking from the trees, but our harvest happened in September at the best stage for flavor and to store the apples properly.  

We have lots of Honeycrisp available in our farm market.

Sweet apple cider, Spartan, McIntosh and Empire apples, and loads of pumpkins (tucked under blankets on this frosty night) are here at the farm.  

All pumpkins at our home farm will be “buy one get one free”(of equal or lesser value).  We have loads of pumpkins for decorating, or cooking here at the farm.  Swing by for your apples, cider and two or more pumpkins!!
