Berries closed today, Sweet corn arrives!!

Posted by on Aug 7, 2017 in Blog | Comments Off on Berries closed today, Sweet corn arrives!!

All berries are closed today and will reopen on Tuesday.  

Our first sweet corn of the season was ready a full week earlier than expected!!  We should have sweet corn daily now to the middle of September, (always dependent on natural weather fluctuations, and maturity so if you are depending on it, please call)

We also had our first tomatoes of the season over the weekend, so our Farm Market offerings are now growing.

We have lots of Berries, delicious and sweet nectarines and peaches, sweet corn, tomatoes and zucchini.  Our early apples are almost done and our next varieties Paula Red and Gravenstein should be ready in two weeks.  We also have lots of local products as well including honey, our own apple sauce and blackberry jam, and delicious apple butters made by Bear Meadow Farm.

 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.
