IF THE FIELDS ARE WET, WE WILL HAVE TO CLOSE THIS FIELD SATURDAY. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE, BUT YOU MAY PICK ANOTHER DAY DURING THE WEEK, WE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED.
BULK SALES, increase you share!:
Tomatoes: We have lots of cherry tomatoes (pick-your-own). We have increased the number of slicers and plums as the harvest is heavier, but not enough to sell bulk yet. Heirlooms are just coming on but they are not part of the share this week as we do not have enough for all and they do not store well. We hope to have more coming on but they are a tricky crop to grow as they don't have much disease resistance. We grow a green and orange variety. We will put a few out on the counter and offer them for sale to those interested in expanding their tomato minds.
We have tons of Peppers and Eggplant, nice crops! Stock up the freezer and buy bulk, or bring a friend to the farm and purchase extra. Great prices for organic!
- Cherry tomatoes, Pick-Your-Own, $2.50/quart
- Heirlooms, .75 each
- Eggplant, Italian varieties $1 each and Asians .50 each
- Peppers, green bells .50 each
- Cantaloupe, $1.50 each. This is the last of this crop for the season, just a few left.
We have a new sunflower patch in, just out front our Farm Shop. Big heads and a smaller branching variety. Flower share members, select either a mixed bouquet or larger stems. Flower sales, $4/bunch.
OTHER FARM SHOP FAVORITES - SAUSAGE, HOT POCKETS, MUSHROOMS:
The sausage is a hit, White wine/Parsley sold out. We still have Granny Smith, Sun dried Tomato and Feta/Spinach varieties. Hot Pockets available too, Sun dried Tomato and Spinach/Feta. Help yourself to the freezers and we will ring you up. Also Farmer Caroline's oyster mushrooms first come first serve - she sells out fast!
From all of us, thanks for supporting the Farm and we look forward to seeing you in Farm Shop.
