Spring is an exciting time on the farm! We never know exactly when it will start, some years as early as March and other years not until May. We start planting as soon as the ground thaws and cross our fingers we don't get an overnight freeze after the blossoms open. Spring's first gift to the farm is the wild ramp which we forage for in our woods.
Fall is the season of the apple and here on the farm we grow 72 varieties! Alongside the abundance of apples we also grow pears, pumpkins- for cooking and carving- and many varieties of winter squash including butternut, delicata, kabacha and sweet dumpling to name a few!
Check back in August for the first farm inspired Fall recipes!!
Mother Nature really struts her stuff June through August! We open the farm for Pick Your Open when the strawberries and peas come up, typically in June. The farm is in full glory during the summer months!
Ever wonder why our apples remain so crisp and juicy even in February? Our controlled environment storage facility enables us to provide apples, pears, root vegetables, pasture raised meats and frozen fruit products year round! Each week we take out of cold storage only those products that we will sell that week, leaving the rest in storage to preserve their freshness.
