About Our Crops
Current Produce & Picking Hours:
Spring Harvest Open Weekends!
(Checking hours regularly is a good idea as they can adjust to accomidate harvest in the field)
depending on how much gets picked the day before.
We offer you the ability to come out and pick most of our veggies yourself. This insures you the freshest produce and quality you choose straight off the plant. It also allows for a wonderful family experience.
We also gather produce. We understand we have some customers that can’t make it out in our fields for picking. For this reason, we do offer the ability to order pre-gathered produce for pick up. We also stock a limited amount of pre-gathered produce at the start of each Saturday and Sunday during our harvest season.
We have currently met all of our requirements for organic certification and have made a personal choice to hold out on filing for our certification. We feel this will give us the ability to bring you organic produce at a lower cost and these days we can all appreciate the savings.
Our Fresh Zucchini You don’t want to miss the flavor of our zucchini. Available in small to large sizes. Making your cooking possibilities endless. We even have Round Zucchini (I recommend it stuffed with tomatoes, ground chicken, topped with cheese and baked at 350 degrees. Garnish with fresh basil! )
Ruby Chard A crinkly leafy vegetable, which is a member of the beet family, that has a bright red stalk with green leaves that have red veins running through them. Chard grows in clumps but is sold in loose leaf bunches. It can be eaten raw or the green leaves can be prepared in same manner as spinach, and the stalks can be prepared like asparagus. Swiss chard is high in vitamins A, K and C.
We will not have spring 2011 u-pick strawberries. Check back for 2012!
We grow Ceasr, Genova and Purple basil. All perfect for fresh cooking or drying. Combine with Fresh Sunflower seeds to create a great healthy pesto.
Organic Little Finger Eggplant – More slender and petite than your standard eggplant. Dark purple skin is thin and tender. Flesh has a silky texture with few seeds and mildly sweet flavor needing very little cooking time. Harvested young when 3-6″ long and glossy.
Straight eights are our main crop. A wonderful slicing cucumber.
