 The produce market opens at 9 am. The Moka Cafe opens at 6:30 am so you can get something before you pick blueberries or afterwards.

We anticipate having the field open before again this week and Saturday so stay in touch.

    The farm market will be closed this Monday but reopen Tuesday morning at 9 am. We have been picking blueberries for the markets and should begin PYO this week. As we normally do the first 2 times of PYO will be very short because we do not want to over pick the fruit. A blueberry needs to be fully ripe not just colored blue. It takes a whole week to recover from over picking and under ripe fruit is not he quality we want to sell. Watch closely the emails, website and this Face book site.


   Squash, zucchini and cucumbers continue to share their season in the sun. The dill is slowly coming up to speed. Kale and collards are still coming in. We have a new planting that will soon be harvested. The collards are smaller but our feedback has been very good. I have not had bountiful amounts of carrots but the ones we have pulled have been very good. There is more broccoli on the way. Beans are coming along and increasing in volume. Look for some October beans soon. Cantaloupes and watermelons are shaping up. The tomatoes and peppers are doing what they can to get up to speed. We should have a bountiful supply of basil.

We are digging our potatoes now. This ought to be interesting as there are new varieties and a good crop. The site for these potatoes is very good. I am interested in knowing will the soil make a difference in the eating qualilty of these tubers!

Watermelons and cantaloupes are very good now. We are bringing them in from Columbia but they now seem to have over come the bad weather that set them back earlier.

  Thank you for supporting us, especially the farm market. We have struggled to fill in voids and hope that you will find in the next weeks that the farm market is a place that can serve you well and be worthy of your support. the Moka cafe is opening around the end of the month.You can find them on facebook.

    Now is the time for squash, zucchini, cucumbers. we have some excellent produce that can be bought in volume for pickling or grilling. We have the ability at this time to have large zucchini for stuffing. For pickling cucumbers you can get the size you need just let us know.Sthe dill is coming ( still needs to grow a little ) but can get small amounts now. Blueberries are progressing and we have some high bush to sell. PYO blueberries are still a couple of weeks away. Blackberries are trying to ripen but should have some soon.
If you have seen the pictures you know we are beginning to pick some beans.This year we have some pole beans and a variety of types of beans. Sarah is at he Myrtle's market Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. She has peaches and plums . She will be at the Culinary market on Thursday. All the squash, zucchini, cucumbers, beans, greens, collards, kale, lettuce , broccoli, diakon are certified organic, grown right here on the farm. If you value the food you eat be sure to tell others who do as well. This is a special time of the year to enjoy food you can believe in.

Sarah will be at the Culinary market Thursday. On Friday and Saturday she will be at Myrtle's Market. The strawberry crop has had to start with new fruit. If the weather holds good we should have some good berries yet to come.

   Sarah is at the Myrtle's market with lots of strawberries, fresh vegetables from the farm. The yellow squash is very pretty as are the broccoli and diakon radishes. Lots of leafy greens, lettuces and more. At the farm market we have lots of strawberries pre-picked. Now is a good time for large purchases and jam berries.

  Dispite the rain and wet conditions we have a lot going on. Weeding beans and planting beans, setting out more tomato plants and more cucumbers. Sowing more watermelon seeds, etc.
