Peaches - bushels of peaches arrived this morning. As you can see, the color is gorgeous. We pick our peaches tree ripened for flavor and a little firm to avoid bruising. The first peaches are always clingstone (the fruit clings to the pit) but the flavor and incredible juiciness make up for it!
Sweet Corn- Our very own. Order by the bushel for your next summer picnic!
Tomatoes – nothing compares to the taste of a field grown tomato! Available by the pound right now, but canning season is just around the corner. Stay tuned…
Sweet Peppers – green for now, the red are getting redder all the time in this sunshine!
Eggplant - a unique vegetable in appearance and texture… eggplant parm, anyone?
Pickles - you can pick up these tiny, crisp versions of cucumbers one at a time or by the bushel. Our favorite cucumbers for salads. Available in 3-4″ (perfect for whole dills) or 5-6″ (best for sweet chunks, relishes and slicing). We also have regular cucumbers for slicing.
Zucchini and Summer Squash - Have you tried grilling zucchini yet? Just toss it with a little olive oil, salt and pepper, maybe some fresh herbs and you’re good to go.
Black Raspberries - Fill a few freezer bags to enjoy this amazing flavor in the winter time! Great with yogurt for breakfast, in cobblers, cakes and pies… if they make it home, that is.
Beets - have you tried them shredded on top of salads? They add a wonderful splash of color to so many dishes
Sweet Cherries - won’t be here too much longer. Another great treat to stock up in the freezer!
Sour Cherries - Their season is very short, so grab them while they’re here. If you’re a fan of these refreshing, sweet-tart stone fruits, check out the previous blog entry. You can enjoy them allll year long.
Locally grown – we also have blueberries from Fabry’s in Holley, red raspberries from Brown’s in Waterport, and carrots from a farm in the Rochester area.
