Fresh From the Farm

Fresh From the Farm

Things are getting exciting here on the farm. The tomatoes will soon be ripe for the picking. They are just starting to turn colors and they are amazingly large this year. Lots of tasty cherry tomatoes this year as well. Stay tuned for the first of this seasons tomato awesomeness!!

The peppers are doing amazing as well (we have actually had to stake some of them up, they are falling over from the weight) We have regular green and Flavorburst available this week. We will have purple, yellow, orange, and Sweet Chocolate available in a few weeks. Colored peppers take about two extra weeks to develop their colors.

We hope to be hearing from our sweet corn producer soon for the first of our local corn. Most “local” corn available in stores right now is coming out of Lancaster county.

Small Fruits

We have a small amount of red raspberries available this week. Blackberries will be ripening in the next week or two. We may have small quantities of strawberries available in the next few weeks as well. Stay tuned.
