In July, our U-pick berry season takes off, starting with dewy red raspberries and expanding to include our giant, glistening blackberries a few weeks later. Our prized peaches, the symbol of summer, also begin to arrive mid-month. Pie time! This month’s produce: Sweet corn, tomatoes, red raspberries, blackberries, early peaches, zucchini, cucumbers, green beans and peppers.July
August’s heat brings our peaches to blushing ripeness and fills the air with their scent. Each peach, one by one, is gently hand-picked at just the right moment, letting its juice and sweetness swell to perfection. Each day, dawn to dusk, is full of picking peaches in every kind of weather – a mad rush to gather the harvest just as it ripens, but before wind and weather can ruin it. This month’s produce: Sweet corn, tomatoes, freestone peaches (many varieties), blackberries, zucchini, summer squash, beans and cucumbers.August
In September, the rush of summer begins to slow. We relax, too, gathering apples by the bushel, gleaning the last tomatoes from the vines and preserving the harvest against chilly days to come. Like apples? Try our MacIntosh, Empire, Jonagold, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith and many more. This month’s produce: Sweet corn (early Sept.), peaches (early Sept.), tomatoes, apples (many varieties), cider, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage.September
I accidentally stumbled across this farm trying to find a different farm to go to on a Sunday after church. I am happy I did because they do have the best peaches that I have ever had which is why I went back 3 weekends in a row!!! Kind of hard to find going through what felt like switchbacks because of Google maps but it was worth it. I have bought peaches, apples & a monster head of cabbage and I was not disappointed with anything! My only regret is finding this farm so late and now having to wait until next year for the peaches.
