The Great Fall Harvest!


I picked all this produce today! (except for the onions that are all in the barn nicely curing) The great fall harvest is beginning! Currently at market we are selling fresh Green Beans, Swiss Chard, Beets with fresh tops, fresh dug Potatoes, 'Candy' & 'Superstar' Spanish & Redwing Onions, fresh cut Cabbages, greenhouse Heirloom Tomatoes, Golden Sugar Beets to name the majority! New this week is fresh pulled Carrots! Our sweet carrots are back with a vengeance! Fresh tops to boot, so you know they are field fresh for sure!! Also beginning at the end of this week will be our fall Broccoli harvest! Next week, we will have tons for all markets. This fall we will be offering Celery, Leeks, Celariac (root celery, very tasty!), Empire Apples, Red Delicious Apples (not an abundance and not pretty at all from our trees lining the farm driveway), Pie Pumpkins, Squash, Brussel Sprouts, Spinach, Arugula & Tatsoi. Going into storage with the leeks and celariac will be tons of cabbages, carrots, beets & onions.
