This year, we will have plenty of Toscano Kale available out in the fields. This is a delicious kale variety that is great for stir fries, soups, and kale chips!

We are in the midst of our onion harvest right now, getting everything in to cure in the seedling greenhouse. You can find our onions at the farmstand until Friday, and look for them soon at your local Hannaford Store!

Dear Online Farmstand Shopper,
 
The above shot, taken last year, is a harbinger of weather to come . . . looks like we may have a bit of snow on Thanksgiving!
 
This week is the last week of our 2013 online farmstand.  We've got a lot of great treats for your Thanksgiving feast - or perhaps for your post-Thanksgiving greens cravings.  Look for our salad mix, baby kale mix, spinach, and carrots, amongst other things.  And, just this week, we've got potatoes on the list as well.
 
IMPORTANT NOTE: DELIVERY/PICKUP WILL BE ON WEDNESDAY THIS WEEK!!!!  The farmstand will close Tuesday at 7 am, so get your orders in quickly!
 
Thank you all very much for a great season!

Sincerely,

Jed, Emilia, Ray, and Silas

Dear Online Farmstand Shopper,
 
With the first real frosts this week, our fall crops are finally starting to show their true flavors.  Spinach makes its debut, the carrots are crisp and sweet, and the kale is developing a new complexity of flavor in the cold.  In addition to these, we've got broccoli, onions, garlic, salad mix, brussels sprouts, and much more for you this week.
 
 
Sincerely,

Emilia, Jed, Ray, and Silas

Dear Online Farmstand Customer,

With the colder weather bearing down this week, our fall carrot crop is coming into its own.  The roots are crunchy and sugary sweet.  We're also harvesting the first of our red cabbage this week.  Add this to broccoli, onions, yellow peppers, salad mix, and more, and we've got all kinds of fall goodies to adorn your shopping basket this week.
 

Sincerely,
 

Emilia, Jed, Ray, and Silas
