Crop Report: July

Happy Fourth of July! What a sunny warm week it’s been. We were able to get lots of work done on the farm and will be at the Rochester Public Market Saturday and the Brighton Farmers Market Sunday. Here’s what you can expect to find on our tables.

Strawberries (this will be the last week!)

Sugar Snap Peas

Shelling Peas

Beets (from this year!)

String Beans (limited supply)

Spring Onions

Scapes

Scallions

Swiss Chard

Kale (Red Russian, Curly, Tuscan)

Pea and Sunflower Shoots

Lettuce

Radish

Zucchini and Summer Squash

There is still a lot of stuff in the ground that we just got down recently or isn’t ready for picking yet. Although July Fourth is already over summer is only really just beginning and that means the crops will keep coming. Broccoli, melons, cucumbers,Β  cauliflower, and cabbage have yet to make an appearance. We can’t wait.

We appreciate everyone stopping by and saying hi and of course, shopping local. Produce and poultry tastes better when it’s local and it’s helping out our local economy as well. Produce that is shipped from long distances are usually picked before they are ripe in order for them to maintain for the long periods of time. A fruit or vegetable that has not been able to ripen properly doesn’t have the same flavor as one that has. Local is the way to go when and if you can.

If you haven’t seen it before, here is Sandi explaining the importance of farming. We’re proud of our farm and the work we do and this is just a small reason why.

 

Our Market schedule resumes this week as normal after the holiday. If you would like to know where to find us just follow the link:
