Here Is What We Do

In 2021 we hope to open with

  • greens, maple syrup, and the first fruits of our vines by Memorial Day. We should then have
  • tomatoes and veggies by Fourth of July,
  • sweet corn by mid-July,
  • honey by end of July,
  • peaches by mid-August,
  • pumpkins and squash by Labor Day,
  • hops and barley (and perhaps their first fruit, too) by end of September, and
  • cider, hard and fresh, by mid-October.

Here is more of what we do

There will be special sale days in the spring …

if the morels and the ramps cooperate.

Maple Syrup

Honey

Wine Grapes

Hops

Apples (for Cider)

Pumpkins (for cooking & decoration)

This is where we grow our produce, and where we process and store it

The Vegetable Garden

The Shed, Barn, & Greenhouse

Inside the greenhouse: peppers, almost ready to plant

Inside the shed: from the left: apple grinder, grape destemmer-crusher, bladder press, stove, maple syrup evaporator, pasteurizers, honey spinner

Finally, An Invitation

We are interested in providing a limited number of outdoor tent-covered tables for our neighbors on or near 1000 N to sell their own wares while we are open.

Good things might happen for us all.

Turning a Farm Stand into a Farmers Market is a bit more complicated than turning on a light, but it can be done if there is sufficient will to make it happen, and then to keep it going.
