At the Farm: Aug 20-26

our plumsWow, August abundance is here, no doubt.  The challenge is just how to enjoy it all!  Just how many meals can include fresh, delicious tomatoes?

And for the first time we have our own organic plums for sale!  An orchard is an investment and we have been waiting 6 years, but we have a great batch and some for sale.  We also have some Dolgo crabapples, which are super high in pectin so great for processing with other fruit, but they also have their own lovely tart apple flavor and can be enjoyed in the same ways as apples.

Any items marked with “Lots” is available in processing volumes.  If you plan to do so let us know and we will harvest extra.
