End of the Season

Matthew Finkle

Another season comes to an end!

September 14th will be the last day that we will be open to the public for produce.

Our event business is flourishing and weekends are taken up by weddings and retreats.

As always, if anyone is in need of jams or prepared food for any occasion we are still here for you!

Thanks to all who made 2019 another great year!


Matthew Finkle

Just to let everyone know—-the tomatoes are ready and they are just beautiful this year!

We also have beans, cucumbers, kale, Swiss Chard, summer squash, scallions, lettuce, arugula, and assorted herbs—and of course, out great jams and preserves!

Hope to see you all tomorrow (Saturday) from 11-4


Matthew Finkle

We will be officially open for the season on June 29th 11-4.

This year we will only be open on Saturdays from 11-4 but if you are in the area you can always stop in on Sunday or any other day if you are looking for or in need of some great organic fare!


Matthew Finkle

We are still here! Busy planting during this beautiful spring. Nothing like last year… which was the worst!

Tomatoes have been planted. Spinach, radishes, leeks, sorrel, scallions, lettuce and asparagus are doing well. Kale and the broccolis are going in this week. All are looking forward to a great season!

The word about our party/shower space and wedding venue has spread and well received. Dates are filling up quickly— including 2020 wedding dates!

Our jam business is also doing well. We spent the winter developing new flavors. This year our new additions are: Blueberry Lavender, Blackberry Lemon Thyme and Peach Habanero.

So as you can see, things are hopping on the farm—including those bunnies!

Looking forward to a full opening the end of June. We may be open sporadically on Saturdays from 11-2 for prepared meals and vegetables that decide to be available. Keep checking here or on Facebook.


Matthew Finkle

They are late this year but they are now coming in strong.  Along with the tomatoes we also have our first corn to offer.  Beets, carrots, kale, Swiss Chard, leeks, summer squash have all greeted the new additions with excitement!  See you all Saturday and Sunday 11-4.


Matthew Finkle

We will now be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 11-4 for the month of August.  The rain has given us an abundance of veggies looking for a home!  Tomatoes are also starting to get ready.  Currently the yellow beefsteaks and the black krim are showing up.  Red ones to follow soon.  Hope you can stop by. 

Update 7/28/18

Matthew Finkle

We finally got some rain--didn't we! Maybe a little more than I needed but sure helped.

Cucumbers and summer squash are flourishing.  Cabbage loved it.  Tomatoes have grown about a foot and need to be cut back (hopefully tomorrow when it is dry). Slowly turning--not ready yet!

We are open every Saturday 11-4.  This week we have cucumbers, carrots, beets, summer squash, kale, Swiss chard, cabbage, scallions, leeks, fennel, assorted herbs and all of our delicious prepared food and jams.  Hope to see you all.

Another Great Day!

Matthew Finkle

We are open today, 6/16/18 from11-4.  Asparagus, fennel, kale, chard, lettuce....lots of stuff, including our quiches, soup and our signature jams.  Stop by.  Love to see you!

And So It Begins.....

Matthew Finkle

Finally, all the tomatoes and crops have been planted despite mother nature's delays.  3 weeks late but still plenty of time.

We are currently open on Saturdays 11-4 (except for June 9th when we are closed for a wedding).  Asparagus, kale, swiss chard, lettuce, sorrel, turnips and herbs are currently available along with our prepared meals, baked goods and of course, our jams and granola.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again! 

Looking Forward To Another Great Season

Matthew Finkle

Despite this uncertain weather, planting has begun. The wait is on for the asparagus, sorrel and spinach that waits for no one. In the meantime, The Farm will be open Saturdays from 11-2 until the end of June when we will be fully open for the season on Saturday and Sunday.  Currently we are offering prepared meals, baked goods, jams and other goodies.  Check out our "To Stay or Go" selections under our kitchen offerings for parties and get togethers. 

Almost Time!

Matthew Finkle

Seeds have been sorted and some have been ordered.  Planting seedlings will begin in February.  Today spinach and radishes are getting planted in the hoop house.

Some workshops have been scheduled.  Our most popular workshop for jam and jellies is the first.  Check out our workshops for Organic Gardening 101 which are also coming up soon.  In addition, our kids workshop coloring Easter Eggs using organic dyes and recycled materials was so much fun last year we will be offering it again.  


Season Updates

Matthew Finkle

We will be open this weekend 10/21 and10/22 and next weekend.  Our last day of the season will be 10/29.

After a short rest we will reopen on 11/11 and 11/18 and then again on 12/2 and 12/9.

Think of us for your holiday side dishes and of course, our jams as great gifts.  

October 7 & 8

Matthew Finkle

We will be closed this weekend for Private Parties.  We will reopen on October 14th. Sorry for the inconvenience.  Hope you come back on the 14th!

Fall Update

Matthew Finkle

Love this weather and this time of year! I does come with a bit of sadness knowing that the season will soon be over. But new veggies are emerging--carrots, Brussel sprouts, spaghetti squash(maybe), and all the summer favorites. Tomatoes will be over soon. We are still open every Saturday and Sunday 11-4.


Matthew Finkle

We are now open for the season every Saturday and Sunday from 11-4.  The Kale and Swiss Chard are ready as are collards, lettuce, radishes, fennel, sorrel and herbs.  Tomatoes in the hoop house are huge but not quite ready yet.  Fresh quiches, baked goods and of course our jams are all excited to be available.  Hope to see you soon!

And So It Begins!

Matthew Finkle

We are open today 11-4.  Lettuce, arugula, sorrel, radishes, and a limited offering of asparagus are on the produce menu.  Our kitchen is full of baked goods and provisions.  Quiches, fruit cobbler, bread, muffins, cookies, homemade granola and our jams are ready for a good home!  Hope to see you this weekend. 


Matthew Finkle

Finally, SPRING!  So many exciting things going on.  250 tomato plants are in the hoop house and thriving.  The other 300will go out when the spring nights are a bit warmer.  Asparagus and sorrel have popped through and fingers crossed that the fruit and berry blossoms will be spared by any unexpected freeze.

We have been very pleased with the turn out we are getting for our various events.  Our organic egg coloring workshop was a hit. Our Organic Gardening class went over so well we have another one scheduled for this Sunday April 30th from 1-3.  Not too late to sign up.  If you are interested in workshops and do not see them scheduled yet, contacted us.  We usually schedule them the beginning of each month. We will have a few Jam and Jelly workshops in May in preparation for the strawberry harvest. 

Time to get to work!

Matthew Finkle

Happy January everyone!  Now that the Holidays are over and we got some much needed down time, we are ready to start the season once again.  Before planting begins in February, we are getting back into the swing of things with prepared food and scheduled workshops.

We will be open this Saturday from 11-4 and other select Saturdays.  We have the following available:  Our popular quiches, baked goods, grain salads, soups and of course, our jams and delicious granola.  Some root vegetables are available also. Stop by.
