NEW ITEMS this week!

Sugar Snap Peas

Snow Peas (flat pod)          
either of these kinds of peas steamed or sauted with spring onions is GREAT!

We have spinach, spring onions, radishes,

lettuce, salad greens, asparagus and spearmint tea.

I have been grilling asparagus with a little olive oil and garlic. Delicious!

Arugala, stored potatoes.

 Breaburn apples, Pink Lady apples, Gold Rush apples,  and sweet Fuji apples. 

We have our own sweet breads - Banana, Pumpkin, and Zucchini.

Don't forget the Memorial Day Picnics!

Homemade pies - Cherry, Peach and Strawberry/Rhubarb

We make our own jams and jellies and natural applesauce.

Get ready for the grill!

We have BEEF!  Our own lean pasture-raised beef grown slooowly the way it should be!

Steaks and ground beef!

We have pork - steaks, chops and 7 inch links.  Our hogs are raised on grass/woodlands.  They love rooting under leaves and eating acorns.  I have been grilling these sausages every Saturday for a while.  They are better tasting and BETTER for you than hot dogs. 

free range EGGS from our own chickens!

We will also be offering cheese from Whispering Brook Farm.  Ed Breckbill makes his own cheese at his farm in Chambersburg, PA.  His cheeses are delicious with a short list of ingredients:  unpasturized milk, vegetable enymes, sea salt.  Check out his cheeses!

Check out the bedding plants!  Herbs, tomato plants, and flowers!

 We are looking forward to seeing folks on Saturday, May 26. 

Stop in, look around and take home some fresh greens, vegetables, strawberries and baked goods!
