Celebrate Autumn with us
Saying goodbye to summer is not easy after looking forward to it all winter but now it's time to welcome fall.
The cooler weather brings to the fore different crops and as with each season we look forward to the crops that we missed all summer. Now is the time to celebrate the return of lettuce for our winter salads; onions, garlic, potatoes and carrots for our casseroles and greens for health and vibrancy through the long winter months.
In our flower gardens we witness the transition to the fall colors of bronze and gold of beautiful mums and perennial grasses as they flutter in every breeze.
We are still harvesting our
veggies from the field and field greenhouses!

broccoli raab, carrots, kale, Swiss chard, lettuce, tomatoes, sweet peppers, eggplant along with garlic, onions & potatoes.

To accompany the produce we also have fresh eggs from pastured chickens, cheeses and a curated selection of natural gourmet foods to have on hand for those impromptu holiday gatherings with family and friends.

We are now offering shares in our Fall-Winter CSA
which will run from Nov. 2nd to December 28th.
Each weekly CSA share will include
a variety of fresh (extended) seasonal
organic produce grown here at

We will be open Friday through Sunday in November & December if you'd prefer to just come and shop when the spirit moves you.

Check out our selection of cool season vegetable starts...
Arugula, Spinach, Napa cabbage, Lettuce and our fabulous Garlic-the great multiplier-plant- one clove and get a whole head!
To protect your cool crops from the cold the
easy way is with
wire hoops and floating row covers.
We use this system in early spring and in the fall to give our crops
some protection from the cold, rain and even snow.
We have the hoops and row covers and even empty sand bags
to hold the covers in place

FALL is the time to fertilize our perennial gardens and lawns
Yes, now's the time give your gardens and lawns a
good meal before they settle down to rest for the winter.
Our friends at North Country Organics have a blend of
organic fertilizer for everything that grows.
We've been using them for years, the best food for your plants!

It just wouldn't look like FALL without a few Mums and
a bale or two of straw.
Maybe even a scarecrow to
complete the scene.
We can provide the mums and straw but we'll leave making the scarecrow to you.
