It’s been a long winter this year and we sure are glad to start seeing some warmer weather! Warm weather brings fresh produce! Right now we have greenhouse tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and various canned goods. As the weather continues to warm up in the next few weeks we look forward to burpless cucumbers, asparagus, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, sweet onions, squash, new potatoes, and of course the number one thing everyone loves STRAWBERRIES!!
We have already started going to the markets in the area, here is the schedule.
Tuesday- Fearrington from 4pm- until
Thursday- Pittsboro from 3:30pm-6:30 pm
Saturday- Siler City from 9:30 am – 1pm
We will also be at the hospital every Wednesday starting on the first Wednesday in May from 7 am- 4pm!
Our stands hours will be changing as more produce becomes abundant but at this time we are open on Saturday 9am- 2pm and this week we will be open Monday – Friday from 12:30pm- 6pm. However keep an eye on our Facebook page as well as here on our website for any hour changes as it WILL change.
We also are proud to announce that our greenhouse tomatoes are now USDA GAP certified! We have been working hard and spending a lot of time in the last several months preparing for our audit to get our certification and we just had it last week and passed with perfect scores.
What else is going on at the farm? What isn’t? Gary’s busy season is in full force as he is getting ready for tobacco and other crops. He’s busy prepping the land and getting crops planted. His day starts early and ends late. However I did manage to grab a quick picture of him the other day before he headed to another field!
Thank you for taking the time to catch up with us! We hope to see you at the farm!
