News from the farm

Did I promise the end of the peppers last week?  I think I did, but the pepper plants had other plans.  So here, fully into the first week of November, we present you with 4 more peppers!  It's amazing, really.  And more of the wonderful brassicas you all loved last week....and a nice quart of sweet potatoes for roasting in your oven on a cold night. 

We expected a freeze here on Sunday night, but were pleasantly surprised when it didn't happen!  We lose our tender crops in a freeze, so luckily we may have a little more time to harvest them before another freeze warning comes our way.  (Our cold weather crops can be harvested through mid-December despite freezing temps!)

WINTER SHARES ARE NOW AVAILABLE!   

We are now accepting applications for our Winter CSA.  The program consists of 5 deliveries from December through March (every 3 weeks) with pick-ups at the farm in Jamesport, and in Manhasset and Port Washington.  Our locations for pick-up are limited during the winter since the produce needs to be kept indoors where it won't freeze!  LEARN MORE HERE.
