Breakfast

Lunch

  • Vegetable bulgur salad (You can put this kind of lunch salad together with whatever vegetables you have. So this week, I’d saute squash and okra and maybe add some roasted chopped sweet potatoes or fresh sliced peaches. It’s very versatile and can be packed for the office.)
  • Summer squash pannini

Freestone peaches…worth the wait!

14988895771_e254b90672_z

Our big, beautiful freestone peaches are finally in! We grow two types of peaches: clingstone and freestone. The clingstones are always the first to ripen. They are delicious, but smaller and in some ways better for eating out of hand than slicing for recipes, because the flesh clings to the stone on the inside (hence the name).

But as of July 14, we are fully into freestone season. Freestone peaches are bigger, tastier, and ideal for pies, cobblers, salads, canning, freezing and other preparations, because the flesh pops so easily off the stone.

We are selling peaches at our special 1…2…FREE pricing, meaning you can get three quarts ($5 apiece) for $10 here at the farmstand.

You can also buy a half-bushel box of peaches for $35.

Come get a sweet taste of summer!

Also: Watermelons have come in! We’ve got large, seedless watermelons for $5 apiece!

Our stand is open every day, 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
