Those spring green spears will be in soon. There are two ways to get our asparagus this year:
- Join our CSA, with pickups starting the week of May 4.
- Come to the farm on Saturdays only, starting April 25, for retail asparagus sales.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we have made some changes to our annual asparagus sales that are designed to protect you and our workers.
The farm will be open for asparagus sales on Saturdays only, from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., starting April 25. On asparagus sale days, we will have our stand positioned on the driveway, halfway between U.S. 17 and the house. You can simply drive in and speak to our staff without getting out of your car. They will take your order, bring your asparagus and take payment from you. You may also park and walk to the stand if you prefer.
To ensure the cleanest, safest experience possible, we will be selling only pre-bagged asparagus at the following prices (which we have not changed for at least the past 5 years):
- 2-pound bag: $10
- 5-pound bag: $20
We will not be able to split 2-pound bags this year, and we will not have any other items for sale at this time. We do expect to have sugar snap peas and more spring produce as we get into June, and anticipate opening our larger farm stand later this summer.
If, in addition to purchasing asparagus, you would like to visit the farm with your family, you may do so and bring a picnic, explore our creeks, fields and trails. Admission is $5 per person, payable at the stand. We ask that you not come to the farm if you are sick, maintain at least 6 feet of distance from other parties and not come in groups of 10 or more.
While Saturdays will be for retail asparagus sales, Wednesdays will be for CSA members. CSA members get a weekly box of seasonal produce, and can stay to explore the farm (no admission charged for CSA members on Wednesdays). Full and small CSA shares are still available for purchase. Find more information here.
We are taking precautions on the farm to protect our employees and contribute to the public effort to contain the novel coronavirus, including frequent hand-washing, social distancing and staying home when sick. We hope that you and your family stay safe and well, and we look forward to once again being able to host larger gatherings at the farm once our country has come through this crisis.
