"Delectable" sweet corn truly is!

“Delectable” sweet corn truly is!

Our sweet corn is finally ready and will be available at our stand at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market tomorrow, Saturday, August 2. Delectable is a bi-color sweet corn that is tender, sweet and flavorful. It holds its sweetness for days and the ears are large this year. It is a non-GMO corn that we raise without sprays.

Also at Market, we have several varieties of tomatoes: Celebrity, our popular red slicer that is both solid AND tasty; Golden Sunray, a smooth round golden slicer for those who need a low-acid tomato (this is the one that Samuel grew back in the 80s and 90s); and Health Kick, a red Roma-type tomato that is high in healthful lycopene and excellent for sauce, salsa, paste, etc.

In addition, we will at times have a few other items, such as chard, cucumbers, summer squash, etc.

Look for these items and more at our Hickory Hill Farm stand at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market every Tuesday and Saturday from 8 AM to 1 PM.

We will have a limited suply of blueberries at the Market this Saturday, so please come early to be sure you get some. We will not have any berries at Market next Tuesday, but hope to have a small quantity again next Saturday. Also, we will have a small quantity of Roma and Celebrity tomotoes this Saturday, and our suply will be increasing over the next couple weeks, and we will be adding Golden Sunray to our selection, which is a yellow slicing tomato. We aniticipate having sweet corn in a week or two.

We expect to have a good supply of blueberries tomorrow and next Tuesday. We will also have some reduced berries available tomorrow, July 5. We have 19 flats of Patriot (12 pints per flat) which are very ripe and will need to be processed immediately, at a reduced price of $48 per flat ($4/pint).

We will have LOTS OF BLUEBERRIES tomorrow, Tuesday July 1, at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market from 8 AM until 1 PM unless we sell out sooner! We are offering quantity discounts, including a special price for buying two or more cases (12 pints/case): 4 pints for $19, 1 case for $55, 2 cases or more at $50/case. If, as expected, supplies hold up, we will offer the same quantity discounts on Saturday, 7/5. (Quantity discounts offered only while supplies are good.)

Fresh-picked blueberries from Hickory Hill Farm

We are now entering the peak of our blueberry season.  From tomorrow through Saturday, July 5, we expect to have a good supply of blueberries for sale at the Harrisonburg Farmers’ Market, and will be offering quantity discounts while supplies last.  If you want to buy berries by the case, now is a good time to get them.  We will probably continue to have blueberries at the market through mid or late July.


The blueberries are getting ripe, and our first day with berries at the Harrisonburg Farmers’ Market will be this Tuesday, June 17.  Come early, we expect to have a limited supply and sell out.  We will continue to have blueberries at the Market every Tuesday and Saturday morning for at least a month.


We’ve had a cool, wet spring and anticipate our blueberry crop will be ripening late this year. We exect to bring our first blueberries to market in mid to late June, and we’ll certainly give you an update as the time approaches.
