The recent stretch of warm weather has brought on a green tsunami of broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage at Hickory Hill Farm! We have a lot that will be ready for harvest now and next week, October 7-12. So, in addition to all that I said in my previous post, we are taking advance orders for large quantities of broccoli and cauliflower as follows:

BROCCOLI: $20/half bushel, $35/bushel.

CAULIFLOWER: $25/bushel.

CABBAGE will remain “Buy 1 head, get 2nd at $1 off.”

To place your advance order, (1) sign up at the Hickory Hill Farm stand at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market, (2) call Samuel at the farm at 540-269-8261, or send him an email (blueberries.smwj@gmail.com). Orders may be picked up at the farm near Keezletown or at the Farmers Market.

Or just stop at our stand at the Market and see if Grant has enough on hand to sell you a bushel or half bushel on the spot!

For additional information about current crops and our Farmers Market stand, see our previous post.

We’ve had great weather this year for our Fall cole crops: cauliflower, cabbage, kale and broccoli. The cooler than usual summer temperatures and frequent rains are ideal for these crops, making the plants in the field big and beautiful and the harvest abundant and of high quality!

Beginning Saturday, Sept. 7, we will have a large display of winter squash, cauliflower, green cabbage and kale with the addition of broccoli on Tuesday, Sept. 10. We will soon have savoy cabbage and red cabbage as well. We think you will agree with many of our customers that our fresh, homegrown cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage and kale is about the best you’ve ever had–tender and tasty!

We still have Fredonia grapes (an early Concord-type), and expect the genuine, old-time Concords to start up about Sept. 14. We also have red tomatoes, but we won’t have sweet corn again until about Sept. 14.

All these items and more from Hickory Hill Farm, available at our stand at the center of the Harrisonburg Farmers Market, every Tuesday and Saturday, 7 AM to 1 PM. Y’all come!
