We expect Saturday, Nov. 14, to be our last day at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market for the 2015 season. Stock up on Hickory Hill Farm products while you can. Grant will have plenty of several varieties of winter squash, just what you need for holiday pies, desserts and other dishes. While supplies last, he will offer quantity discounts on winter squash. We will also have broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and kale. Come and get it while you can! And thank you so much for your patronage this season.

We have a wide variety of WINTER SQUASH available and we want to offer our customers a chance to stock up for the winter on Saturday, Nov. 7, when Grant will offer bulk discounts on it at our stand at the Farmers Market. Winter squash keeps very well without refrigeration in a cool, dry place. If you stock up while the supply is good, you can enjoy it over the winter.

We will also have the following items at our stand: BROCCOLI, CABBAGE, CAULIFLOWER & KALE. All at the Hickory Hill Farm stand at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market, currently only on Saturday mornings, from 8 AM to 1 PM.

We’ll have a good supply of BROCCOLI, both large heads and florets, at Market on Saturday, Oct. 31. So if you’ve been waiting for these big heads, here’s your chance to stock up. We’ll also have a good supply of CAULIFLOWER, CABBAGE, KALE and WINTER SQUASH.

PLEASE NOTE: HICKORY HILL FARM WILL ONLY BE AT MARKET ON SATURDAYS FROM NOW UNTIL OUR SEASON ENDS. We will NOT be present at Market on Tuesdays. So be sure and get your week’s supply when you come on Saturdays. Depending on weather and the supply in the field, we expect to have most or all of the items mentioned above available over the next few Saturdays. I’ll try to keep you posted.

Wet weather abundance!

Wet weather abundance!


All this wet weather has made an abundance of large, crisp heads of cauliflower and cabbage with mild flavor!

TOMORROW, Saturday October 3, Grant will have an abundance of CAULIFLOWER and CABBAGE at our Hickory Hill Farm stand at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market, and he will be offering DISCOUNT PRICES on purchases of multiple heads of CABBAGE and CAULIFLOWER. BUY ONE HEAD AT THE REGULAR PRICE AND GET ANY NUMBER OF ADDITIONAL HEADS AT $1 OFF EACH ADDITIONAL HEAD, MIX AND MATCH, CAULIFLOWER & CABBAGE! Or, if you want to purchase it by the bushel, ask Grant for the bushel price discount. Stock up now while supplies are abundant. Discount prices apply only while supplies are good.

Also at our stand, you will find BROCCOLI, KALE, and RED, GREEN & SAVOY CABBAGE; a wide variety of colorful and tasty WINTER SQUASH; and tomatoes. Look for us at our Hickory Hill Farm stand at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market, tomorrow and every Tuesday and Saturday, 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

Kale is easy to blanch and freeze for eating over the winter.

Kale is easy to blanch and freeze for eating over the winter.


Our kale patch is currently very productive and we expect that to continue as long as the weather is mild. That means that we have enough at this time to sell it by the bushel to those who want a quantity to freeze. Kale is easy to freeze, requiring only one or two minutes in boiling water before chilling, draining and placing in freezer bags or containers. And our kale is grown using only natural fertilizers and organic approved sprays, so you don’t have to worry about spray residues.

While supplies last, Grant is offering a DISCOUNTED BULK PRICE OF $25/BUSHEL ON ORDERS TO BE PICKED UP AT THE FARM ON A WEDNESDAY OR THURSDAY AND ORDERED THE DAY BEFORE. TO PLACE YOUR ORDER AND ARRANGE A PICKUP TIME, CONTACT GRANT BY EMAIL AT: dyrtfarmer@gmail.com. BUY YOUR KALE IN BULK FOR FREEZING NOW WHILE WE HAVE AN ABUNDANT SUPPLY!

ALL THIS AND MORE EVERY TUESDAY AND SATURDAY FROM 8:00 AM TO 1:00 PM AT THE HARRISONBURG FARMERS MARKET!

Our fall “COLE” CROPS – BROCCOLI, CAULIFLOWER, CABBAGE AND KALE – are now in full swing at the farm, especially the CABBAGE, in RED, GREEN, and SAVOY varieties. We have so much cabbage ready at once now that Grant is offering QUANTITY DISCOUNTS ON CABBAGE – buy multiple heads of any combination of red, green and savoy cabbage and get a price break! Now is the time to stock up to make sauerkraut or to prepare stuffed cabbage for freezing! CAULIFLOWER is good for pickling, by itself or with other vegetables, and BROCCOLI and KALE can be blanched and frozen to eat later when the fresh season is over.

Grant also has lots of beautiful and tasty WINTER SQUASH varieties on hand. Enjoy it in arrangements around the house for a while and then eat it after you are done with it as decoration!

CONCORD GRAPES are still available for the next week or so. They are good and sweet, and make wonderful juice, jam, jelly, wine and desserts (including pies) as well as good eating just as they are! Get them while you can!

And of course we still have our TOMATOES (RED & YELLOW SLICERS, and RED PASTE) and SORGHUM SYRUP. COME AND SEE US AT THE MARKET AND STOCK UP ON GOOD THINGS!

IF YOU WANT AN EXTRA LARGE QUANTITY OF ANY OF THE ABOVE, PLEASE PLACE AN ORDER IN ADVANCE by talking with Grant at Market or calling Samuel at 540-269-8261.

We’ll have some NEW ITEMS ON OUR STAND at the Farmers Market starting Saturday, 8/15/15! Our grape crop looks really good this year, and the WORDEN GRAPES – a flavorful early blue grape – are now available. They will soon be followed by our Fredonia grapes, our other early Concord type. We will also have our first big picking of KALE, in a new variety we are planting that is remarkably tender and tasty for harvest at this time of year!

DELECTABLE SWEET CORN will still be available now through Saturday 8/22/15.

Our TOMATO patch is producing some real winners this year! Our CELEBRITY SLICING TOMATOES have won blue ribbons at the Tomato Fest for two years in a row, as the best in the Standard Slicer category. We also have SAN MARZANO plum tomatoes, an heirloom variety “considered by many chefs to be the best of its kind in the world” (Wikipedia). It has thicker flesh, fewer seeds and more flavor than the popular “Roma”, making it unsurpassed for paste and cooking. And we also have “Big Rainbow”, another heirloom variety with flesh that is yellow mixed with red.

Look for all this tomorrow, Saturday 8/15/15, and on following Tuesdays and Saturdays, 8 AM to 1 PM, at our Hickory Hill Farm stand at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market.
