We have lots of tomatoes that we need to get rid of, and this is your chance to stock up for the winter ahead!  We will have tomatoes at our stand at the Harrisonburg Farmers’ Market for our standard price of $2.75/lb, and will also be adding a bulk discount on Tuesday, August 16 and Saturday, August 20 of $1/lb when you buy 25lbs (about a half bushel) or more, while supplies last.  This discount applies only to our Celebrity tomatoes, a classic red slicer variety.  We will also have some heirloom yellow tomatoes and San Marzano paste tomatoes available at the regular price.

We still plan to have corn at market every Tuesday and Saturday for a few more weeks.  And we will soon have grapes as well, probably starting this Saturday, the 20th.

We will have an abundance of no-spray sweet corn for sale at the Harrisonburg Farmers’ Market tomorrow, Tuesday the 9th of August.  In fact, we have enough that we are adding a BULK DISCOUNT to our price for ONE DAY ONLY.  Our standard price is $3.50 for a half dozen, $7 for a baker’s dozen (13 ears), and tomorrow we will offer five dozen for $30.  This will be available on a first come, first served basis, or you can reserve your order by phone and pick it up at the market between 8am and 1pm.  Call Hannah at 269-6251.

We will also have plenty of tomatoes for sale at market for $2.75/lb.

Sweet corn and tomatoes are now ready at Hickory Hill Farm and will be available at our stand at the Harrisonburg Farmers’ Market starting this Saturday, July 30, 2016.

Our sweet corn variety is “Delectable,” a non-GMO sweet bicolor corn with large ears, raised with NO PESTICIDES!

We have red slicing tomatoes, yellow and yellow striped slicing tomatoes, and San Marzano paste tomatoes.  Supply is limited at this time, but the abundance will certainly be increasing in weeks to come!

We also have garlic, raised with NO PESTICIDES.  It is a freshly harvested hard neck variety with large cloves and excellent flavor.

We will NOT be at the market this coming Tuesday, August 2, but plan to be there every Tuesday and Saturday after that into the fall.  We expect our supply of corn and tomatoes to increase in the coming weeks, and last into September.  We also expect a good crop of concord and concord type grapes starting mid to late August, followed by sorghum molasses in the fall.
