It’s November and we still have vine ripe tomatoes available! These seconds don’t look perfect, but they are just right for sauce, soup, canning, etc. With the cold weather coming, you’ll be glad to have a well-stocked larder with delicious tomatoes to enjoy through the winter. The price is $1.60/lb with a minimum order of 10lb. Available for pickup in Keezletown, or delivery for a small fee may be available. Please call or text Hannah at 540-269-6251.

We will be at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market this Saturday from 8am to 1pm with tomatoes, onions, garlic, and sorghum. Our tomato selection includes classic red slicers, several heirloom varieties, paste tomatoes, and assorted gourmet cherry tomatoes. Look for us in stall #7, by the corner near the Ice House.

Coming soon, we will have Concord grapes, as well as sweet peppers and various heirloom chiles starting later in August.

We will be at market every Saturday through mid-October.

Call or text 540-269-6251 to place a bulk order of tomatoes at a discounted price for pick-up at the farmers market or on the farm in Keezletown.

 

We are disappointed to announce that our blueberry season has already ended. Due to a late freeze we had a very small crop, and we are so sorry that we didn’t have enough berries for everyone to get their fill this year. Thanks to everyone who did come out to pick, we really appreciate you being understanding of the circumstances. We are hoping for a bumper crop in 2021. See you then!

 

UPDATE: We are picked out of blueberries for today, July 10. We may have another day of picking next week.

We will be open for blueberry picking on Friday, July 10, from 8am until we are picked out. We have a very limited supply of berries at this time. We hope to have another day of picking next week.

Due to a hard freeze in mid-May our 2020 blueberry crop will be starting later than usual. Our earliest varieties, which had already set little green berries when temperatures dropped to 23° F on May 10, have been the hardest hit and will not produce fruit this year. Our mid-season and late varieties were still in bloom at the freeze, and suffered less damage. It is difficult to anticipate the size of our crop at this time, so please stay posted for more updates to come as the berries ripen. We do expect to have U-pick opportunities as well as limited quantities of pre-picked berries starting in late June and lasting through mid-July.

Our blueberry bushes are in full bloom, and we anticipate another excellent blueberry crop this summer.  Blueberry season typically lasts from early June to mid-July, and we look forward to providing you with safe opportunities to pick your own delicious, naturally grown blueberries amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.  Please watch for more information about picking as the crop begins to ripen in June.

Thanks for supporting your local farmers and businesses in these difficult times of health and economic crises.
