Farm Update 10-01-20

Just a quick update for this week, because I still have loads of work still to do and only just realized what time it is.

As many of you know, most of my veg finished up with the freezes we had last week, though I do still have a few things of my own. Most of the stuff at the stand is coming in from other farms, with as many items being locally sourced as I can manage.

Local Brussel Sprouts are finally available this week. And this week will also see the last of the Local Blueberries, of which I only managed to get 3 flats. There are loads of different Pumpkins and Gourds for holiday decorating or pumpkin carving.

For those who have been looking to get some more Preserves, I was able to get a batch of Strawberry-Rhubarb and one of Peach made this week. There are still very low supplies of the others for now, as far more people are stocking up than I had expected. I will be doing my best to get even more made for next week, though when they are made will depend on when my order of pectin arrives.

Additionally, I have decided that the stand will remain open until Halloween weekend (10/30 – 11/01). After that, anyone who would still like to get Eggs or Preserves would need to get in touch with me.

Lastly, given the number of orders I still have pending for Chickens, I will no be accepting any additional advance orders at this time. I do have a small number of Frozen Chickens, but there will only be a few Fresh ones available this week and they will be on a first come basis.

I think that’s everything for this week. I hope you all enjoyed the 24 hours (Sun – Mon) of peak foliage this year, as the leaves in this part of the Jewett valley are now into the browning stage. Hope you all have a great week.
