It’s coming down to the wire now, with just this weekend to round out the season. It also looks like the leaves will be right around peak color for the weekend, at least in the Jewett valley. And the weather sure has gone from summer to late fall/early winter with the temps as low as they’ve been. Thankfully the forecast for the weekend was updated and is now no longer calling for possible snow showers on Saturday morning.
Please note that the farm stand will be OPEN on Monday 10/10 from 10-4. This is also the last day the stand will be open for the season.
In the field it’s now a matter of getting things ready for winter. The weather has made it virtually impossible to dig any additional Potatoes, though if I can get them out of the ground in a timely fashion I may pack them into 5 and 10 pound bags and send out an update, so be sure to check out the What’s Available page and keep an eye out for future updates. As had been the procedure for a number of years now, I will keep the What’s Available page updated until a little before Christmas, so if there is something you would like to get that I still have, please feel free to get in touch to arrange a time to come by the farm.
There will be Fresh and Frozen Chicken available this weekend, and this will be the last of the Fresh Chickens for the season. The Laying Chickens are doing great, and about half of them will be around on the farm until some time in December. The rest are being re-homed to a farm I’ve dealt with in the past, since they are looking for extra hens, and in December the others will join them at the other farm.
As of right now I have all the types of Preserves except Cranberry, and I don’t think I’ll have time to make it before the weekend. I was able to get the Strawberry-Rhubarb made last week, and it sold quite well. Many of the other Preserves are running low; so if you are looking to stock up, don’t wait. Again, after the stand closes, you can always check the What’s Available page to see if I have any what you may be looking for, and then get in touch with me.
That’s it for this week. I would like to thank all of you who have come by and helped support the operation of the farm. Have a great week, and if I am not going to be seeing you until next season, have a wonderful winter.
