Farm Update 09-28-22

It’s coming down to the end of the season. Two more weekends left to go, and from what I’m seeing in the long-range forecast, it will be just in time. To be more specific, the last day the farm stand will be open for this season will be Monday, October 10th (Hours: 10 – 4), […]

Farm Update 09-22-22

Just a shorter update this week, since I can’t really think of a whole lot to write about. The weather has most definitely moved toward fall, and what is forecast for this weekend should leave no doubt about that. The crops in the field are all now winding down, and with the likelihood of a […]

Farm Update 09-15-22

The weather overall doesn’t seem to know what it wants to do just yet, whether we’ll see a little more warmth, or if it’ll tip over and finally go into fall. I suppose it may just wind up being one of “those” kinds of fall and winter, but honestly, who knows. I was able to […]

Farm Update 09-08-22

Labor Day has come and gone, so I guess this means the end of summer is truly here. Of course, as usual, this does not mean the end of the farm season is here, as crops like Potatoes, Winter Squash, Apples, and the anticipated fall crop of Pumpkins are just ramping up. According to my […]

Farm Update 09-01-22

I don’t know if it was a fast or a slow summer, but Labor Day weekend is upon us, so there’s not much point in being too concerned about it. Anyway, it’s not like this particular weekend will result in anything different about the work that has to be done on the farm. Still, I […]

Farm Update 08-25-22

September is approaching quickly, and there are still some crops that are just taking their sweet time to produce anything. In addition, the availability of certain crops at the market seems to be getting a little worse, whether it be local crops or the ones from California. Regardless, I’ll do my best to keep as […]

Farm Update 08-18-22

Let’s start off with what is currently the most anticipated news – Local APPLES are now available. There are just two varieties for this week, but you have to start somewhere. The two types are Early Honeycrisp (a new, early producing version of the regular Honeycrisp) and Zestar (an early sweet/tart variety). While I’m sure […]

Farm Update 08-11-22

Over the last couple of weeks quite a few people have asked me if I’ve ever seen the stream (the East Kill) running as low as it was. I had seen it lower, but it was many years ago. However, over the last few days, the stream now appears to have dropped to the lowest […]

Farm Update 08-04-22

So it looks like today is going to be a bit on the warmer side, with a good portion of the next week also running into the 80s, and accompanied by the possibility of thunderstorms. This is causing a bit of turmoil for my schedule, and will change some of the things I was planning […]

Farm Update 07-28-22

So, based on the current forecast, it looks like we’re going to be seeing a bunch of thunderstorms. Let’s hope there won’t be too many storms, so I can continue with the fieldwork, and when necessary, spray the field. There will be Fresh Chickens (whole and half) available this week, and then a few next […]
