Schedule Change For This Week

A quick note to mention, due to some much-needed down time, we will not be open for drive up or online ordering Thursday to Saturday. We will be opening Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Since many of you usually pickup or drive up later in the week, please adjust your plans accordingly. Along with everything from last week, we do have a limited amount of long slicers and pickler cucumbers this week on a first come first serve basis. This usually means the people who order online have the best chance of getting these incredibly tasting cukes. Sorry for the schedule change, but trust me, it’s necessary. Mark

We picked the last of the spinach and arugula and as always, it will be available today until we sell out. New arrivals this week will be a fan favorite from the last few years: scapes. For those who don't know, scapes are the center flowering stem from garlic. We harvest scapes before they flower and package them as a small bunch. Scapes taste like a mild garlic and they are great in any dish that you would normally use garlic cloves. The list of items this week include: Butterhead Red romaine Bibb Baby Leaf lettuce Arugula (limited) Kale Swiss chard Oregano Snow
