HONEY AND MORE

Peaches from south of here, Pennsylvania and So. Carolina, are tangy sweet and juicy. Ripening may take a few days at room temperature.  New England peaches should be available again next year.  (Deep freeze in February wiped out the buds this year).

The bees have been bringing in nectar since April. The Loosestrife in the muddy Bowers Brook marsh, and our Sunflowers & pumpkin flowers, are providing forage now. We’ve spend the last 2 days extracting, for the 2nd time this summer, and there is more to come!
Gingergold and Gravenstein apples, the best of the early apples are here.

Bye Bye Berries!

Sad to say the blueberries are done for the year! We hope you had a chance to pick as much as you wanted. Southern peaches are at the stand along our honey. Gravensteins and Gingergold are packed up for you and ready for eating, or a really good pie!

We’ve moved…

We have opened the apple stand.  You’ll find peaches, early apples & honey ready to go.  Pick you own peaches is a shorter walk.  Pick your own blueberries is winding down.  It takes some time and determination but you can find a quart or more.  PYO apples will start in Sept.  Check back for an opening date!
