Pumpkin Peak and Fall at the Farmstand!

Posted 10/21/2017 8:23am by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Happy weekend! 

Make sure to stop by the farmstand this weekend. We are stocked up for fall! The farmstand is full of all of your favorites and even better, there is PUMPKIN PEAK! 

There are pumpkins of all shapes and sizes - ones perfect for carving, decorating, even for that pumpkin decorating contest at school! Most of the Jack-o-Lanterns we grew here have been sold, so we are lucky enough that our organic farmer friends at Langwater Farm in Easton are providing the carving beauties and Upswing Farm is embellishing the sugar pumpkin stock! 

photo-op! Pumpkin peak is set up for you (or your little one) to pick your own pumpkin out while climbing some fun hay bales at the same time. And it's the perfect backdrop for a fall picture. 

Farmstand News

We're in our last week or so of the outdoor farmstand. Sunday, October 29th is the last outdoor farmstand day.  There is a short hiatus until the following Friday, when we will have moved across the street to the barn. 

Late Fall Hours in the Barn:
November 3 - December 17
Fridays: 10am to 6pm
Saturday & Sunday: 10am to 2pm
*Jordan Brothers Seafood truck will be there Fridays 2pm to 6pm and the whole time Sat & Sun!
It is also probably the last week of tomatoes! We put a risky late planting in one of our "caterpillar" tunnels and the weather has made it so there has actually been some late October tomato production! The rest of the tomatoes you see at the farmstand are coming from organic farmers, Kevin & Brittany Overshiner, of Upswing Farm. Enjoy the last few good-tomato sandwiches! We will all be missing them in a couple of months! 
We are also stocked up with greens galore and every variety you will need of winter squash! All of your fresh vegetable needs are here at the stand, so come by this weekend. 
  • Delicata, acorn, butternut, kabocha squash. 
  • Swiss chard, kale, spinach (YES! Spinach is back!!), mustard greens, salanova mix, arugula, all the greens you can want! 
  • Upswing Farm organically grown Potatoes and sweet potatoes
  • Sweet Peppers - seriously a rainbow!!
  • Herbs - Simon & Garfunkel Selection: parsley, sage, rosemary, & thyme
  • Radicchio, Head Lettuce
  • Celery Root, Fennel, Cabbage, Leeks
  • And so much more! 

*When you are at the stand, take a look at our freshly updated meat board. It's a one stop shop here! We've got some new cheese offerings, too: a yummy cow cheese spread and Narragansett grilling cheese. 

If you want to pick some zinnias and cosmos and a smattering of other specialty cut flowers this weekend, the endless summer has given the flower field an extension! Fill a mason jar for $10 and enjoy the experience of being in a flower field.

Thanksgiving Turkeys
Stay tuned for another email early this week about pre-ordering Thanksgiving Turkeys!! We'll be answering all of your questions (hopefully) and you'll be able to pre-order your free-range, locally raised turkey from Pat's Pastured Farm. They'll be available for a pick-up just before Thanksgiving. More on that soon! 
Enjoy this beautiful fall weekend!!
