Wanted to give you a quick update to let you know we are beginning to fill out the market with summer produce. We now have a good supply daily of blueberries, green beans, onions, red potatoes, zucchini and yellow summer squash. We are just beginning to bring in bell peppers and sweet banana peppers. We are picking corn pretty much every day, but every now and then we run into a gap where the next planting is not quite ready, so you may want to call ahead to make sure we have corn. Tomatoes are continuing to be very stubborn in ripening this year, seems to me we gave them plenty of hot weather this past week! We still have not picked one yet from our field, so to keep tomatoes available to you, we are bringing them in from another grower in Indiana out of their greenhouse.
Freezing and Canning quantities: Many of you are asking about getting larger quantities for freezing or canning on things like blueberries, beans, corn, tomatoes, etc. We are happy to take your name and phone number and call you when we can pick those for you. 269-244-5690.
So, since we don’t have a lot to report this week, I thought I would invite you to view a short video that has been posted on our website that you may not be aware of. The BPA group from Sturgis High school made a wonderful video this year called “America’s Heartland.” They tried to select a range of different types of farming and farmers to be featured in the video and asked myself and my son Jay to participate. We were honored to participate and want to thank and congratulate the Sturgis High BPA group on their award winning video. They won 2nd place at the National competition! Take a few minutes and click the link below to see it.
So, have a safe and wonderful weekend and thanks as always, for supporting us by buying fresh, local produce and other goods from us. Hope to see you soon.
