Crop Report: Farm Fresh Tomatoes
Thanks for checking in! We hope you're all staying cool. We are really looking forward to some cooler weather this weekend! Full list of produce available in our Farm Market to follow.
We are in the heart of tomato season! So many delicious vine-ripened, locally grown tomatoes to choose from. Some of our favorites this summer have been Cherokee Purple heirlooms and heirloom grape tomatoes. What sets Cherokee Purple tomatoes apart? Cherokee purple tomatoes have a very deep and unique tomato flavor. However, we don't think you could go wrong with any type of garden fresh tomato. There's nothing like them!
A couple produce SPECIALS happening now:
For those of you who are interested in canning tomatoes this season, now is the time! We have an abundance of locally grown red canning tomatoes. We are selling them by the 25 pound box for $12. (as supplies last)
25 pound boxes of Pennsylvania Red Haven peaches are currently on special for $25 a box. (25 pound boxes are typically $35) They are excellent for freezing and canning! (as supplies last)
We are still harvesting peaches from our orchard. We hope you have been enjoying them as much as we have! Peaches will be available in our Farm Market up until Labor Day.
We love to make our own salsas! This recipe for Heirloom Tomato Pico is simple and delicious. Enjoy it on tacos, burgers or just as a dip with tortilla chips. We love how beautiful the different colors of heirloom tomatoes make this dish. The recipe uses mango but we substituted it with diced peaches, yum!
Caprese salad is our summer go to. So easy to throw together and just delicious. Try adding heirloom tomatoes to your next caprese salad, it's a game changer! Recipe below photos.
We hope you have a wonderful weekend! Summer Farm Market Hours: Monday - Friday: 10 - 6 Saturday 9 - 5 Sunday 11 - 5
