Corn is Ready for Pickin'!
Good morning all……..
Not sure, but it feels like a little bit of FALL in our mornings? Well at least Monday and Tuesday morning… for sure the sleeping has been a bit easier. Our TENTRR site is hopping with campers from “away” who have all come to Maine enjoy our fabulous state. If TENTRR is of interest to you, , you can go to their site and look at what this company offers and my site (Hill Top Camp at Valley View Farm).
We have had delivered another 100 foot long high tunnel to help extend our gardens and our undercover growing options! Delivered in pieces, it will go up like a giant erector set (remember those from our childhood?), and will be another great addition to our farm and food offerings!
Order can be placed now for the 10 pound boxes of native Maine blueberries. $30.00 per box, these tiny berries are full of flavor, and I put them directly into the freezer and scoop handfuls all winter long. They are very clean (always a few greenies and some stems) and come from unsprayed fields. Please let me know if you’d like a box or two or more, we will only have availability on them for the next 10-14 days . Our high bush cultivated blueberries are still producing, I expect we will have our last picking of them this week.
AND , drum roll please………. Corn! Now being picked, this is the pinnacle of our season, the high point, the penultimate crop that everyone waits for. Sugar and gold is the variety, sweet and delicious.
Finally, farmers’ markets are in full swing, we have been trying to work steadily towards opening our own little farm store, and while hoping to open for this week, looks like we will hold off until next week. The shop hours will be Thursday and Friday 2-5 AND Saturday 10-2. Come take a drive and visit, all our meats and vegetables will be available and we’d love to have you !
We appreciate your support of local foods, our excellent small Maine farms and farmers’ markets ( of course). And I look forward to hearing from you!
