Fresh from the field this week we have our first harvest of Sweet Potatoes! We are pleased with how well the crop did and look forward to enjoying the plentiful and delicious harvest in the weeks to come. Our winter squash varieties are beautiful, delicious, and plentiful. Varieties include Butternut, Sweet Dumpling, Acorn, and more! The veggie field continues to produce wonderful harvests of green beans, rainbow chard, and sugar snap and snow peas. Onions, garlic, and peppers are still in abundant supply. We have our first picking of baby kale in from the greenhouse! The last harvest of tender cauliflower is limited but delicious. We look forward to harvesting yacon and two varieties of popping corn next week!
From the orchard we have a flavorful selection of apples. Available varieties include Macintosh, Cortland, Honey Crisp, Snow Sweet, and more! We still have Asian Pears and utility peaches available. Our utility peaches are on sale for $1 a pound until they are gone! Utility peaches are perfect for making jams, cobblers, canning, or infusing.
Cider is in! We press fresh cider weekly. We have gallons, half-gallons, and pints available. We are now using Ultraviolet light to prevent bacteria from growing in the cider. This does not affect the taste and as always there are no preservatives. Please refrigerate the cider- UV only slows yeast down, it does not eliminate it. The cider should keep for two weeks in the refrigerator.
We have a wonderful selection of colorful, hardy potted Mums available at the farmstand. From now until the end of the season, buy four Mums and get the fifth free! A beautiful harvest of colorful ornamental corn and gourds came in this week along with a great selection of pumpkins including fancy and jack-o-lantern varieties. We have everything you need to make a stunning fall display on your front porch or your dining table!
We are now shipping apple gift boxes! Our orchardist hand picks the best apples available and we pack them with a bottle of our syrup or honey and send them out to your loved ones for you. What a great way to share the joy of fresh Maine apples with friends and family from away! Please call our farmstand at (207) 647-9419 to order or for more information.
Fresh from the kitchen we have a wonderful selection of apple baked goods including our apple blondies, chewy apple almond cookies, and our latest creation, a wood-fired apple galette. We also have traditional favorites like apple crisp, apple pie, apple muffins, and apple jam. For breads we have freshly baked Maple-Oat and a traditional White Sandwich loaf this week.
