These are exciting days on Meshacket Road as we ready the farmstand for another year. We traditionally open on the first Friday in May, which in 2017 is May 5. Along with our other groceries, coffee and tea to go and the new kombucha bar, here are the farm and garden crops we expect to have on hand when we welcome customers back at 9 a.m. that day:

  • Salad greens
  • Head lettuce
  • Micro greens
  • Radishes
  • Pea tendrils
  • Sunflower shoots
  • Russet potatoes from our root cellar
  • New cuts of pork and beef
  • Eggs
  • Loads of spring transplants for your home garden
  • A full selection of bedding plants from Heather Gardens

Asparagus could be on the list as well. We might be able to start harvesting as early as May 1, or as late as May 10. Only time and the weather — which has been very rainy in April — will determine whether we open with asparagus or not.

 And Save these dates for our festivals and more!
