At our market in the vintage barn, we sell a wide variety of our own pesticide-free produce grown in accordance with Northeast Organic Farming Association practices, available in season to the public at the farm.

THE SEASON: Our season begins the Saturday after Independence Day and ends sometime in October. (Gary makes the call based on the weather, the traffic at the barn, and how the crops are faring in the fall weather. In 2013, October 13 was the last day.) Often the hours switch to weekend-only before the very end of the season. Sometimes an unexpected blizzard calls an abrupt halt to the season. So don't wait till October to visit the Garlic Farm for the first time! Sign up for our newsletter to have advance notice of the closing for the season.

Sign up for the e-newsletter (blue button in the column to the left) to receive news about the farm, tips for using our veggies, photos, and more. The general newsletter appears about once a week during the season Special interest newsletters go out only when there's something to say to the people who have signed up for those newsletters, such as the CSA details for prospective CSA shareholders in the spring or the scape season alerts in June.

CSA pickups ended October 5, 2013.
Sign up for the CSA Info newsletter if you want details about the 2014 CSA program once Gary has worked them out. Gary will send out info about the CSA signups for returning members and new shareholders in spring of 2014. Use the blue Join button to the left to sign up for any of our e-mailed newsletters.
