HOMEGROWN PRODUCE sold in the market begins with sweetcorn starting early August-September followed by peaches & nectarines (homegrown depending on availability) August to mid-September. The earliest homegrown apples are ready mid August and are available throughout the winter. Normally we’d have homegrown pears, plums and nectarines, but many did not survive the 2020 freeze. The 2020 season was hit hard with a freeze during bloom, around Mother’s Day. We will feature Southern, then Eastern peaches until mid August when our Contender peaches will be available. We will also be purchasing some varieties of apples for the market as some of our more popular varieties were killed in the freeze (Honeycrisp, Evercrisp, Fuji).
LOCAL VEGETABLES grown by the Amish include onions, tomatoes, zucchini, squash, cabbage, broccoli, Brussel sprouts and more! Locally grown salad and herb bowls are available in the summer and early fall. Starting in mid-September there’s an abundance of winter squash and various kinds of pumpkins. In October we carry Ohio chestnuts.HOMEMADE Cider, UV light treated with NO preservatives is available once our apples are ready. You’ll find ciders made from a blend of apples, as well as HONEYCRISP cider (limited supply). Late October we will have our award winning GOLDRUSH cider.
