Enjoy the fruits of summer while you can!

Peach season is moving right along.  We currently have our tree-ripened white-fleshed and yellow-fleshed freestone peaches at the market.  The white-fleshed variety has a tropical flavor; it’s both lovely and tasty when combined with blueberries and/or traditional yellow-fleshed peaches.  We still have plenty of our own vine-ripened cantaloupe and watermelons, and we currently have local blueberries, but the season will end soon.  Our vine-ripened tomatoes are now tasty and looking good!   We now have some late-summer apples from our orchards; Zestar! (the father of SweeTango(R)) and Gingergold are now ripe.  Look for our SweeTango(R) apples by September 1!

Enjoy our own watermelon and cantaloupe!

We’ve just started harvesting some of our watermelon, grown right on our farm in Oceana County!  The early and hot weather has brought them to the point of sweet and juicy ripeness!  We have personal-size (about the size of a soccer ball) as well as the traditional size watermelons.  We also are well into our cantaloupe season, and they are aromatic, sweet, juicy and flavorful!  You can select personal-size (about the size of a softball) or traditional size melons; all are good!  Dave loves melons, so he selects the best varieties to grow, and nurtures them with care.  He trains our workers to pick the melons at their peak quality and ripeness, so you know you’ll get a good one, whichever you select!  If you try to shop local, it doesn’t get more local than this!
