The Good News

We will, Lord willing, be opening a pick-your-own strawberries at our farm beginning this year. 

Many of you may know that our daughter, Sarah Keckler Reynolds, owns a little restaurant in Gardners, PA called the Twirly Top.  It is a seasonal burger and ice cream shop along route 34 at THE intersection to the lakes at Pine Grove furnace.  For years we had considered opening a  little market stand at her restaurant on Fridays and Saturdays, but we could not do it because we were all at market on Saturdays. Over Christmas vacation we were talking about it again and decided to open the stand this year.  It will give us a local fresh farm following and direct folks to our farm.

The Bad News

So with all that said, we will not be returning to the Westminster Farmer's Market this year.  We have been there for 13 years and have truly enjoyed the support and especially those who have been part of our CSA for many years. 

We wish you would all take a trip to come to the farm especially during strawberry harvest and peach season - when we are overloaded with good fruit.  You will always be welcome!

Keep in touch!
