Welcome to the blog
Posted 11/17/2014 6:50am by Gregg Keckler.

This is the LAST CHANCE to order any apples to be delivered to the Westminster Farmer's market, East Columbia Library, or any of the Wednesday drop offs.

 

PLEASE NOTE: We will still be having the Farm Stands at NGS and St Luke's until December 20

We have LOTS, LOTS, LOTS of APPLES!

Honeycrisp apples are a sweet, crisp apple.

Granny Smith are a tart crisp apple.

Suncrisp are a tart, crisp  yellow apple.

Braeburn are a tart, crisp apple.

Fuji are sweet, crisp apple.

Jonagold are sweet, soft apples.

Stayman Winesap are crisp and tart.

Pink Lady are crisp (hard) and tart.

Gold Rush are crisp and tart.

 

 

All of these apples make great eating apples.  They are also great for pies, crisps and baking ,as they will hold their shape very well.  DO NOT USE THEM FOR SAUCE!  They are too crisp for sauce.

If you want apples for sauce, please let us know.  We have excellent sauce apples as well for the same great deal!

 

You can ask for a mix of apples in each half bushel or you can just order a half bushel of one kind - take your pick!

DO NOT PLACE YOUR ORDER FOR THE APPLE SPECIAL ON THE STORE - email me and I will take your order.  The store can not give you the discount!

Keep  these apples  in mind if you are buying items for a school or organization.  These are delicious and we will give you a REAL DEAL!

There are approximately 40 apples to a half bushel - if you buy more them one half bushel we will sell them to you for $10 per half bushel.  Let me know via email if you want to buy some in quanity and I will order them for you. 

If you buy them from the store the normal price is $15 per half bushel.

 

Sorry, but we can no longer deliver to DOT or Cedar Lane!

Dear Folks,

  This week's shares will include:

Spaghetti squash

Nittany apples

Bosc pears

 kale

daikon radish

turnips

 

This is the list for both the personal and the half shares.

Nittanys are a great apple - right from Pennsylvania!  The daikon radishes are huge and delicious roasted. 

 

The half shares and the personal shares will be getting the same things this week - just different amounts.

have a great week!  Most of the summer vegetables are gone now!  So we are enjoying trying new recipes for winter squash, radishes and turnips with potatoes and sweet potatoes.  Try some new ideas.  With the internet new ideas are at your fingertip!
