Produce for October 14, 2017

by Oct 11, 20172017 Produce Update

Thanks to those who braved the cold winds last Saturday to come out and buy vegetables! As we still have lots of tomatoes, leeks, kale, apples, parsley, etc for sale, we’ll be open for one last Saturday – on Saturday, October 14, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. If the weather is cold we will again move inside the Old Barn (across from our garden).

NEW – Elderberry Jelly made from our elderberries by Mojo Jojo Pickles. The jelly has a little kick of habanero pepper added, 125 ml, $6.

Note: for those who have purchased the Elderberry Elixir – the best before date should read Sept 2018 instead of Sept 2017.
