OKAY, FARM FANS, you deserve a holiday break. So, we’re knocking off our typical newsletter nonsense—and knocking off some prices! Here’s a pile of sales, deals, discounts, pitches, and bargains. And a SAVE-THE-DATE for next weekend, Saturday, September, 12!
Pick Bartlett pears for only 75¢ a pound! That’s 50% off! Pick now, not later! Pear season will be frizzling out soon.
Come pick the last wave of peaches. Peach season will go poof soon, too! A few days ago, we made a Facebook post about peaches and over 8,000 people saw it! Gonna be a race to pick the peaches. Follow us on Facebook to get those breaking midweek alerts that can’t wait til Friday.
If you get beat to the peach punch, we have a sale on pre-picked pecks: $18/peck, or $16/peck when you buy 2, or $15/peck when you buy 3. Cobbler time! Canners, come forth!
Absurd sale on stunning lilies! Only $2/stem and they MUST GO THIS WEEKEND. We have to make room in the cooler for apple season. Please rescue these beauties!
Your apple duty this week: Pick the Ginger Gold trees clean. That is your prime directive as local fruit lovers.
Pick Italian eggplant for only 75¢ per pound! That’s 50% off! (Italian only; not dwarf.) Parm it up, people!
There are lots of Beefsteak and Roma tomatoes to pick fresh off the vine. If you want cherries or heirlooms, ask Allie at the stand. (She has a secret field. Password: toMMMato.)
Fresh apple cider and donuts! You can’t make the latter without the former. Donuts will be served 11 AM – 4 PM on Saturday and Sunday. Cider is always available. Always fresh, never frozen… but it freezes great at home.
SAVE THE DATE: Next Saturday, September 12, please come pick McIntosh apples. The farm will donate 50% of the proceeds to benefit local animal shelters. All you have to do is pick Macs at the regular price (or get discounts when you pick volume). We’ll do the rest in collaboration with the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine. You will be helping local farms, local animals, and your own local snack habit. Bring friends and go “Picking for Puppies” (and Cats and Wabbits and Boids and whatnot.) Hope to see you at the ‘Creek.
