Farmstand Product List August 22-28, 2012

Two weeks ago I said we were in the thick of the summer now here I am feeling like we’re quickly heading into fall! This week will bring the last of our PEACHES from Three Springs but we will be getting in plenty of apples in their place. So if you want to preserve those peaches, now is the time! From Beechwood Orchards we will have everyone’s favorite the HONEYCRISP, as well as RAMBO, GINGERGOLD and MCINTOSH, and PRUNE PLUMS. FIGS are in full swing with big beautiful wild Purple Figs from David Siller and pristine super sweet figs from Giovanni! As a special treat, we have cultivated PAW PAWS from Green Meadow and a super sweet and creamy MAGNESS PEAR as well as some equally sweet APHRODITE and HONEYDEW MELONS. The coming fall is most evident in our produce selection with the return of GREENS and LETTUCES—both coming from Landisdale this week. Green Meadows will be providing us with some SAN MARZANO PLUM TOMATOES, LACINATO KALE, and LIMA BEANS. And we have all your possible PEPPER needs covered: beautiful fryers and hot cherry peppers from Blooming Glen, not to mention purple, orange, red, green, yellow bell peppers! We will have a small supply of SHISHITO PEPPERS from Blue Moon, POBLANO PEPPERS from Terhune Orchards and the hottest of hots, the GHOST PEPPER from Oak Grove Farm.

And did I mention we have 2 WHOLE LAMBS coming in this week? Start getting your grills ready! We might—I can’t promise anything yet—also have a few RABBITS coming in from Brooke Lee. I enjoyed a delicious one last week, so feel free to inquire! In the “whey” of cheese, we have the OLD MAN HIGHLANDER and LEVON from Calkins Creamery as well as a delicate bloomy rind from Cherry Grove named LAYLA!
