Martin's Farmstand:  Things to come

In the coming weeks more produce will begin to be available. We have had some questions at the stand as to the availability of certain produce and would like to take a moment to address those questions. First and foremost strawberries are on everyone’s minds. The berries in the fields are on track for picking around mid june. Greens such as lettuce, spinach and kale are becoming more abundant. We are picking greenhouse tomatoes and cucumbers now (Expect intermittent supply in the stand). Asparagus will continue to be harvested for the next couple of weeks.
As we come into summer, more produce will become available and we will do our best to provide updates as everything becomes available. The farm is in full swing and we look forward to the growing year.

Miami County Locally Grown:  NEW Strawberry Delights from Farmhouse!

Strawberry season is almost upon us!!

And Carmen at The Farmhouse Bakery is gearing up -

She’s just added Strawberry Crumble Bread, Strawberry Pop Tarts, and Shortcakes to her Market offerings!!

And a special Thanks to Carmen for all the delicious samples she brought to the last Market pickup – only problem? She ran out of extras for sale a lot faster than samples (and once you’ve had a sample, you’re definitely looking to buy one, even if it doesn’t make it home!!)
