Fall Farmstand Updates

Posted 10/9/2017 10:23am by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Happy fall, all! 

The farmstand has fully embraced the season at this point. From the roadside, before you even pull in, you'll see the sea of orange - PUMPKINS galore! All of them grown right here at White Barn Farm. Time to stop by and grab the pumpkins for your front step and even some of those delicious sugar pumpkins to roast and turn into pumpkin bread or pie or even a pumpkin curry or pumpkin soup! 

We've got lots of news about our hours, farmstand offerings, recipes, and more, so make sure to keep reading. 

Survey Time

We are planning a few new things at the farm this fall and winter and we'd love your input on them. Please take a few minutes (really, we promise that's all it will take) to fill out this quick survey. Your input will help us make these really really cool things happen! 

Fall and Winter Farmstand Hours

We have just 3 more weeks of our outdoor farmstand this year! Then we move across the street to the barn.

We will then reopen on Friday, November 3rd from 10 - 6 p.m. for our late fall farmstand hours in the barn.

A Few Things You'll See at the Farmstand...
 
The fall harvest has been coming in strong. We are stocked with an amazing amount of fall vegetables.
  • There is every type of squash you can imagine (acorn, delicata, pumpkin, blue hubbard...) - perfect for roasting with some potatoes (sweet and new), carrots, fennel, and maybe adding sausage to make it a one pan dish! 
  • We've got herbs galore! Thyme, cilantro, parsley, rosemary.... Grab some to use now or grab some and preserve them for use all winter long. 
  • Apples are at the stand, we got these locally from Fairmount Fruit Farm in Franklin, MA. 
  • Salad fixings - lettuce, baby kale, carrots, sweet peppers, mustard mix
  • Braising greens - kale, mustard greens, swiss chard
  • Watermelon (WHAT?!), tomatoes and peppers! - we know, we know - it's fall. Yep, but just enjoy this delicious locally grown fruit while it lasts. ;) 

For a list of all of our other farmstand offerings, take a look here. There's cheese, bread, eggs, honey, syrup, and so much more!
