Farmstand in the Barn Begins!

Posted 11/2/2018 12:50pm by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Unbelievably, we are into November so we have transported the farmstand to our indoor location, the right side of the big White Barn just across the street from our summer farmstand under the tent.

1A drivers must've seen every vehicle at WBF passing busily back and forth yesterday afternoon. Tractors with stuff for the burn pile, tractors with our farmstand tables going to the barn, the white van full of coffee, maple syrup, baskets and wooden boxes, the black truck toting a freezer, display fridge, eggs, meat, and cheese, the purple truck with all sorts of miscellaneous, a flurry of activity for sure!

Farmer Chris coordinated it all and managed to be upbeat and excited the whole time.

We hope you have all been reveling in the beauty of the last two days' sunshine and warm breezes! We got our garlic planted as the intense golden light of late fall illuminated our faces during dusk on Halloween.  We planted many baskets of garlic cloves (275 lbs!) and we pushed each clove into the cool, dark soil to take root ever so slightly before their winter nap.

We have reduced our hours for the Fall. We are now open just Friday - Sunday:

Friday 10am - 6pm
Saturday & Sunday 10am to 4pm
 
Jordan Brothers Seafood will still be at the farmstand twice a week, but it will now be Fridays & Saturdays:
Friday 2pm - 6pm and Saturday 10am - 2pm
 
Plenty of groceries still available!
  • Apples, Bosc Pears, and now Apple Cider from Fairmount Fruit Farm (the only conventional produce at the farmstand)
  • Leeks, Celery, Green Peppers, Onions, Garlic, Shallots
  • 3 Varieties of Kale, Escarole, Frisee, Sugarloaf Radicchio
  • Baby Head Lettuce
  • Bagged Greens: Pea Tendrils, Spinach, Arugula, Spicy Mix, Lettuce Mix
  • Winter Squash, Sweet Potatoes and Potatoes, Beets, Celery Root
  • Fresh-Picked Bunches of Baby Carrots and French Breakfast Radishes
  • Kohlrabi and all varieties of Cabbage

  

Be careful entering and exiting our driveway at 458 South St. Do feel free to pull into the driveway parking past the house if spots are available. If it seems crowded you can always park at the summer farmstand and cross the street, carefully!

We have a dirt driveway complete with mud puddles when it rains, so bring your rainboots if possible!

Bring your shopping bags!

Did you ever meet such demanding local farmers!! Good Grief!

We will be so thankful if you buy your groceries at our farm!

Thanks and see you soon!
