Collective sign of relief on the farm with our first rainfall of more than a quarter-inch since early June. Farmers and produce alike brightened up and stood taller after almost two inches fell on Friday. Look for fall crops to start coming in abundance soon. First of our storage onions are this week, no longer the sweet summer varieties, these are more pungent and cook down into sweet savory flavor better. Greens are also coming back with lettuce and chard coming back onto the scene.
Labor on Labor Day Potato Harvest
Our favorite Crystal Spring Farm tradition returns this year! Join us on Labor Day (September 4) to help harvest our potato crop. This is a great community event where we use our digging machine to lift the spuds and then you join us to help us gather them up! We start at 10am in the fields. Please join us!
Last Chance for fresh Organic Maine Wild Blueberries
Order organic Maine wild blueberries for this Friday! Quarts are $9 and will be delivered for Fridays pickup. Order online here. **Please note we are not able to take orders via phone or email as in years past.
Farm Raised Pork
We will star taking orders for whole and half pigs this week. If you have never had farm raised pork it is like nothing the grocery store has to offer. Raised on pasture and fed organic grain (in addition to gelato) our pork tastes great and you know where the animals came from and how they lived. Ask us for a info/sign-up sheet at pick-up or download one here.
