We also started a small amount of wine grapes and added a few eating grapes, and will expand on what succeeds. We are also dipping into hydroponic like grow operations using organic methods for our lettuce, basil, peppers, cucumbers and strawberries.
In 2013 we expanded the meat operation to include pork, beef, turkey and chicken. We currently offer beef by the side with each round of beef beginning in June and pork is offered by the side or 1/4 share throughout the year. Chicken is available from the Spring until November with turkey available in the summer in 10-12 pound sizes and holiday size (20-30 lbs) in October and November.
We work in cooperation with several local farms to round out our produce and fruit selection. Please see our shopping list for everything that is available.
