A pic of the share - week 6

Week 9 of the Noggins CSA

This weeks share will consist of:

1 qt Quinte Apples
1 qt Shiro Plums
1 qt Early Golden Plums
1 3L Peaches
1 pint sweet Cherries
1 bunch rhubarb

The Shiro plums may need to sit out on the counter to soften up a bit. The peaches are coming on heavy now. If you would like to order extras for canning here is a list of what is available now. You can email me to place an order if you like.

3L Basket of peaches - 5.50, 1/4 bu Peaches - $12.00, 1/4 bu plums $10.00

Around the farm everyone is harvesting plums and peaches. We are also working to get all of the apples thinned. We do this so that the apples that remain on the trees will be a good size.

Our corn maze and agritourism area is open for the season. You may wish to check it out on the webpage.

On Sunday, the 15th of August we are hosting the Incredible Picnic. Come on out with your family for a great time!!!
