***Gathered Produce and U-pick- Spring Season Crops
(updated 10/1/23- (Check Before Heading Out To Know What Is Available, Crop Status Changes Through Season)
Gathered Produce and U-pick :
Our produce is from our fields! This means everything was grown using Organic Methods. We have been growing in all our fields this way for over 9 years now! We are proud to be able to bring you this level of quality year after year. Thank you for helping support local farms!
Currently Gathering From Our Fields (last updated 10/01/23)– no gathered during Fall (U-pick and Gathered Produce availability can vary from one day to next depending on how much gets picked or purchased the day before)
Currently U-picking (last updated 10/01/23)- Squash, Zucchini and Zinnias .(U-pick and Gathered Produce availability can vary from one day to next depending on how much gets picked or purchased the day before)
Why choose U-pick…This insures you the freshest produce and quality you choose straight off the plant. It also allows for a wonderful family experience.
We also gather produce. We understand we have some customers that can’t make it out in our fields for picking. For this reason, we can sometimes offer the ability to order pre-gathered produce for pick up. We also stock a limited amount of pre-gathered produce at the start of each Saturday and Sunday for sale in our stand during our harvest season.
We have currently met all of our requirements for organic certification and have made a personal choice to hold out on filing for our certification. We feel this will give us the ability to bring you organic produce at a lower cost and these days we can all appreciate the savings.
Our Fresh Zucchini You don’t want to miss the flavor of our zucchini. Available in small to large sizes. Making your cooking possibilities endless. We even have Round Zucchini (I recommend it stuffed with tomatoes, ground chicken, topped with cheese and baked at 350 degrees. Garnish with fresh basil! )
Ruby Chard- (not offering Spring 2023) This is a Spring crop. A crinkly leafy vegetable, which is a member of the beet family, that has a bright red stalk with green leaves that have red veins running through them. Chard grows in clumps but is sold in loose leaf bunches. It can be eaten raw or the green leaves can be prepared in same manner as spinach, and the stalks can be prepared like asparagus. Swiss chard is high in vitamins A, K and C.

Blackberry u-pick usually runs Mid May-June here in Florida.
