s t r a w b e r r i e s --
freshly picked, local, plump, juicy, sweet, and scrumptious!

"LIKE" us on Facebook (if you haven't already)!  We will select a random follower tomorrow afternoon to receive a quart of strawberries and a pound of rhubarb.  The winner can bake a pie or crisp on Sunday!  

Look at this gorgeous setting of shortcakes made by friend of the farm Katrina using Bisson cream and strawberries, both from Wealden!
How about treating Dad to Eggs Benedict and a bloody mary on Sunday?!  As always, we have fresh eggs and, new this week, Waldo Stone Farm's "Bloody Oyster Cocktail".  We will also be carrying their pepper relish, pepper sauces and more.   Read about them at 

We still have a beautiful selection of seedlings, annuals, and perennials for your own gardens.
Some recipes stay in your recipe box forever...
