What’s At The Market This Week- June 25, 2014

What did we say last week ? It ALL COMES AT ONE TIME……. And it is a true statement. Red potatoes, white potatoes, green-beans, tomatoes, peppers, squash of every variety, cucumbers, purple hull-pink eye peas and even a few blue berries !! …….Oh my as my grandson would say !

We eat good here on the farm and so do our customers. It gives us reason to keep on keeping on. So this week we will tackle 2 maybe 3 markets depending on the rain. Irrigation from the pond is great and sustainable but nothing beats rain from above.

We will be at the Stanley Co.Farmers Market in downtown  Albemarle on Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 12 noon and the Montgomery Co Farmers Market on Thursday  in downtown Troy from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m..

We hope you can make one of the markets, but if not you can always email us at- sales@whiteoakfarmnc.com and we will do our best to get it to you.

What’s At The Market This Week- June 18, 2014

When it starts it really starts……..everything coming off at the same time. The tomatoes are really doing great. Onions are ready to dig as are the red potatoes. We are already picking green-beans and the blueberries are starting but will be at least another week before we have any for market.

We have pulled all the squash & cucumbers out of the high tunnel, composted the soil and planted a late row of tomatoes. With the heat we are getting out early and knocking off mid day. Hopefully we will get some rain soon.

This week at the Montgomery Co Farmers Market we will have- Red & Green tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, beets, onions, green beans, swiss chard and red potatoes. Hope you are able to come out and support the market. If there’s ever a time that your not able to make the market or your running late just email us at sales@whiteoakfarmnc.com and we will try our best to get it to you.
