We’re sad to say that it is the final Saturday market of the season on October 25th.  Thank you to everyone who stopped to see us.  Be sure to mark the dates of December 5 and 6 for the Christmas Market.

We’ll be open our usual hours until Sunday December 7th, our final day of 2014.

We have lots of pumpkins, cider, apples and squash in the store.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Such a beautiful day for it.   We’ve already enjoyed one turkey dinner and are looking forward to another tonight.  Enjoy your day!

We’re open until four this afternoon with lots of apples, squash, gourds and mini pumpkins.

We’ve got the pumpkin house open today with lots more pumpkins still in the garden.  We plan to bring more in from the garden and we’ll put them out as we wash them.

What a year!  We’ve got hail coming down right now for the third time this year!  Most of our apples have been picked and hopefully it won’t damage the pumpkins still in the field.

We’ve got lots of pumpkins. squash and gourds already harvested!  The pumpkins are in the greenhouse and they seem to be pretty well sized.

This weekend we’ll add Snow and Ambrosia apples along with the other varieties we’ve had in the store recently.

This weekend we’re open Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 to 5:00 and we are open special hours this holiday Monday:  9:30 am to 4:00 pm.  Randy and Pat will be at the Carp Farmers’ Market Saturday morning.   Hope to see you soon.

Apples & Squash for the week before Thanksgiving

Tolman Sweet, Empire, Spartan, Golden Russet are just a few of the sweeter apples we’ll have in store this weekend. A new tart red apple called Gloster will be out along with Lobo, Cortland and more.  This year we have some Wolf River if you want to make apple sauce or baked apples.

We have the first of our pumpkins out on the porch along with lots more squash.

If you are out this way to our store or for the Carp Farmer’s Market The West Carleton Arts Society is having a show at the Carp fairgrounds of originals by local artists.
