Currently viewing the tag: "Pick Your Own in Central Virginia"

After the catastrophic storms hit our area and the subsequent mournful loss of everything in our refrigerators, it is with renewed ambition that we fill our freezers and refrigerators with the seasonal and lovingly grown. It is my upmost pleasure to bring updated reminders about what is currently in season  and at the best prices in beautiful Central Virginia. It is with the hope that we are delving into fresh seasonal cooking, not just for health benefits, but for the glorious and nectarous taste that can only come from “just from the farm” freshness.

While apples are just becoming available in some areas, this season belongs to the blackberry, plum and peaches!
