Autumnal Harvest

Better apples.
It's Autumn in the North Country! Colors are bolder, fruit and veggies are coming out our ears, and all the tourists have left the lakes, streams, and rivers empty for the locals' enjoyment. Look at all this beauty:

Better Farm's gardens are virtually overrun with more zucchini, cucumber, string bean, pumpkin, lettuce, kale, artichoke, onion, you-name-it than we can shake the proverbial stick at. Kristen and I picked 50-plus-pounds of veggies in about 20 minutes the other day:

String beans, zukes, tomatoes, leeks, broccoli, tomatoes, Swiss chard, and kale.
We've kept the farm stand open later than ever, and we're taken custom orders and even doing low-scale CSAs with those living locally who would like a weekly share of fresh produce. And I've been juicing like a mad woman! Here's one of the smoothies I made the other day:
Smoothie made from apples, raspberries, Swiss chard, kale, wheat grass, peaches, and cantaloupe.
No need to start buying produce from the grocery store just yet! Swing on over or give us a call at (315) 482-2536 to place an order or pick your own.
