Wood-Fired Pizza Night and the Return of Cucumber Season

May 3rd, 2023

If you’ve been on one of our farm tours or attended Chef Fest last year, you probably noticed our wood-fired pizza oven. We’re excited to announce that we’ll be putting it to use during our Wood-Fired Pizza Night on Friday, May 19th from 6-8pm! Held right here on the farm, this delicious event is perfect for the whole family. We’ll be serving up pizzas buffet style for both veggie lovers and meat-eaters alike featuring toppings grown on the farm. There will also be live music, lawn games, and activities for the kids to enjoy. This is a ticketed event that is open to the public. Head here to learn more and secure your spot!

Cucumbers are officially back in season! We’re harvesting three different varieties for you, each with a specific purpose. Excelsior (pictured below on the far left), is a small pickling cucumber with bumpy skin. Its smaller stature and lower water content make it perfect for pickling! Minime (pictured in the middle) is miniature in size with smooth skin and juicy flesh. These are ideal for snacking on raw, especially when paired with your favorite dip. Ashley (pictured on the far right) is a standard slicing cucumber that is sweet, juicy, and has a crisp texture. It is great for cutting up and adding to sandwiches and salads. You can find all of these cucumber varieties at the Farm Stand on Saturday or you can add them to your Veggie Share.

The first round of summer crops we planted are thriving. We typically focus on getting summer varietals with a longer maturity window in the ground first in order to allow them enough time to develop their root system while the weather is still favorable. Crops like long beans (pictured here), eggplant, okra, winter squash, watermelons, and muskmelons take at least two months and longer to produce their first harvest. We expect to see the first of these ready as our spring crops begin to wind down in June!
