Happy 4th of July!

Market News

Hope you have a great 4th of July!

Yes we are open all day tomorrow7am – 6pm. So come on out, pick some blueberries, grab a pie, grab some peaches, and say “HELLO”!
We have our own peaches and blueberries. We also have local squash, cucumbers, green beans, and corn.
Our corn will be ready any day now. Probably Friday-ish.
Blueberries

The blueberry picking at field #2 and #1 is great right now. There are lots of great blueberries  and the bushes are loaded.
Field #2 (Leager Road by the peach orchard) will be open 7am – noon tomorrow morning (Wednesday,  July 4th). Field #1 (Benton Corner Road) will be open 7am – noon Friday, July 6th. I’m not sure where we will be Saturday, you will have to check the website when we get closer.  Any other time, come to the market and you can pick here, but I recommend hitting field #1 or #2 if you can, the picking is pretty easy there.
Of course, if you don’t want to pick-your-own, just stop in and grab some. We have plenty for ya!
How are you beating the heat?


It’s pretty hot out there! I hope you all have an irrigation machine in your asparagus field to cool you down after a hard day’s work.
Did you have fun listening to Bluegrass in the Blueberry Patch?

We did!

Opening Day for Tart Cherry picking is this Thursday, June 14th

Tart Cherries

Opening day for tart cherry picking is this Thursday, June 14th. Hours for picking are regular market hours: Monday-Friday 7am-6pm, Saturday and Sunday 7am-5pm.
If you haven’t picked cherries at our farm before, I must tell you that we don’t have many cherry trees, so the season usually goes by pretty quickly.
For those who don’t want to pick their own, we will be picking those pesky cherries that are out of reach for the u-pickers to  sell in the market. But, we won’t do that until the weekend.
Blueberries

I hope to start u-pick blueberries this Saturday, June 16th. The picking hours will be 7am-noon, but I’m not exactly sure where we will be picking. Actually, I’m not positive we will be able to start Saturday.
My best guess – We will start Saturday at the Leager Road  field (Field #2). If you go to the website, and check the u-pick blueberry page, there should be updates and you will be able to see a map of the fields.
I may not send another e-newsletter before then, but you should be able to check the website or call the farm for the latest info.
We still have asparagus.

We should have asparagus at least another week – probably to the end of June.

Put your boots and raincoat on! It’s time to pick some berries!

It’s time to pick some berries!

Put your boots and raincoat on! It’s time to pick some berries!

FAQ for Saturday May 19th:

1) Are the strawberries ready? Yes.
2) Can we pick our own? Yes
3) How are the berries doing with all of this rain? Well, they are wet. But, they are plentiful right now, and I’m not sure how long the season will last.

Summary: Come on out and pick in the rain. Think of it as a strawberry adventure! There’s kettle corn and ice cream for those who are brave! We have already picked berries for the not so brave too.😉

 

There is asparagus too.

Say “Happy Mother’s Day” with fresh strawberries from Godfrey’s!

The strawberries are here!

We have started picking strawberries and we should have them here for you and Mom this weekend. Be sure to stop in and grab some!
The season is just getting started, so the heaviest picking won’t be for another week. But, we hope to have plenty in the market for everyone and the u-pick patch will be open. If you are making plans to pick many flats, you should wait until next weekend. But I’d REALLY love to see you this weekend, and the kids need some fresh air, so please drop by. We have lots of gift options for Mom and if you are cooking dinner, then you need to grab a strawberry-rhubarb pie for dessert.
Happy Mother’s Day!

So. I think you should bring Mom with you, let her pick out a hanging basket, then sit and enjoy an ice cream cone on the porch. Then take home everything you need to make her a great dinner.   You know that’s just my opinion, but some say I’m pretty smart. (Not my kids – they’ve never said that. Actually, I can’t really think of who has said that, but I’m sure there is someone. Oh yes, that’s right! My mother says it all of the time. Does she count?)
The asparagus is fabulous right now!

If you want to do some freezing or canning, this weekend is a great time. It’s plentiful, it’s beautiful, and it’s delicious right now!

Opening Monday April 23 – I hope the asparagus is ready!

Market News

It’s been a bit too cold for the asparagus to actually GROW, but those wonderful little plants have started to poke their heads out to see what’s going on. And I hope they will give up waiting for warmth, settle on a bit of sunshine, and come on out by the first of the week.
The Market Opens Monday!

The ice cream, peanut butter, kettle corn, baked goods, flowers, and other goodies are all ready to go, so please plan to come out next week and see us. It’s been a while, and I’m anxious to catch up on your winter’s news.
Asparagus
Here’s the weather forecast. I can’t actually take a picture of the asparagus, because it’s not up yet…
See where it says low of 34, 38, 39… That’s not exactly gonna bring those little spears shooting out at breakneck speed, if you know what I mean. But the bright sunshine should help.
Strawberries
I would like to show you the blossoms on the strawberries, but they are all covered up with blankets for another couple of days to protect them on these cold nights.

File footage… These little cuties are much older now.
Peaches

Here’s a few pictures of the peach trees and friends.
Molly, thanks for the photos!
Hope to see you soon,
Lisa

Peaches, tomatoes, peppers, cantaloupes, sweet corn and PEACH FEST!

Attention all peach pickers!

The peach season is moving along quickly. The last variety, which is usually ready around Labor Day is already starting to show some color and will probably be ready within the next couple of weeks. So, that means you shouldn’t wait. This weekend’s u-pick orchard hours are a little different than usual – Friday 8am – 1pm, Saturday 1pm-5pm (that’s the peach festival!), and Sunday morning 8am-1pm. Next week (Aug 11) we will go back to normal hours Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 8am-1pm. After that, we will see how the peaches are doing before we decide about picking.

By the way, the mother standing right behind this cute little boy has a birthday today. Happy birthday Esther!

Sudlersville Peach Festival

I told you about the festival in the last letter, so I won’t dwell on it this time. Just a few quick points and a precious photo. The Peach Festival is this Saturday, August 5th, 1pm-5pm.

And here’s what to expect this Saturday:

 

 

 

Sweet Corn

We are picking both white and bi-color sweet corn. If you want to put some in the freezer, you better get started! Labor Day will be here before you know it. Did I tell you that we close the market after Labor Day? Don’t wait!

Bell Peppers

We are picking some beautiful green bell peppers now. The reds should be ready soon. They make great stuffed peppers. I think they would be delicious with Langenfelder’s sausage and local sweet onions. Yum… Yum…

Cantaloupes

The cantaloupes are really starting to roll in. They are beautiful AND delicious!

Tomatoes

My crystal ball says you should plan to do your sauces, stews, and salsas in the next week or two. They are plentiful and coming in really big right now. But I know someimes you want the smaller ones for canning, and those should be ready in the next couple of weeks!

I hope to see you Saturday!
