Peaches at Kuhn Orchards

Hello Loyal Farmers Market Customer,

We are now at the peak of our season as our peaches are large, red-cheeked, juicy, and wonderful, and our apples are starting to come in steadily.  And this weekend, we will be rolling out the red carpet for the first of our HONEYCRISP!!  If you are new to our market, we have a large array of apple varieties (almost 30 varieties!) from now through the fall, and Honeycrisp is one of our most sought after apples.  So, we’re pretty excited that we have begun picking them!!

We have also started picking our seedless grapes and Concord-type grapes.  They have a wonderful nostalgic flavor that will make you wonder what you’ve been missing while eating grapes from the grocery store.  They are amazing….come to market early and give them a try….they’re sure to go fast!!

School is just around the corner, and that means it’s back to packing lunches!  Give the kids something different on their first day of school.  We have an array of jams and jellies that will definitely make that good ol’ PB&J sandwich something special.  Try our Sweet Cherry, Red Plum, Strawberry Plum, and Peach Jams.  Or, if you want to stick to the classics, we also have Strawberry and Apricot Jam, and a number of others as well!

The farm is absolutely beautiful this time of year, and we wanted to share some pictures, particularly of our flower gardens.  We have tons of flowers that Mary Margaret arranges into bouquets each week and they are all one-of-a-kind and beautiful!
