Hello Loyal Farmers Market Customer,Just a reminder, the opening of the 2011 Farmer’s Market season is fast approaching! We can’t wait to see all of our wonderful customers again this spring. Look out for our new items – such as storage onions and dried apples. And if you’re in the area, check out our newest market on Friday evenings in the Petworth area of DC!

Spring has been slow in coming, with the peach trees just now starting to bloom. Earlier this week we harvested our first asparagus of the season. After pining away all winter long for something fresh and seasonal, those tender spears sure taste delicious. (You’re not the only ones awaiting the arrival of asparagus each year!)

Our efforts to transition the operation from the 4th generation of the Kuhn family (Dave and Mary Margaret) to the 5th generation (Sidney) continue to move ahead. We look forward to bringing the freshest fruits and veggies to the Northern VA/DC area for many years!

May at the Market
For the first weeks of market, the following will be available:

  • Apple Cider – Our cider is pressed at a local mill (Kime’s) from a mixture of our own apples! There are no preservatives or sweeteners added, just pure apple juice.
  • Asparagus – We sell our homegrown asparagus in bunches of tender “tips”!
  • Rhubarb
  • Fuji, Pink Lady, Goldrush and York Apples – from Storage.
  • Sunchokes (Jerusalem Artichokes) – Try some of these overwintered tubers that we dug in mid-March before spring officially arrived. Sunchokes are crunchy and have a mild, nut-like taste that works well sliced raw into salads, sautéed in a little butter, roasted, or in cream of sunchoke sou.!
  • Canned Peaches – Our own Summer Breeze peaches canned in light syrup.
  • Jams & Jellies – Processed by a family friend from our own frozen fruit.
  • Dried Apples – New this year!
  • Copra Onions – Our first year to grow these and keep them over the winter and they are the best storage onions around. Very limited supply!
  • Shallots – Red and yellow varieties from winter storage.
