The long awaited opening of Augustine’s Farm is finally here. Farmer John said the cold, rainy spring put the farm behind schedule.
Though the rain was great for alleviating the drought, it was not so ideal for starting crops.
But the wait is over. On Saturday, July 1, Farmer John and Kathy will open the farm stand from 9-5.
“Opening day will have corn from the South,” Kathy said in an email on Tuesday. “We’re picking wonderful lettuces and beets, carrots, scallions, broccoli and will have nearby strawberries.”
As the season progresses Augustine’s will sell their own. “In around two weeks the corn should be our own,” she said, adding that squashes, cucumbers and beans will start soon.
As always, Augustine’s Farm will sell fresh eggs from their own hens and honey from their own hives.
There will also be baked goods and local fruit will start in two weeks. Sunflowers and field flowers will start the middle of July.
“Eating healthy is important and we want you to enjoy what we grow,” Kathy said.
Augustine’s Farm is located at 1332 King Street in Greenwich Augustine’s Farm on Facebook.
