Farmer John and Kathy said oftentimes people assume that November is a slow month on the farm, but it’s anything but slow. The farm stand remains open seven days a week from 9:00am until 5:00pm, with delicious fresh eggs from the farm, honey from Kathy’s bees, candles and fresh pressed cider.
The temperature is supposed to drop later this week, so why not stop and pick up some chestnuts to roast in the fireplace over the weekend.
There tons of vegetables including winter squash, brussels sprouts, spinach and broccoli, all grown on King Street.
There’s also a variety of fruit, including types of apples you may never even have heard of. We sampled the “Pink Lady” variety, which was crispy and sweet.
Linda’s fudge will be a fixture on the counter throughout the holidays, along with mini loaves of pumpkin and banana bread, caramel apples, brownies and pies in varieties including: apple, blueberry, cherry, coconut custard, pumpkin, pecan and pineapple!
Right around Thanksgiving the John and Kathy will have all sorts of holiday plants including poinsettias, cyclamen, Christmas cactus, flowering amaryllis bulbs and paper whites.
AND… around Thanksgiving there will be handmade fresh wreathes in assorted sizes, plus fresh cut trees from the Augustins’ family tree farm in Marlboro, NY. John explained that he orders 50 to 100 at a time and they are fresh cut and delivered to Greenwich right away.
Augustine’s Farm is OPEN 7 days a week from 9:00am til 5:00pm until December 21, 2014. (203) 532-9611.
