New farmstand hours: Open 9-6 Wed thru Fri and 9-4 Sat and Sunday. We are now closed Monday and Tuesday. Call the farm phone with any questions at 603-868-2001

Canning or sauce tomatoes are plentiful. We have our new tomato patch open for green tomato picking also. Between both patches there are lots of variety and many tomatoes for picking. The tomatillas or salsa tomatoes are not ready yet. We covered both tomato patches up during the cold snap the other night and they were undamaged.

Peaches are done for the season. At the farm stand we have already picked strawberries, tomatoes, kale, swiss chard, Delicata winter squash, summer squash, zucchini and cukes. The zucchini and cukes have slowed down and often we run out later in the day.

We have 4" pots of zinnias, calendula and gomphrena for sale. They provide a vibrant splash of color as summer ends and fall begins. They are great for cutting and will produce more stems the more you cut them, especially the zinnias and gomphrena. I dry all three of these flowers also.

The CYO garden is loaded with many longstemmed varieties of Zinnias. There are flowers for drying too. Come on over and cut some flowers for your home, your wedding, the work place or for a friend. I provide a clean bucket with floral life for you to place your flowers. You can bring your own bucket or vase if you desire. I will wrap your flowers for travel. I recommend bringing a container if you will travel any great distance with your flowers.

Of course we have lots of handmade herbal soaps in our soap closet too.

The PYO fall raspberries have a few pints every few days depending on demand. There is 1 row of red Polana and a scattering of Fall Gold. We do not have a lot of fall raspberries this year. Several of our better rows died out the last 2 years.

Several of the Barrington farmers that participated in the Barrington Farm Tour Day got together and began planning for a fair this fall to happen on October 4th. After several meetings the decision was made to not have the fair this year, but to begin planning it for next year.

We have already picked strawberries everyday lately. They are big and sweet and red all the way thru. Also at the farmstand we will have Peaches, many varieties of tomatoes, Pints of red and yellow cherry tomatoes, Kale, summer squash, Zucchini, Swiss chard and delicata squash. We are in between lettuce plantings ,meaning no lettuce at this time. We don't have any more sweet corn for this year. Our September corn succumbed to the 5 weeks of wet weather.

The PYO tomato patch is open and loaded with tomatoes, red or green, and priced at $1/lb. We have 850 plants combining 15 varieties and they are all ready. The roma types or paste tomatoes are loaded and this is a good time to pick quantity. We have three varieties of them this year, Viva italiana, roma and big mamma. Lots of customers make sauce using the heirloom Mortgage Lifter also, as it is so meaty, and combine it with the other varieties. We have a 2nd patch of tomatoes with 250 plants and it is just starting to ripen. It has many varieties and Tomatillas also. They will be ready very soon.

Sometime in September we have a frost, however we cover our tomatoes and continue to pick them. Last year we picked tomatoes until October 28th! We have late plantings of cukes, summer squash, zucchini, lettuce and kale also. We cover up any crops that are not frost tolerant and keep them going as long as possible.

We have a few fall raspberries for picking.  The red Polanas only have one row this year. Call for conditions as they get picked off. The yellow fall gold is not in good condition but you can find some berries. Always call for picking conditions.

 We have set our farm store hours to be Tuesday thru Friday 9am - 6pm and Saturday and Sunday 9 -4pm, closed Monday. Soon we will cut back on our hours, I'll keep you posted.

If you don't cut in the CYO garden it gets ahead of us. It is loaded with many longstemmed varieties.  Come on over and cut some flowers for your home, your wedding, the work place or for a friend. You can bring your own bucket or vase or I will wrap your flowers for travel. The herb garden is ready for you also. It has several varieties of Basil including a deep purple type, a fennel, anise hyssop, celantro, rosemary, tarragon and feverfew (which is great for headaches).
