We will be open Monday 10am - 6pm with a good amount of all-ready picked strawberries and beautiful leafy heads of Simpson lettuce and Spinach. Call the farm phone if you are not sure if we are open as the message will be updated. 603-868-2001 If a quick rain shower comes thru, we would open after it goes by, unless we are already open.   The Lisianthus is ready. Six different colors of plugs in biodegradable fiber paks.   We also have perennials and handmade soaps. 

The first day for PYO strawberries and Sugar Snap peas will be Tuesday.  When we are open for PYO, we almost always begin at 7am. If you can not arrive until sometime later in the morning, please call first as we expect the demand to exceed the supply and we close down the beds when the ripe berries have been picked. Several area farms have taken a break from growing strawberries and new farms are not springing up.:(

Soon we will open for Pick Your Own strawberries.  The first day for PYO will most likely be Monday or Tuesday, however we will not be sure until Sunday late afternoon.   We are always trying to read mother nature and the berrie's reaction to the weather conditions and find it is hard to do. We need enough berries to ripen all at the same time to support a crowd.  Call the farm phone anytime, 603-868-2001 for updates.

We have a smaller bed for us to pick in for the farmstand and that type is Cabot. They are a  large berry with a great sweet flavor. However not enough are ripe quite yet to supply the farmstand so we are picking the Wendy and Early glow for the stand so far. 

We have also planted day neutral berries this year. A newer type of growing system. The day neutral berries should be ready later in the summer, perhaps late July, August and Sept.  This is experimental for use, please understand this, so we don't know how it will turn out. We hope they will supply us with enough for the farmstand only. We don't expect to have PYO on these day neutral varieties.

The berries look great and we have many varieties. Earlyglow and Wendy are the first berries ripening in the PYO bed. Jewel will be ready in 10 days or so.

Warren Farm Strawberry Season Newsletter 

The strawberries are back!  After having virtually no strawberries for picking the last two years, we replanted and expect to begin picking soon.  The “pick your own” season will begin when the berries become plentiful enough to sustain a small crowd. The strawberry season typically lasts from about June 10th to July 4th.  Check the website at warrenfarmnh.com  or call the farm phone at 603-868-2001 for updates and picking tips.

 

This spring we have been open several days per week with fresh lettuce and asparagus.  The asparagus is finished for the season and now we have field grown Swiss Chard and green Simpson lettuce.

The list of produce we are growing that will be available at the farm stand includes:  broccoli, kale, cucumbers, various lettuces, peppers, summer squash, zucchini, many varieties of tomatoes including heirloom types,  sweet corn, winter squash, delicata squash, cantaloupe, tomatillas, carving pumpkins, pie pumpkins and gourds, (See below for the list of pick your own vegetables etc).

 

This wonderful May weather, although a bit dry, has been a joy to most farmers and conducive to healthy and vigorous plant growth.  With that said, the raspberries look great. They will be ready for picking early July and continue until early August. 

 Other pick your own crops include: (approx dates )

Sugar snap peas in June and July

Green and Yellow Beans  in July, August and early Sept.

Tomatoes in August thru Oct (depending on the weather)

Various herbs in July thru Sept.

Flowers in July thru Sept.

Fall raspberries (in late August thru Sept, limited supply)

 

Randy’s “pick your own” tomato patch has been a great hit with our customers.  He will have approx 1000 tomato plants in the patch consisting of 15 varieties, including heirlooms.

 

The specialty cut flower Lisianthus 6 and 4paks will be available mid June.  We also tore up the overgrown and unused “cut you own” flower bed and are replanting it with new flowers and herbs for your cutting enjoyment.

 

Perennials for sale are in biodegradable fiber, gallon size pots and include Achillea, Buddleia, Campanula, Digitalis, Hibiscus, Scabiosa, Veronica and others.  See the website for a complete list.

 

We continue to offer our handmade cold process soaps as well as kosher glycerin soaps and bath salts.  New soaps this spring: 1. rebatched Farmers’ soap, 2. Castile soap made from 100% olive oil.

 

We are joining the Barrington Farmers Market as another avenue to sell our berries and produce. It is held in the parking lot across from Calef’s Country Store every Saturday morning from 9am – 1pm June 21st thru October.

Saturday we will offer fresh cut lettuce and Swiss Chard from our fields along with potted heirloom tomato plants, perennial and annual flowers, and handmade herbal soaps. We also have a small assortment of potted firs and blue spruce trees. Hours are 10am - 6pm.

The asparagus is finished for this year. We put in a new bed last year and could only harvest from it for a short time. Next year we expect to double our production.

The strawberries are looking great. The Early Glow , Wendy have plenty of large berries. Next we watch for them to turn red. The predicted hot weather for the next several days should get them changing.  Two later berries, Jewel and Allstar, are in full bloom right now and will be ready later in June.  We will begin picking berries for the stand only, as soon as enough ripen.  We are monitoring the fields constantly and possibly could have some berries for sale at the stand by Sunday or Monday.  We really don't know quite yet.  We will send out an email to everyone  on our email list as soon as we have an approximate date.   Several days later we expect to have enough berries to begin the "pick your own" season.   Call the farm phone anytime for updates as well. 868-2001

The asparagus is finished for this year. We put in a new bed last year and could only harvest from it for a short time. Next year we expect to double our production.

The strawberries are looking great. The Early Glow  and Cabot have been setting berries, the Jewel are loaded with flowers at this point, as they mature after the Early Glow variety. We have other varieties as well.  We will begin picking berries for the stand only, in a few days. We are monitoring the fields constantly, and don't know if this cooler weather will slow growth and ripening down. We could have some berries for sale at the stand by Sat or Sunday. We really don't know quite yet.  We will send out an email to everyone  on our email list as soon as we know.   Several days later we expect to have enough berries to begin the "pick your own" season.  Call the farm phone anytime for updates as well. 868-2001
