Bulk Canning Tomatoes and Basil!

Posted 9/4/2012 8:27am by Michael Scheidel.

Hey folks.

Every year we offer bulk vegetables for canning/freezing and September is the perfect time to catch summer vegetables before they're gone! 

Paste Tomatoes

We are currently picking our Amish Paste Heirloom Tomatoes for bulk sale.  The price is $2/lb. ($1.50/lb. for current CSA members).  These are excellent for any canning, including salsas, sauces, stewed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, and tomato soup.  We currently have several cases ready to go.  A case is 25 lbs. which would produce about 8-10 quarts of sauce or tomatoes.  


Our second to last planting of basil is ready for harvest and it is looking beautiful!  Basil can be dried or processed and frozen for winter pesto!  We had excellent results last year when we simmered basil in olive oil and separated and froze the oil.  In mid winter we were cooking with basil infused olive oil!!!  We sell our herbs for $16/lb. but for bulk sales we are selling basil for $12/lb. ($10/lb for current CSA members).  This is pre-order as well.    

We also have peppers, onions, garlic, cilantro, and other herbs for sale at our farm on Tuesdays 4-7, at the Pottsville Farmer's Market on Saturdays from 8-12 and at the Plaza Grower's Market in Allentown on Wednesdays from 11:30-1:30. 

Please e-mail us your orders and we'll make arrangements about pick up.  Thank you and happy preserving!
