Organic Citrus (Read for Discount!), Honor System Eggs and Cheese, CSA!

Posted 2/27/2017 6:45pm by Michael Scheidel.

Hey Good Folks!

While we have enjoyed lots of time outside on the farm, this warm weather has a lot of folks pretty jittery, especially those dependent on weather to make a living.  I heard the cherry blossoms in our nation's capital are blooming already and the fruit growers in the whole northeast are nervous about trees breaking dormancy and then getting blossoms whacked with a frost or freeze.  Last year the same thing happened and most of the region's cherry crop was lost.  Praying that doesn't happen again! 


We will be receiving our next shipment of Organic Citrus from the Thorpes on or around March 13th (we'll give exact details when we get closer to shipment date).  Ordering window is open now and will close Wednesday, March 8th at 8:00 a.m.  Ordering instructions are below! Varieties are:

*Red Grapefruits-

Certified organic, very sweet and beautiful rose colored interior; small, medium and large mixed in each case, very few seeds; cases weigh approximately 30 lbs. and include around 38-42 fruits per case; $50.00/case and $25.00 for a half case.  


*Valencia Oranges-

Deeper orange color than the Hamlins with more zing as well, excellent for peeling, slicing into wedges or juicing especially to mix with red grapefruit; some seeds; full  cases weigh about 40-45 lbs. and total between 80-100 oranges per case; full cases $55.00; half cases $30.

Pick up will be here at the farm.  Please remember that if you order, you are committing to purchasing and picking up the fruit!  This is an excellent opportunity to get fresh, organic citrus for an excellent price. 


Save $5 per case of either valencias or red grapefruit when you order two or more cases. That means if you buy two cases of valencias you pay $50/case instead of $55.  If you buy two or more cases of red grapefruit you pay $45/case instead of $50.  If you buy a case of each your total will be $95.  Consider getting a couple other families or friends to go in on a couple of cases to take advantage of the discount!  We are really looking forward to the delicious, healthy organic fruit as much as you!  All ordering is online and instructions to order are below.   

Honor System Eggs and Cheese

As a reminder, we have plenty of our organically fed free range hen eggs available for $4.50/dozen.  We also have Hilltop Meadow's Raw Cow Milk Cheese!  varieties include cheddar, swiss, garlic dill, pepper jack, and smoked cheddar.  You can stop by the farm any daylight hour Monday through Saturday (No Sundays Please) and enter the market room.  The marked refrigerator will have the eggs and cheese and a tin to make change on-your-honor. 


We have plenty of shares available for the 2017 growing season.  Visit our website for all the details (under the CSA/Ordering Tab).
