After more that 40 years of crawling down the rows on my hands and knees, I have decided to scale down my operation. We now offer Figs and Fig trees here at the farm and to area restaurants and bakeries. Potted Fig trees are available from Memorial Weekend through the summer and fall. Fresh, tree ripened Figs start the end of August and go into November. Best to call or text @ 413-834-0143 to check availability. We hope to get back into seed Garlic in the next year or two. Check back in the fall to see if we have any available. No chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Ever.

Peach update

There are no peaches for harvest in Massachusetts this year — an unfortunate casualty of increasingly variable weather fueled by climate change. We are keeping the guide updated with information about other fruit that is available, along with farms that are sourcing peaches from other parts of the region.
