ARONIA BERRIES are gaining popularity among health-conscious people who are looking to improve their health. These berries of the Aronia melanocarpa plant are packed with nutrients and antioxidants, such as vitamin C and anthocyanins, and offer wonderful health benefits for those who want to improve their health through better nutrition. We sell frozen berries for $6 in a quart size bag (one pound) or $10 for a gallon. If you want to Pick Your Own and make it family fun event from mid August to early Sept. they are $3 a pound.
ELDERBERRIES are known as "natures medicine chest" and we offer elderberries as Pick Your Own for $6 a pound and you can have your own flu and cold fighting ingredients during the winter. They are a prized healthful berry and will be ripe around the first of Sept.

“Friends of the Farm CSA”.
1. Our “customize your box CSA” is where you tell us the main vegetables you want and how much each week. Also, you can let us know any specialty vegetables you would like us to grow. We will work hard to personalize your needs.
2. Experience the Farm activities. This creates a sense of ownership as your family experiences some “back to the dirt” activities like helping plant, weed, harvest and clean up….all at your own convenience (three times a growing season). It’s a great family bonding time as you teach your children about work and gardening while having fun together and watching the miracle of seeds grow into something beautiful. Did you know there is scientific evidence that we all need more “dirt microbes” and less antibiotics? And there is scientific evidence that garden therapy really works for all ages.
