Everything you need for Thanksgiving (and for entertaining all your guests!)

We are harvesting veggies from the fields and anticipating preparing and eating lots of them over the next several weeks!

Our legendary Nantucket Turnips are small but sweet!

Kale is packed with fiber and anti-oxidants,
and it tastes GREAT after the frosts we've had.
Winter squashes
(read our blog to identify the different varieties)
Brussells Sprouts will be harvested this weekend.
Organic spinach, mesclun, arugula, and fresh herbs, including Bartlett's Custom Blended Poultry Mix are all grown in our Certified Organic Greenhouses.

from our own organic herbs!
Long-Island Cheese Pumpkins are the best for pies.
