 Welcome to Easy Pickin's Orchard !

** January 2015 **:  

Welcome to winter for real, and best wishes for a Happy New Year !  Cold weather & New Year's resolutions are 2 great reasons for cooking & eating right, and we can help you with that.  Fresh & local & delicious ... what do we have on hand these days ?  And how can you get these good fruits & veggies over the winter ?

1) sales from the farmhouse:

check the list of produce items we're offering, e-mail us at farmerb@easypickinsorchard.com to order whatever you need, & come get it !

**AVAILABLE NOW**: apples & Asian pears (1st-quality & kitchen-grade on both), cabbage, carrots, leeks, onions, shallots, regular & sweet potatoes, radishes, spinach, kale & other seasonal greens, & still some winter squash left. 

2) "off-season" CSA shares: We did special 1-week shares for Thanksgiving & the December holidays, now here's one to cheer you up in January ! 

 

Need some incentive -- like fresh, local vegetables & fruit from your farmers -- to get you cooking up some good HOT MEALS this winter ?  Here's our latest 1-week CSA share -- the "January Warm-Up Soups-to-Sweets" assortment !  Click the link HERE for all the details, and order yourself the makings of everything from stews to strudel, casseroles to crisp ...  order NOW for pick-up on Thursday 1/22 or Saturday 1/24.

 

3) fall & winter farmers' markets: see our "Farmers' Markets" page; we'll be in Suffield, Ellington, & Coventry.  

 

Thanks for a wonderful summer & fall of pick-your-own (& pick-up-at-the-farmhouse orders), CSA & farm market sales -- and WATCH THIS SPACE for more delicious local eating opportunities this fall & winter !
