 Welcome to Easy Pickin's Orchard !

** February 2015 **:  

Winter has started to wear out its welcome, but we think we can make it !  The antidote to cabin fever is playing outside, and then coming in to make some good, hearty, tasty meals that warm you up.  We still have good stuff in the cooler & cold cellar, and we're also growing greens in the big greenhouse.  Here's what we can provide for your winter menus, & how to get it:

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: going fast; get 'em SOON if you want to make pie or sauce.

* cabbage, carrots, potatoes, leeks, onions, shallots: plenty !

* spinach, kale & other seasonal greens: growing in our winter greenhouse; should be more abundant soon as the days get longer, but always worth asking about. 

*** SPECIAL WHILE SUPPLIES LAST ***:

6 leeks & 2 lb all-purpose potatoes for only $5.

AVAILABLE at the farmers' markets we're going to, or e-mail us if you want to pick up at the farmhouse.  SOUP !!! SUPER !!!  (or quiche or casserole or frittata or ...  )   

 

 

 

3) fall & winter farmers' markets: see our "Farmers' Markets" page; we have a few more weekends in Ellington & Coventry.  

 

Hope you're all staying warm & well this winter -- and hope you're looking forward to spring planting season ... meanwhile, WATCH THIS SPACE for delicious local eating opportunities for the rest of the winter !
