What's Growing On at Easy Pickin's Orchard?

*UPDATE* 5/6/20:  Spring is here !  What's "growing on" ??   

We spend the springtime seeding, plowing & planting the first veggies in our greenhouses & fields, and we finish prepping the orchard & berry patches.  We have the first of our springtime veggies for sale NOW:  shop online & pick-up at the farm, or come see us starting May 9 at Ellington Farmers' Market. 

This year, in the time of COVID-19, we're working to make sure you can still enjoy our fresh produce safely all season long.  Pick-Your-Own, on-farm stand & the farmers' markets we go to, and our CSA:  we'll keep doing it all.  Stay tuned for details, & remember how much we appreciate your support !
