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 !
