our market in the vintage barn, we sell a wide variety of our own
pesticide-free produce grown in accordance with Northeast Organic Farming
Association practices, available in season to the public at the farm.
THE SEASON: Our season begins the Saturday after Independence Day
and ends sometime in October. (Gary makes the call based on the weather, the
traffic at the barn, and how the crops are faring in the fall weather. In
2013, October 13 was the last day.) Often the hours switch to weekend-only
before the very end of the season. Sometimes an unexpected blizzard calls an
abrupt halt to the season. So don't wait till October to visit the Garlic
Farm for the first time! Sign up for our newsletter to have advance notice of
the closing for the season.
