NOTES FROM THE FARM

Each week, owner of Stone Hollow Farmstead, Deborah Stone will offer a behind-the-scenes look at life on the farm, in hopes of sharing the entire journey of our farm to your table.

With it being the first week of fall, we are so excited to be able to provide both the tail end of our summer crops, as well as the beginning of a few winter crops. Until the first frost, we will continue harvesting the remainder of our summer crops. 

This week, we have a mixture of summer apples and tomatoes, mixed in with greens and cushaw squash, a delicious winter squash! Our Farm Dinner, coming up on October 23rd, will truly demonstrate this unique transition, as we will be serving foods harvested during both summer and fall.
