Market open.......


Hi Friends,

It is an exhausting time of year for us as we clean up most of our summer crops and replant for fall. Lots of new things are started and in the ground to carry our harvests in to early winter.

Our late planted green beans are on our list this week and we also have a new item. I planted a small amount of the petite Caribou Russet potato variety this year to see if we can grow a russet type without scab. It worked! If you try these I would appreciate your feedback to see if I should grow more next year. These are like new potatoes, with delicate skins and the short season didn’t allow them to size well, but they taste great!

Happy (and healthy) eating,
Bob & Lynnita

Ordering open


Hi neighbors,

Wishing all of you a happy Labor Day weekend. We have a special deal for you this week; Dutch Cut Montauk Sweet Corn. All the wet weather last week pushed all of our corn crop to ripen at once and we are offering you a special deal so we can move it quickly. We will Dutch Cut the ears (see the photo on the ordering page) to reduce storage space and to pre-prep them for freezing should you choose to do so. We are offering this corn in 10 lb. bags (equivalent to about a dozen full ears) for $4 per bag. A great deal for you and a good opportunity for you to put some in the freezer for a nice late-winter meal.

Lynnita will be baking this week, so we have bread and muffins for you, too.

Blessings,
Bob And Lynnita

Market Open for Ordering


Hi Friends,

Opening early again today so we can get to the field and dig the rest of our potatoes before the rains soak us this week. We have some beautiful sweet corn on the menu this week and a few large, lovely cantaloupes.

Looks like we might experience some high water for Wednesday, but we will be here and if you can’t make it safely we will hold your order until you can. You may pick up at will on Thursday or Friday. Stay safe this week.

Blessings,
Bob & Lynnita

Good Morning


Hi Friends,

I am getting out a little early this morning to begin transplanting some of our fall fare for you: Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts and Kale. Fall lettuce is also germinating and we have a lot of work ahead of us harvesting off the summer crops and preparing for the season ahead. Next week we will have a large amount of sweet corn for you.

In addition to what is listed today, we will have a nice assortment of heirloom tomatoes; Yellow Jubilee, Brandywine, Cherokee Purple and Rutgers on the table this week. We also have a few bushels of Roma Canning tomatoes at $40 a bushel, so if you are fortunate enough to have canning lids, this is the time to get some. Leave a message in the “Notes” section of your order if you want me to hold some for you.

Have a Blessed Week,
Bob & Lynnita

Market open


Hi Friends,

Opening a little early today so we can leave in a short while for a play date that we truly need. Also hoping for some rain this week. I subsoiled an area for our fall cabbage down to 24" and even at that depth the soil was bone dry. We are thankful for a good well and drip irrigation to keep our crops going.

Our full slate of vendors will be here this week so be sure and stop by on Wednesday even if you don’t get an order in.

Appreciate ya’

Bob and Lynnita

The Market is Open


Howdy Folks,

The market is now open for ordering this week. It is “Abundance” time of year so you will notice that some of our prices are lower. We are not offering any baked goods this week because Lynnita is slaving in the canning kitchen with bushels and bushels and bushels of tomatoes for soup, salsa, spaghetti sauce and ketchup. If you are interested in getting some chemical-free Roma/Cipolla/Rutgers tomatoes for canning in bushel quantities, you can call 304-655-7389 or email me at bgregory@bereagardens.org for details.

We will have a few more of our “Little, Ugly But Tasty Melons” on the table this week, first come, first served so you can see what you are getting.

Hope to see you this Wednesday.

Market open for orders


Hi Friends,

This week’s market is now open for orders. We are a bit early today so I can get some field work done.

Along with what is listed here we will again have additional tomatoes, sweet peppers, cucumbers and perhaps more sweet corn on the table this week. Our “Little, Ugly Melons” will be available too. McColley Gardens, Bop & Nana’s Bakery, Kenny Point, Circle S Farms and Carol Houchin (with local honey) will all be joining us this week. Come see us for the best food options in the region.

Blessings,
Bob & Lynnita

Market is Open!


Hi Friends,

Market ordering is enabled for Wednesday’s pick up. Again, we will have tomatoes on the table this week. Our early Red Mountains have proven to be early, but we are still waiting for our fabulous heirlooms to ripen. Melody will be back this week with Bop & Nana’s baked items, Tom McColley will be here with potatoes, Kenny Point always has something delicious and interesting and Circle S Farms will be here with their array of products, too. Hope to see you!

Market Open


Howdy,

The market is open for ordering for this week’s Wednesday pick ups. We will again have Red Mountain Tomatoes on the table this week. I don’t list these for ordering so that you can pick size, ripeness, etc. when you are here. We should have about 20 pounds on the table and if you would like us to hold some back for you leave a comment for us on your order and let us know about how much you want. The price is $2.75/lb.

Blessings,
Bob & Lynnita

Market Open For Orders


Hi All,

We are now open for orders. In addition to what is listed today, we will have a few pounds of green beans, some tomatoes, and a few eggplant on our table Wednesday. I am unsure of quantities, but give us a note in the “comments” section of your order if you want any of these items and I will try to hold some for you. No guarantees that I will have them, but I will reserve what we do have rather than selling them to the public.

Blessings to you all,
Bob & Lynnita
