Pricing information - I am building a pricing guide to help you know what
the typical prices are for each crop.
Remember to always check with the farm's own website or Facebook
page before you go - or call or email them if they don't have a website or
Facebook page. Conditions at the farms and crops can change literally
overnight, so if you want to avoid a wasted trip out there - check with
the farm directly before you go!

What's in season in January 2021, and
other timely information:
Notes for January 2021: Crop growth is slowing down, except for
Christmas tree farms and if you live in southern California, southern Texas, Florida or
along the Gulf coast where citrus are ripe, and believe it or not, the blueberry
and strawberry season in those areas is about to begin. See your state harvest calendar
. This year, much of the country is still seeing mild weather, so lettuce, peas, broccoli, cabbage and other greens are thriving. And this is a good time to
get a canner and learn how to preserve foods for the winter,
like canning some applesauce, apple butter or
jam, which make great gifts. As do your own homemade specialty liqueurs!
How about homemade cranberry sauce or a pumpkin pie made from a
real pumpkin for the holidays? See our comprehensive list of
home canning, jam and jelly
making, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access
recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search.
A fun winter activity is to
make your own ice cream,
even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. If you have any questions or suggestions,
feel free to write me!
