This is the first of a two-part series about local maple syrup—which is rare in these parts. Next month we’ll visit Winfield Farm in Tinicum Township, Bucks County.

When Jim Myers is thirsty while working during maple tapping season, he tips a glass under a tree tap and takes a sip of […]
I decided several years ago that Bucks County folks needed to know where to go to get good meat—locally. Not from a supermarket, but from some of the great butchers and farms right here. So here is a post on where you can find locally raised, locally butchered good meat. Click on […]
Every year, as I prepare to do this post, I look back at all the articles we have published. And I’m always amazed and humbled. What started as “just a blog” nine years ago has evolved into a vibrant website with over half million page views, and over one hundred thousand visitors […]
We’ve all been there; stuck without a good holiday gift for one person, and you have no idea what to get them. You know they love food, but gift cards to the same chain restaurants are lame, and mugs stuffed with pre-packed hot cocoa just looks like you took the easy way out.
Tired of those nasty frozen supermarket turkeys? Here’s a list of local farms, markets and caterers that can get a fresh turkey on your table this Thanksgiving. Many also offer sides and other full meal options updated for 2016.

This warm October weather is certainly unusual, but when you live on the East Coast, you expect Mother Nature to abide by her own rules. Remember the one year it snowed near the week of Halloween?
Despite the wonky temperatures we have experienced in 2016, the harvest season for local wineries has been great. Many vineyards […]
“There are three things that I’ve learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.”
— Linus, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
What you should discuss is how many pumpkins can fit in your trunk, because Bucks County has plenty of them (you just need to know where to look!). Right […]
The best part about living in Bucks County (or Pennsylvania in general) is seeing the season change right before your eyes. Pumpkins appear in the patches, farmers markets are still bursting with fresh produce, and you can’t drive anywhere without seeing those colorful fall trees.
Another great part about Bucks County in the fall is […]
Now that we are all embracing the fall weather, it’s time to welcome the abundance of seasonal produce. Apples are already ripe and being picked at local orchards, and there are plenty more on the way.
Here’s a listing of apples in Bucks and nearby that are available for sale and for pick-your-own, as of October 5, […]
Cross the finish line to support local food and farmers this Saturday, September 3, right through Delaware Valley University‘s scenic campus.
Shopping local is one way you can give back to the community and support your area’s farmers. You might know that agriculture is Pennsylvania’s largest industry, but did you know that there are more than 1,000 farm markets and community farmers’ markets in the state? You’ll find Pennsylvania produce year-round, but some of the tastiest fruits and vegetables flourish in […]
We think we’ve done a pretty good job at hyping up all the end-of-summer produce, and we don’t plan on stopping! This week’s farmers market report covers what’s new as well as some good tips on tomatoes—like how to cook and freeze them. As for what is available, just about everything you can grow in Bucks County […]
Happy Monday! Let’s hope that the heat wave ends soon so that we can step outside without instantly being drenched in sweat.
They say one way to beat the heat is to continuously drink water. I think that’s boring, so I spike my water with fresh fruit and herbs. Pick up some peaches, berries or […]
Sorry to interrupt your day but this message is brief: You can now pick your own watermelons.
You can also buy local, fresh watermelon at certain farmers markets in the area, but at Peace Valley Winery, you can pick-your watermelons as the fields open today, August 3 at 10 am. The price is […]
