It works the same as a CSA during the regular growing season. You buy a share, which gives you produce every week for a certain number of weeks. Our CSA, Anchor Run Farm, offered [...]
Repeat after me…“I will not buy a frozen supermarket turkey this year.” There. Was that so hard? Especially since we’ve pulled together where you can get fresh, natural turkeys in Bucks County – 2013 edition.
Not all are raised here (some come from Lancaster County or New Jersey), but they are all fresh and can [...]
What with losing power all this morning, I’m a little behind on this week’s calendar post. No video this week! You’ll just have to imagine…
Blue Moon Acres in Pennington is celebrating fall with a Food Festival tomorrow, Saturday, from 11 am to 4 pm. The Pennington farm – and its market – [...]
Brenda Slack may come from a multi-generational farming family, but in many ways, she’s the first.
“Farming has always been in my blood,” explains Slack, a former mental health therapist. “I always had a garden. I needed it as my therapy outside of work. I like to be in the sun, in the rain, in [...]
Brrrr. It’s cold out! A nice weekend to curl up by the fireplace…after raking up all the leaves, of course.
Some of the highlights this week?
Farmers’ markets that are saying goodbye and who’s sticking around until Thanksgiving. Oysters. Yes, oysters. And where you can get ‘em in Bucks and nearby (specials too!) Firehouse breakfasts [...]
We live in a county that has much to offer. Rich farmland, comfortable housing, good food and innovative chefs, artisanal ice cream and cheese, tasty meat and beautiful vegetables and fruits. Fortunately, we also have hard-working people who recognize that not everyone in Bucks County can afford to partake in this bounty.
Back in 2009, [...]

It’s apple season! And we are so fortunate in Bucks to have some fantastic orchards here. Here’s a rundown of what’s growing, picking and crunching, and where, followed by my mother’s superb Jewish Apple Cake recipe.
Solebury Orchards is picking Gala, Elstar, and the first Honey Crisp apples now. The Honey Crisp crop [...]
The word for this week – and month – is HARVEST. Everywhere I look on the food calendar there are harvest festivals going on. Farm-to-table dinners, wine festivals and farmers’ markets bursting with beautiful vegetables. Wycombe Vineyards is even calling for volunteer grape-pickers to help bring in their grape harvest (Sunday, 9/15, lunch [...]
September!? Yes, it’s here. And there is SO much going on this coming month in the food calendar: fall harvest events, farm-to-table dinners, beer fests and wine harvest festivals, to name a few.
Pierogi & Kielbasa. This weekend and next is the 48th Polish-American Festival at the National Shrine of [...]
It’s hard to believe it is August for so many reasons. The usual feeling of “where has the time gone” but also this weather! What did we do to deserve such beautiful days in early August? Should be a great night for fireworks in New Hope-Lambertville.
The word this week is PEACHES. Delightful, juicy peaches, [...]
Summer is here. Sure, we’ve had some hot weather and the sweet corn is coming in, but nothing says summer more to me than peaches at Fairview Farm and tomatoes at Fred Slack’s farm. We have arrived.
To get to some of the best peaches in Bucks County, go to the intersection of [...]
Local blueberries are popping up every where and we all want to celebrate. At Terhune Orchards in Princeton this weekend, join them for their annual Blueberry Bash. Pick your own blueberries, enjoy some country music, rides for the kids, a Blueberry Bake-Off (judged by Susan Yeske, from the Bucks County Herald [...]
