Oh sure. The kids get to have all the fun. There are all kinds of summer camp programs for children but what about us grown-ups? We like to pet animals too.
Here’s your chance. Fulper Family Farmstead, a fifth generation dairy farm just outside Lambertville, is hosting a weekend getaway for adults on [...]
Welcome to spring showers! Yes, we’ve been getting some much needed rain, but unfortunately it will be coming on Saturday this weekend. Mother’s Day looks good, though. Sunny and 67°. And there is plenty going on this weekend too.
Farm markets. Two markets are opening this weekend. The long-awaited Sandy Ridge Farm Market [...]
It has been happening slowly but steadily. What began as “this is a good thing to do,” has now become, “this is good.” First I had to convince Mark, the big steak guy. “Isn’t it leaner and tougher?” he asked warily. But it wasn’t and we agreed, this is good.
I’m talking about buying grass-fed [...]

Spring is here, with joyous signs of new life around Bucks County. Part of our annual Spring welcome is enjoying the classic symbol of new life – the egg. Candy eggs are one thing, but selecting eggs to dye for Easter and eat the [...]
If you’re like me, I start to crave fresh vegetables this time of year. While we are still some months away from our local growing season, it’s a good time to join up with a community supported agriculture (CSA) farm. Here’s some general information and a list of CSAs that still have shares available.
It may be winter but plenty is still going on at area farms. We checked in with two local farmers to find out how they spend the winter months.
For Joanna and Marc Michini of Purely Farm’s Naturally Pasture-Raised Meats not much changes in their daily routine year round. They raise pigs, chickens, lambs and [...]
If you’ve never been to a working dairy farm you owe it to yourself – and your children – to visit one – before they are all gone. The family-run small dairy farm is a vanishing breed.
I spent some time recently at the Fulper Farm in West Amwell, NJ, a 5th generation [...]
If it’s October than it must be Oktoberfest time! Check out Oktoberfest celebrations – emphasis on the beer – at the Washington House in Sellersville Friday evening.

Apples are beginning to ripen in local orchards in a big way.
Solebury Orchards is picking Honey Crisp and Gala apples now. You can pick your own there too. Check their website for updates. They may have some peaches still left this weekend. On Saturday and Sunday during the apple harvest [...]
If the local food movement is all about knowing where your food comes from, then you’ve got to go to Bolton’s.
“How cool is it to come to the farm and buy right from it?” says Torrie Bolton, who with her brother, Todd, run this third generation family farm in Silverdale, Pa. “We’re raising turkeys [...]
There is a gem in Buckingham. You’ve probably passed it many times, whizzing by on 413 on your way to somewhere. Maybe you can be forgiven for missing the small sign, which states that Blue Moon Acres Farm is open Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 am to 4 pm. There they grow exquisite [...]
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere, you probably know that our local strawberry season is in full swing. This weekend there are four Strawberry Festivals stretching from one end of the county to another. At Shady Brook Farm (Yardley) and Tabora Farm (Hilltown) you can pick your own as [...]
Here chick, chick, chick. Did you know you can “rent” a couple of small chicks for Easter here in Bucks County? Ya gotta love it. The Happy Farm up in Kintersville does this every year. Here’s how it works: come to the farm at 1911 Gallows Hill Road on April 6th, 7th [...]
I’m craving real green this time of year and Spring is still not quite here. So I popped into some local greenhouses – Milk House Farm Market in Upper Makefield Township and Blue Moon Acres in Buckingham – to take in some beautiful edible greens.
You can buy these greens at [...]
