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’s common at this time of year to look back and reflect on the year that has been. It’s been a good one for Bucks County food. I’ve been privileged to write about many interesting people and great food. As I reviewed my posts, I decided that rather than do a “best of” piece, I’d [...]
Some sad news first. The Wycombe Pub and Grill will be closing its doors this Wednesday (tomorrow) due to family health issues. We’ve gotten to love this unassuming bar – truly a pub in the English sense – where locals gather to share a beer, watch a game and kid around with the bartenders. Wycombe [...]
If you thought winter approaching meant giving up local produce, eggs, cheese and more, you’re mistaken.
Lower Makefield farmer Sandy Guzikowski has been watching the past few years to see what vegetables and fruit are available from our local farmers during the winter months. She’s counted over 30 types of produce. Surprised? And it’s not [...]
Here’s a tidbit from the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Group‘s (NESAWG) monthly news digest.
The weather this year has been ideal for apples with the crop estimated to be 30 million apples in New York State alone. The New York Apple Association and apple farmers have collaborated to produce a website,
As a member of the Anchor Run Farm CSA (community supported agriculture), we receive weekly updates from our farmers, Dana Hunting and Derek McGeehan. I always enjoy their emails. They are a cross between farm report and nature essay. I like them too because they inform and educate, sharing how my vegetables grow [...]
What do you think the “don’t miss” food experiences are in Bucks County and nearby? A delicious burger, a delightful cocktail, a perfect view? Or how about the “feel” of the place, and the way the bartender or wait staff know you, and what you like. What are your favorite experiences and places to go [...]
Just saw Fred Slack putting his “corn & tomatoes for sale” sign up on Forest Grove Rd. Finally!
Correction: Just corn for now. He covered up the “tomatoes” part of the sign. Guess they’re not ready (sigh).
Let’s not even go there. I am so sick of talking, thinking, feeling and expressing myself about this “lovely” weather. Onward!
The vegetables seem to be enjoying the weather, although we do very much need rain. Tomatoes are showing up, all blushing and red. Corn abounds. Peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots. And you’ll also find at [...]
It’s been slowly popping up – for sale – here and there, but I’ve heard from some of the major farms that it’s “in.” Shady Brook Farm in Yardley (and at The Market at Del Val), None Such Farm in Buckingham, Solly’s Farm in Ivyland, and
At the risk of being corny (get it?), I keep wanting to break into song. Rodgers & Hammerstein, of course. “Oh what a beautiful mo-o-ornin’, oh what a beautiful d-a-ay…” or “…the corn is as high as an elephant’s eye!” (Both lines actually written here in Bucks, at Hammerstein’s place, Highland Farm, on [...]
I never used to like peaches. It was the fuzz. Gave me the chills. But somewhere along the way I got over it. And Fairview Farm peaches certainly helped. They are now in season and available in their farm market store in Pineville. They don’t have a website but they are just down Pineville Road [...]
Dare I say it? The July 4th weekend is looking pretty darn good weather-wise. Perfect for eating Bucks County bounty on the grill or otherwise.
Grilling it up for the Fourth. If you still haven’t picked up some meat or seafood for the grill, check out some of our past articles. For where to find [...]
