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 [...]
If some of these “scattered thunderstorms” can hold off, it looks like a pretty decent weekend. Which is great news if you are heading over to the 2011 Middletown Grange Fair. We will be going tonight – for the BBQ Chicken Dinner, of course, and to see the bunnies and maybe buy a [...]
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 [...]
It’s here. It’s official. Even with a little hot weather today, there is no doubt about it. September is here, along with lots of great food events. In particular, we have a whole crop of farm-to-table dinners coming up that I want to highlight.
This Sunday, September 12th, the Bucks [...]
We spent a long weekend in Kentucky, tasting good bourbon and visiting distilleries. What fun! But we are very glad to be in our ‘Old Bucks Home’ (sorry, Stephen Foster). I had forgotten just how much fried, salty food there is in the South. I know they must have fresh vegetables and [...]
Eating outside, enjoying a beautiful summer evening with new friends, and then walking around a small, family farm, learning how they produce their bounty. Sounds good, no?
Check it out. The Bucks County Foodshed Alliance, in lieu of their regular monthly meetings, “meets” at local farms once a month during [...]
Amy Manoff suggests keeping the apples as cold as possible without freezing. Manoff’s has 3 varieties left for sale – [...]
I have to admit something. Just a couple of weeks ago I was worried that food events were going to slow down towards the holidays. I know that seems counter-intuitive – I mean, sometimes that seems the main activity this time of year – but not a lot was showing up for the calendar. But, [...]

Autumn means more than pumpkins at Bucks County farms and farm markets; it also means a parade of apples that change weekly, each with its own personality and flavor.
With enticing names such as Zestar, Honey Crisp, Cortland, Macoun, Mutsu, Keepsake, Gala, Fuji, Jonagold, Jonathan, Empire, McIntosh, [...]
“Can you believe it’s Labor Day?” That’s what everyone seems to be saying. But we welcome the cooler weather and the increase in food activities in Bucks County and nearby. Lots of fun stuff to do this weekend, and in the weeks to come. Check out our calendar of Food Events in Bucks [...]
The potluck supper begins at 6:30pm and is followed at 7:30pm by the farmer-guided tour of one of the area’s premier small farms. There is no charge [...]
It’s been a busy week. We were thrilled at the wonderful article this past Wednesday by Betty Cichy in the Bucks County Courier Times /Intelligencer about Bucks County Taste. We were even more blown away by the site “hits” we got. Those of you who checked us out for the first time – thank [...]

I know I’ve said it before, but it’s really here. Summer, that is. The first local corn is coming in (none of that Su’thun stuff). I know for sure you can get some at None Such Farm Market. Be on the look-out at your local farms and stores, and let me know where [...]
