The Berry Patch Farm Store has started its’ summer schedule of 10 AM - 6 PM on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Michelle Todd and Autumn McManus from M and A Farm in Petersburgh NY are operating the store this summer, with an expanded range of products including their own fresh vegetables, chicken and pork, and other local farm products. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, tomatoes, and melons grown by Dale-Ila and Don will still be featured prominently in the store.
Blueberry season is starting! We will have small quantities until the middle of July and expect larger quantities after that. Stay tuned for PYO Blueberry opportunities! Our wonderful ever-bearing strawberries should also be starting around the middle of July and look for our melons in late July/early August. Cherry tomatoes and heirloom tomatoes are also starting to trickle in!
Dale-Ila and Don are still at the Troy Waterfront Farmers Market every Saturday. The summer season Troy Waterfront Farmers Market is held outdoors on River Street. We are the first (northern most) booth on the left as you approach the market from the Uncle Sam’s Parking Garage. The market is open 9:00AM to 2:00PM.
We are the first farm in the country to successfully protect our blueberry and raspberry crops from an invasive insect -- without pesticides -- by using exclusion netting. If you are interested in ordering some netting for your own berry planting for the 2019 season, please contact us.
