Today was the last day of the Sweet Corn harvest. We are grateful to have been able to harvest this long, since we had a late start back in August.
We have completed the Pinto and Bolita harvest. Beans are still available in our Farm Market. The 25 lb. Pintos have sold, but we still have 10 lb. Pintos and New Crop Pintos in 25 lb. bags from Ness Farms in Estancia, NM. Bolitas are still available in all sizes.
What else is in the Farm Market, you may ask... We are still harvesting potatoes, dry onions and winter squash. Carrots, beets, broccoli, cabbage, green beans and other produce listed at the Schwebach Farm Market page.
Our potatoes and onions store quite well in a dark, cool location. And winter squash was designed to last through the long winter months before refrigeration and grocery stores. In a cool, dry location much of the winter squash/pie pumpkins will store for 3 to 6 months.
So, please come see us as we anticipate the Farm Market being open through October 19th. After that we will be available "on call" for any remaining produce available.
Just what are we still doing here at the farm? We are shredding sweet corn, running the disc through the fields, planting winter cover crops, baling alfalfa, clearing out our hoop house, harvesting winter squash and preparing the drip system for our first frost. And, we will have popcorn and non-gmo food grain corn to harvest next month.
Enjoy some fall photos as we wind down our harvest season!
