The Vegetable Farm Stand
It has always been the intent of GreenFriends Farm to expand from fruit to include vegetables. Over the past year or so, the team and volunteers have been preparing the vegetable garden area, and planting began early this year.
The harvesting of the vegetables has begun and a vegetable stand will open on August 18th, 2023 by the kitchen tent. The vegetables will only be available at the vegetable stand and in cash-only transactions. The opening times are 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday and 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday (19th August). The GreenFriends Farm newsletter will include opening times in the future.
This is a pilot program. And may expand to include the sale of vegetables through the website.
What are we growing? Below in the gallery, you can see the types of vegetables being grown.
This week we have kale, cucumbers, summer squashes, and beans.
In the next few weeks tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and okra are expected to be available.
