Wild Berry Time at Town Farm

Posted 6/30/2014 8:27pm by OONA COY & BEN JAMES.

Hi Everyone—currants

It's wild berry time here in Northampton, and we are pleased. I hope you've had the chance to enjoy the black caps and mulberries along the bike path and elsewhere in town. The boys and I are ever on the lookout for the perfect mulberry tree. If you have coordinates on a good (publicly accessible) one, please let me know.

Here on the farm the red currants have ripened. We make these into our distinctive & delicious red currant syrup, which we pour onto our shaved ices at Market. It's Oona's and my favorite flavor, and so far as I know there's nowhere else anywhere that you can get yourself a homemade, hand-cranked, red currant shaved ice!

Now's the moment for sugarsnaps. They are at their peak, and their season is ever so short, so come find them at Market, too, alongside the carrots, beets, fresh onions, summer broccoli(!), and abundant greens.

Hope your days are marvelous in this first burst of summer!sugarsnaps

 Hey, Tuesday Market is 1:30 - 6:30 every Tuesday, and Town Farm is always there.
