Jam & Jelly

Crabapple jelly: goes well on our crumpet muffins,sourdough toasts. We hear many stories about this jelly from our customers, describing their memories of childhoods and grandmothers who made this jelly. It's very popular and sells quickly in our markets and stores we sell in. These fruits are naturally grown. Fresh spring water, crabapples, pectin, sugar.

Concord Grape Jelly: Traditional flavor of a concord grape, these lovely grapes are homegrown naturally- large and thick of essence. Better than the store varieties, we think!

Ambrosia - bicolor sweet corn-SPECIAL: A mid-season corn, but late this year because of weather. Tips of ears didn't fill out well with this corn because of this. Still a great corn.
Our favorite sugar and gold bi-color sweet corn. Retains sweetness and is slow to turn starchy - ie. it keeps in the frig and is not too picky about when it is harvested.
Organically grown, so don't be surprised if an occasional corn worm.
Non-GMO !


Cafe - for eating or Fritters/chowder - SPECIAL: A YELLOW "EARLY" CORN. Matured late because of weather - slow start - Great eating still, or for freezing or fritters. We are now harvesting Ambrosia, a bicolor mid season corn which is younger and sweeter for fresh eating - the Cafe, however has more old fashioned corn flavor!
