Springtime in the Orchard

One of our most frequently asked questions at the Farmers Market is "where are you all located?" We are located about 2 hours away, in Cashtown, Pennsylvania, just outside of Historic Gettysburg.  We are tucked in a very special part of the country - the South Mountain Fruit Belt - which has ideal terrain and soils for growing fruit.  There are over 15,000 acres of orchards in our county alone, which makes for spectacular scenery. For the first time, ever, we are opening our doors to our Farmers Market customers!  The orchard is breathtaking in the spring, and hopefully, we'll have a beautiful spring bloom for you to see.  We've planned orchard tours with Sidney, Anthony, Dave and Mary Margaret, an orchard scavenger hunt, farm equipment display, and activities for the kids.  We'll have samples galore of apples, canned peaches, applesause, apple butter and all of our jams. You can even bring your own picnic lunch. Springtime in the Orchard is a free event.  Please mark your calendar for Springtime in the Orchard, and let us know you are planning to attend either on Facebook or register here. We hope you'll plan for a day trip, or even a weekend away!  More Read More...

How to Peel a Peach

Web Recipe Tile - Peel PeachLearn from Mary Margaret and Diane how to peel a peach easily.  Granted, they have both had plenty of practice at market cutting samples for all of our customers.  But, as with most things, practice makes perfect! It is best to peel a peach when it is perfectly ripe.  You can tell a peach is ripe when it gives slightly under your finger tips.  (This same rule applies to nectarines, plums, and apricots.)  If you try to peel an unripe peach, you will waste a lot of the flesh and, frankly, become frustrated.  Ripen peaches on the counter top.
