How to place a Farmers Market Order

For years, Kuhn Orchards has been willing to take special orders from our customers for produce that they plan to pick up at market.  We have operated on good faith that the customer will show up and pay for the item.  However, we have had many instances where customers have not picked up items that they ordered or asked us to save for them, and often, we could have sold these items to other interested customers. So after much thinking and discussion, we have decided that we will now only take prepaid orders from our customers.  This is especially important to us in a year where we have had lots of freeze damage in the spring, and have such a limited supply of certain fruits.  It is always best to arrive early at market in order to chose from the best selection of produce available. In addition to requiring payment upfront for the order, we are also now asking customers to please call our office (717-334-2722) to place an order instead of making arrangements with market staff.  With our limited supply, we'd hate for a farmers market employee to take an order, only to realize when they return to the farm that Read More...

Crop 101: Raspberries

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA We grow an array of raspberry varieties and colors. We grow both summer-bearing and fall-bearing red raspberries. Summer-bearing raspberries (also known as floricane-fruiting) produce fruit on one year old canes (the fruiting branches or wood) that are overwintered from the previous year.  Our harvest season for summer-bearing red raspberries is typically from mid-June to the end of July. Fall-bearing raspberries (also known as primocane-fruiting) produce fruit on the new canes that start growing in the spring of each year.  Each fall we cut down the primocanes and the new canes will push out of the ground in the spring.  The fall-bearing red raspberries begin to fruit in August and continue producing berries until the first fall killing frost. By growing both floricane and primocane red raspberries, we are able to extend our growing season, and have a continuous supply of raspberries for multiple moths of the farmers market season. We also grow black raspberries and fall-bearing yellow raspberries - which were actually developed as a mutation from a red raspberry. Black Raspberries are a summer-bearing raspberry with a very short harvest season – typically lasting only 2 weeks. Black raspberries are smaller than other raspberries, and have a more tart and earthy flavor. Black Read More...

Radish Recipes

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe have harvested some very lovely radishes (specifically lots of French Breakfast Radishes), and I realize that we don't have very many radish recipes posted on our website. If the radishes are tantalizing you, we thought we'd give you some suggestions for recipes.  And like 99% of people, when you don't know what to make, you turn to the world wide web! Here are some nice compilations of radish recipes.  Radishes have a peppery flavor and a dynamic crunch when raw. But you can also cook them.  Enjoy! Food Network, a few highlights Braised Radishes, Sauteed Radishes with Spinach, Roasted Pork Belly with Warm Potatoes and Celery Radish Salad, Orzo Salad with Grape Tomatoes and Radishes.  And the classic:  Radishes with Butter and Salt. Bon Appetit, a few highlights Herby Black Rice Salad with Radishes and Ricotta Salata, Collard Greens and Radish Slaw with Crispy Shallots, Avocado with Radish, Carrots and Pickled Onions Read More...
