This turned out to be a disappointing year for honey. Our bees didn’t make much. We have now sold about all we have to sell. We hope to have more next summer.


We had honey removed from our hives this week. It is a light, rich flavored wildflower honey with a bit of a minty taste, probably due to the bees feeding on linden (basswood) trees. It will be available at farmers’ markets, our Market Barn, and by order.


Saturday will be our last scheduled market for the year in Princeton. We will have some tomatoes, chestnuts (come by for a free sample of roasted chestnuts), garlic, black walnuts, potatoes, local wildflower honey from our farm, and jam from our berries. We’ll also have some Plow Creek Bakery goodies.


Saturday at Princeton Farmers’ Market we will have a good quantity of red raspberries, ground cherries, and chestnuts. We have a fair amount of tomatoes, but most are not as pretty anymore, so I’m lowering the price by a third (to $1.80 / pound) and we still have canning tomatoes at $12 / half bushel. We also plan to bring black walnuts, garlic, honey (local - from our farm near Tiskilwa), and potatoes. We just made our first batch of red raspberry jam. It is near the end of the watermelon season. Most are good, but maybe a third turn out to be overripe, so we have a full money-back guarantee and you may open your watermelon at the market to check it if you like. We will also have some Plow Creek Bakery goods: breads, rolls, crackers, and cookies.
