Our Concord Grapes are now fairly ripe. They are good now, but will be sweeter in the next few weeks. I will start bringing them to market in Princeton today. Plow Creek’s grapes are primarily for the Plow Creek community’s personal use, but we usually have more than we need and open for u-pick by appointment later in the season. If and when they are available for picking, I will post that information here.
