Late summer is a fantastic season for food lovers. Sweet corn, tomatoes, melons and peaches are abundant and at their best. Early season versions of these crops are tempting when they fort hit the market in July but mid and late season varieties often have better size and flavor. And are usually cheaper, too.
Fresh From Bucks County Farms will lead you to forty-four vegetable farms, eight wineries, thirteen places where you can get locally grown beef, lamb, chicken or pork. Even more places for eggs. Local meat producers will sell you as little as a steak or as much as a quarter, half …or whole steer!
Parsnips, pears, plums. Beets, beans bok choy. Radishes, raspberries, rhubarb. Grass fed, organic, free range. Wine, watermelon, wildflower honey. You’ll find it all in Fresh From Bucks County Farms.
