FARM STAND FINAL
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 18 was the last day of self-service fruit retail 2012 up here. It just got too cold for the fruit to sit out (we would have closed it the day before Thanksgiving anyway). Our next retail fruit season should be pick-your-own raspberries and pie cherries in July – seems far away now. BUT…
GROWLER DAY GOES ON, most Thursdays all winter, 12-6pm down in the cider room. Please check the calendar or join us on Facebook for specific growler info. (BRING ID if you join us in person, please.)
Cider orchards the world around sell their fermentations to locals who bring in refillable containers. They’ve done it for centuries, we’ve done it for about five years now. Here, you come taste through the ciders on offer, buy a half-gallon growler for $2 if you need one, fill it for $12, refill on future Thursdays. During these hours you can also buy any of the FH blends now in bottle.
P.S. Kindly understand that we don’t redeem the one-time $2 fee for your growler bottles: the whole idea is for you to keep’em and keep refilling’em. (If you go off cider, pass them along to others. They also convert very nicely into lamps.)
Also, find our alcoholic Farnum Hill ciders locally in stores listed on the Where-To-Buy page: NH liquor stores, the Co-ops, Price Choppers, etc.
Summer Pick-Your-Own, 2012 Recap: Raspberries ALL DONE July 28.
Pick-Your-Own RASPBERRIES, & BLACKCURRANTS were excellent while they lasted. This was not a bumper berry year.
The pie cherries were nipped in the bud during April, unfortunately.
