Harvest Pick-Up
May 24 to October 04, 2017
Wednesdays 4:00pm to 7:00pm

Produce is picked fresh each week on Wednesdays (the pick-up day) starting very early in the morning. Our staff works quickly to sort, rinse, bundle and package everything to maintain quality and freshness.

The harvest is made available to our member’s in in a “farm market” setting on wagons and tables. Chalkboards are used for identification and recommendations of the quantity to take. Members are able fill their bag with what they would like to take home.

“The very best way to experience everything grown at its peak flavor and freshness!”

While at the farm, members and their family can tour Charmingfare Farm and visit the bears, wolves, etc. See and learn all about how food is grown and pick fresh herbs and flowers from the gardens. Food left over at the end of the day is collected and offered to the local food bank.

Vegetable Harvest Chart
Please keep in mind that growing food in New England is an unpredictable project at best. Charmingfare Farm makes every effort to provide a diverse selection of crops for the longest possible harvest; however, shareholders should expect some variation to the harvest chart. Some crops may not produce as well as hoped and others are likely to produce more then expected.
