The Grandpa's Roadstand is our Farm Market
Each day we are checking the fields for freshly ripened produce to stock the recently opened Grandpa's Roadstand. Items that are ripening daily include; sweet corn, potatoes, slicing cucumbers, green beans, kohlrabi, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers and vine ripened tomatoes. We have been busy on the farm growing fresh vegetables for you.
In June some of the first crops available are Sugar Snap Peas, Slicing Cucumbers, and Kohlrabi. We get very excited when the first tomatoes start coming in June. As the growing season continues into July, we slowly add over 22 different varieties of veggies as they mature and ripen. The crops are first sold at Grandpa’s Roadstand, until there is enough quantity in the fields for Pick Your Own an activitiy inculed in Joyer Adventure Farm.
- Sweet Corn is being picked daily amount depends on the drought
- Pickling Cucumbers: a single peck to several bushels call (651) 780-1207 to get on the list.
- You can order cucumbers to be picked in the following sizes:
- Peppers: we grow 20,000 pepper plants of 39 different varieties. It typically takes us 2 days to plant them all.
- Watermelon and Muskmelon! Soooo goooood.
- Wide variety of Winter Squash
- Honey from the fields of Waldoch Farm
|2-3” cucumbers:||Great for baby pickles or sweet pickles|
|2-3 ½” cucumbers|
|Field Run 2-4” cucumbers:||Our favorite, good range of sizes. You can use the 4” ones to stuff the bottom of the jar and the 2” to fill in the top of the jar.|
|Bread and Butter cucumbers:||great for slicing or pickle spears.|
We grow a lot of different crops; they are not always in season and can sell out during the day. Something unique to Waldoch Farm is our fields are on the same land as the Garden Center and most days we can just drive out and pick more if Grandpa’s Roadstand needs more. Now that is fresh!
