Wow! This spring has sure been a whirlwind. We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their overwhelming support of our family farm. It has been wonderful to see old friends and to make some new ones along the way. Our mostly new staff has stepped up and met the challenge of keep our lines moving while our returning staff kept the tables and shelves full. We are so appreciative everyone’s patience with all the new changes and their ability to adapt to all the changes we had to make along the way. We stand here grateful, tired and blessed.
That being said, we still have a lot of great flowers and preplanted containers. We might not have every variety or color anymore but we still have a nice selection to choose from. This week we will be ordering in more perennials to supplement the selection of what we grow. More shrubs will be also be coming in by the weekend. But the annuals and vegetables are what we have is all we will have for the year. Since we order our baby plants for the following year almost a year in advance, it was impossible to predict what this spring would bring last July.
As a result, we are temporarily suspending our online ordering and curbside pickup except for the few items still remaining in our online store. The supply is changing too quickly to properly estimate availability at this time. We will be bringing it back when our farm market opens June 26th!
Some of the produce items have begun to make their annual appearance in our market…..we have eggs fresh from Getzelman’s farm here in Hampshire, Fresh salsa….hot, mild and verde from One More Salsa in Sycamore, Norwegian Sea Salt Spice Mixes from Wunderlust Sea Salt Company in Hoffman Estates, Bean Dust from Bean’s Farm in Hampshire, Uncle Dougies Grilling Sauces from Uncle Dougies, Local Honey currently from Charter Grove in Kingston, Dreymiller and Kray’s delicious bacon, sausage, cheese and coming soon….brats! And Coming Soon………MILK HOUSE ICE CREAM! I’m so excited!!! It will be a great addition to go with our delicious pies. New items will be added daily to give us a nice selection of local goodies to go with our fresh produce!
June is going to be an exciting month with daily and weekly changes. So stop in often to see what is new here at Prairie View.
