Bures Berry Patch
It’s fall at the Patch and we’ve got all the colors that go with it! Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, even Black pumpkins to make your porch look sensational! We’ll be at market this Saturday with loads of great pumpkins as well as delicious acorn, spaghetti, butternut, and delicata squash, plus honey. We had 3 nights of frost here and the 3rd night did our raspberries in so they are no longer available, sad I know. Want to pre-order for curbside pickup? Our online store is open now for pre-orders. Can’t make it to market this week?  Come visit us at the Patch! We’re open Thursday – Sunday from 10 am – 5 pm. At the Patch you can find fabulous pumpkins for decorations and some delicious squash for the dinner table. Bring the kids/grandkids with for an adventure! We’ve got free hayrides, a kiddie corn maze, and they can feed our chickens! They’ll love it! To learn more about what’s happening in the Patch check out our website, sign up for our newsletter, or follow us on Facebook. Hope to see you in the Patch or at market soon!

Shooting Star Farm
Light frost here Monday morning did a bit of damage to a few weeds and some old bean and zucchini plants, but otherwise mainly spared everything else in the fields. This week looks to be pretty similar to last in terms of product. A few new items will include a French shallot/bottle onion cross called an eschalion, some very small kohlrabi, and possibly spinach (needs to grow…). Other than that, I’ll have small lettuce heads, leeks, yellow and red onions, shallots, carrots, celery, curly and Lacinato kale, mixed sweet peppers, a few hot peppers (jalapeno and Anaheim), green and red cabbage, purple cauliflower, fennel, red radishes, basil bunches (hopefully…), honey nut squash, a smattering of tomatoes, arugula, and some salad mix which will be heavy on the non-lettuce portion. If you’d like to pre-order for Market pick-up, you can do so here beginning at 6pm Wednesday evening. See you Saturday!

Two Onion Farm
Hello! Juli is excited to join Mineral Point Farmers’ Market with delicious organic apples, applesauce and apple butter. Juli will be at the market 4 times this fall: 8/29, 9/12, 9/26 and 10/10. Our farm is 10 minutes from the market by Belmont. Our apple varieties offer diverse flavors and textures that you won’t find in the supermarket. We’ve selected these varieties because they taste great and because they are naturally resistant to diseases. Our applesauce and apple butter are cooked from organic apples grown in our orchard and seasoned gently with spices. We add no sugar. Our apple butter is delicious served with cheese and crackers or spread on toast, bread, and pancakes. Do you like to make your own applesauce? We have slightly-blemished apples for sale at a discounted price ($1.45/lb for orders up to 100 lbs; $1.25/lb for 100-250 lbs, $1.05/lb for 250+ lbs). These are perfect for baking, making applesauce, drying, or juicing. Email twoonionfarm@gmail.com to place an order in 5# increments. Juli will be at the market 4 times this fall: 8/29, 9/12, 9/26 and 10/10. Please specify the date you’d like to pick up the processing apples. Visit our website to learn more about us!
