April is here!

A spoonful of sweetness!

Well the month is here but we are all patiently waiting for the warmth!
SUMMER CROPS:  Yesterday was nice so I took advantage of Easter Break to put my kids, with friends, to work planting seeds in trays. We planted squashes: spaghetti, yellow, zucchini, butternut; beets, jalapeno and cantaloupe. This morning, I hurried to the farm to move them to safer ground before the winds and storms come in later this afternoon.
Sweet corn, butterbeans and crowder peas will go in the ground once it warms up! 
STRAWBERRIES:  They are blooming nicely. We just need warmth and days of sunshine. I could hear the bees as I walked the field yesterday. Anticipate a May opening date.

About Oliver Farms Produce

Located in Smithfield, Oliver Farms, LLC is a working row crop farm with fresh summer produce sold on site as Oliver Farm Produce. We begin each produce year with strawberries in late April while the planting of our summer produce is just beginning. In late June through August we open the door to the "strawberry shack" where we have produce fresh picked daily: sweet corn, butterbeans, edamame and crowder peas. Fall/Thanksgiving and Christmas we re-open the shack where we will sell: collards, cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts and kale - cut the same day you pick up!! Customers can pre-order by emailing: orders@oliverproduce.com
