Fresh Produce: Grandpa’s Roadstand
Grandpa’s Roadstand is our Farm Market
Each day, we check the fields for freshly ripened produce to stock Grandpa's Roadstand. Freshly ripened items available daily include: sweet corn, potatoes, slicing cucumbers, green beans, kohlrabi, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers and vine ripened tomatoes. What makes Waldoch Farm unique is that our fields are on the same land as the Garden Center, which means we can drive out to the field and grab more produce if Grandpa’s Roadstand runs low. Talk about fresh!
In June, some of the first crops available are Sugar Snap Peas, Slicing Cucumbers, and Kohlrabi. 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. Once there is enough quantity in the fields, we open the field for “Pick Your Own”, an activity included with a Joyer Adventure Farm ticket purchase!
