Open from May 20th to Thanksgiving Monday through Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 10am-5pm. At Killdeer Farm green life is stirring; the first Greenhouse Tomatoes have been seeded and are large enough to be carefully grafted. Some early herbs and flowers are just popping up in our earliest green house. The rest of the greenhouses were thoroughly cleaned and sanitized late in the fall and are now ready for their new guests. Seeds are ordered and arriving, and plans for crops are coming together.
Farm stand hours are Monday through Saturday 10am-6p and Sunday 10am-5pm. Throughout the season they offer an abundance of fresh vegetables, berries, and flowers grown right here on there farm. From the earliest of the spring greens right through to the pumpkins and storage crops, our produce is of the highest quality, grown with care, and always certified organic.
Open from June to October Monday to Saturdays 10-5:30pm and Sundays 10-4:30pm. They restock daily from the fields and coolers on to the shelves insuring the very freshest produce for our Upper Valley community. In addition, they have an extensive offering of prepared foods from our onsite kitchen! Originally intended as a way to use excess produce from the farm fields for value added products at the farmstand, the kitchen has since become an important enterprise on many other levels. In addition to the summer salads, breads and cookies that we originally envisioned and produce during the retail farmstand season, the kitchen has branched out to make products for the Fall CSA memberships (soups, salads, roasted vegetables, baked goods, etc.) as well as doing custom orders for patron pick-up.
