UFO Alert!

This month our Patty Pat Squash, aka UFO’s, are in full swing and should be through August. This is an easy summer squash that you can grow too. These have incredible flavor and come in different colors. Our family loves to dice and grill them with salt and pepper. They have a soft skin and taste like butter!Image result for line divider


During our recent “Bees and Shrooms” camp, a worker bee was attracted to a camper. Lola was patient and calm while the little girl explored her hands.

Our farm has Italian Honeybees that are docile but not the best honey producers. Better honey producers are often aggressive. To make sure our farm visitors are greeted by pleasant bees we selected Italians.  

Want your own hives?

We recommend the beekeeping classes offered by the York County Beekeepers Association.
