Thanksgiving is coming....

With Thanksgiving just around the corner that means time to bake apple pies.  We happen to have the best apples at Garside's Fruit Farm for just that.  Our Bramley Apple is rated the best baking apple out there!  When we bake a pie, we actually use a combination of the Bramley and Boskoop Apples.  They both keep their shape nicely in a pie and don't turn to mush.  Also the combination of their flavours and textures make a very tasty pie or crisp.  Stay tuned to our website, we will have a whole post on baking a pie with Garside Fruit Farm Apples, complete with photos.

We have a several varieties of apples ready at the farm:  Prima, Boskoop, Bramley and King Apples.  These are all available for $1.25 a pound, with the exception of the Prima Apple it is only $1.00 per pound.  Also available are Zucchinis and Cherry tomatoes.  The Zucchinis are $0.75 each no matter the size, and the tomatoes are a one pound basket for $3.00.

As an alternative to Turkey why not try a delicious Garside's Fruit Farm Roasting Chicken.  The average size of our chickens is about six pounds.  We do have larger and smaller available.  They are fed a top quality, locally produced grain with no hormones or antibiotics.  They have access to outside pasture.  A good healthy alternative to the turkey.  The chickens are available for $3.75/lb.
