Located at 27 S. Pine St in Kingston (map it), the stand’s hours are 3PM – 6PM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays… Now through November 23rd!

Farmers Trish Hawkins and Joel Zenie would like to share with you this letter they recently penned to some local flora and fauna:

Dear Dr. Kale, the Collards, and Miss Mustard Greens,

Thank you, loyal friends. You’ve been with us from the start and now, it being Fall, you’ve caught some beneficial chill and will provide your good green leaves to human customers until our season’s end.

Dear Human Friends, come one come all to get your healthy Autumn greens (and root crops) at the Farm. We’ll be open Monday-Wednesday-Friday from 3 to 6 pm until November 23.

Hearty thanks to all,
Trish and Joel

P.S. Don’t come if there’s a blizzard! In any case, we’ll reunite in Spring.
