Farms stands will thrive this season


Summer is around the corner, and another delightful season is upon us. Farmers’ markets will once again bring the season’s bounty front and center.

Matthew and Jen Huddleston at 2 High Street, Middlefield grew (and sold) organic Long Neck garlic last year.

J.C. Farm and Greenhouses, 385 Route 68, Durham, has provided a large assortment of vegetables, fruits, mums, and pumpkins.

Midway Farms farm stand at 477 Route 68, Durham, is owned by Steve Grozinsky. They have also had a wide assortment of fruits and vegetables, as well as maple syrup, applesauce, honey, mums, and pies in fall. The stand and farm are named after the battle at Midway during World War II. The family has owned the property since 1880 with the stand running since 1990. Prior to that, it was a poultry farm for many years.

Last season, Deerfield Farm at 337 Parmelee Hill Road, Durham provided raw milk (due to regulations, the flavored milk was not raw), handcrafted milk soap, cheese, yogurt, eggs, and meat. The owner, Melynda Naples, raises the animals, and makes the cheese and yogurt. The store is self-serve, open every day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., year-round. In the winter, due to slow milk production of the cows, it’s a good idea to call ahead and reserve an order of milk.

Main Street Feed, 58 Main St., Durham sells eggs. The owner, Brenda Eddy, sells eggs laid by her many free range hens, as well as eggs from other local chicken coops.

Naples Farm,167 Bear Rock Road, Durham planned to move their roadside stand to a spot near the barn, and will be self-serve, open 24-hours a day.
