Fall Squash

Fall Squash 

We grow a number of beautiful varieities of fall squash: Butternut, buttercup (Kabocha), acorn squash, Blue Hubbard, (a huge squash that stores well and provides lots of meat), spaghetti squash, delicata, and sweet dumpling.  Started in late May in the greenhouse and transferred to the field 3 weeks later, our squash are grown using plastic mulch and trickle irrigation. They ripen in early September, and are popular with Pick Your Own crowd because they store well in cool places like cellars.

Squash are revered the world over for their high nutritional content, ease of growing, and ease of storage. Their meaty flesh can be prepared in dozens of interesting ways. Come on out this fall and pick a bushel to last through the winter! You can also find our fall squash at our Farm Stand.
