Weekend Activities on the ESVA – April 27

Things are just getting started at Pickett’s Harbor Farms this season…. Sure it’s a little slow as the only crop in season right now is asparagus. We are so happy that many of you are willing to stop by the farm just to pick up this delectable veggie while waiting for our other crops to come in (did we mention strawberries will be here soon?).

For those of you who are looking for something to do this weekend AND who would enjoy asparagus or sweet potatoes, why not hop on the ESVA House and Garden Tour? Visit our friends at the neighboring Pickett’s Harbor Beach House and on your way out of Pickett’s Harbor Drive, pick up your asparagus or sweet potatoes for dinner.

As you continue on the tour “up the Shore,” stop into see our friends at Brown Dog Ice Cream in Cape Charles. They will be opening their 2013 season and you may be certain our fresh fruits will soon appear in some of their sweet frozen treats as summer approaches! Also in Cape Charles is the Historic Palace Theatre and the adjacent Stage Door Gallery – a great place to view the works of local artists.

See you soon on the Farm!

A restaurant focused on sweet potatoes?! That’s ‘Hayma-zing’

HB1 Pickett’s Harbor Farms loves providing fresh produce to our neighbors on the Shore. Sometimes, we are fortunate enough to supply local eateries and neighboring Hampton Roads establishments with our yummy produce!
The Handsome Biscuit in Norfolk, VA is just one of these places. The Handsome Biscuit is BIG on sweet potatoes. To find out just how big, check out our friend Lorraine Eaton’s latest blog:

Pickett’s Harbor Farms is proud to be a supplier of sweet potatoes to the Handsome Biscuit. If you can’t make it to the Eastern Shore, stop in and see Dave and the gang. They will help you get your sweet potatoes fix!
