"To call this Schoonmaker Family spot our local farm stand would be to sell them way short. Our daily morning ritual isn’t complete without stopping there to get our morning coffee and the best just out of the machine homemade donuts you can find in the area. And besides the usual organic farmed seasonal produce from their lands, they also have delicious grab and go prepared foods, grass fed beef, Kate’s cookies, Talenti ice-cream and so much more. They only problem is that as farmers, they close the doors from Christmas through March and it makes the winter harder on us than a blizzard!"
"You'll find me at Blooming Hill Farm with my family most weekends for brunch. Blooming Hill is all organic and their brunch and dinner menus feature their fabulous produce. Founder, Guy Jones, is a fountain of information regarding farming and growing a vegetable garden."
"Cherries, lettuce, rhubarb, peas or peaches—whatever they’re growing, whatever’s in season, it’s all fresh, all local, and all delicious from these wonderful family-run farms. Plus, I can never resist a taste-test of the jam selection."
“Although I plan plenty of events at Blue Hill, I never grow tired of touring the farm, learning about sustainability and visiting my favorite animals. Get a healthy little lunch at the cafe while you’re there."
