Garden Bounty

One customer of Metzger Heritage Farm enjoyed these fresh vegetables this week! We have good supplies of string beans (purple, wax, green) for a few more pickings. The late planting of green beans will be ready in early September (if the frost holds off). The pickling cucumbers are very prolific this year and we continue to pick them daily. There is also a good supply of Swiss chard, and zucchini. We have some crook-neck summer squash and carrots and will have lots of round zucchini in the next few days. If you'd like new potatoes (red or white), let us know and we'll dig some for you. Some have asked about sweet corn. We selected two varieties this year, one of which was completely consumed by foraging crows shortly after it was planted. The other variety is probably two or three weeks out.
If you'd like to share in the bounty, please call (814-274-8004) or e-mail (, and place your order. We can arrange delivery or you may pick up at the farm.
