There is still time to join the Dreyer Farm CSA (Cranford Supports Agriculture) program. By becoming a member, local families are able to enjoy weekly  boxes of the freshest, locally-grown produce and vegetables. By taking part in the program, your family and friends are assured of receiving the best, locally-grown, produce throughout the entire, growing season.

Make plans to stop by Dreyer Farms in Cranford. While there, check out the Produce Boxes. They are available for pickup once a week on a Tuesday or Friday, through the month of October. The basic size, or smallest box, is priced at $23. The box includes whatever fruits and vegetables are available at that particular time of the season. For the week of July 28th, 2015, folks are able to purchase: Tomatoes, Peppers, Eggplant, Corn, Peaches, Spaghetti Squash, Kale, Beans, local Honey, and Basil.

“Be aware that we are now in peak season,” said Jessica Dreyer, who works alongside her Dad, Farmer John Dreyer. “At this moment, peaches, tomatoes, corn, and beans, plus a variety of different hot peppers, beets, carrots, and scallions are readily available.”

Whether you sign up for the program, or visit on a daily basis, purchasing just what you need to complete your meal, or your tossed salad, know that you will be enjoying the taste of farm-fresh flavors.

What is even more exciting, is that Dreyer Farms is now baking fresh-from-the-farm fruit pies. In addition to Apple, you may choose from Blueberry, Cherry, Lemon, Blueberry Buckle, and so much more. 

(Having just visited the Farm, I was informed that folks may join at any time. My suggestion would be to stop by and  sign up. This way, if you have any further questions, they’ll be answered immediately.)  

In addition to all that is taking place at this most exciting local farm, Dreyer's now features a huge refrigerator full of milk, cream, half and half, sour cream, cottage cheese, egg nog,  and so much more. But this month’s big surprise is that Dreyer Farms is now featuring WIne

Arriving straight from the Tomasello Winery, located in Hammonton, New Jersey, take time to visit the “New” Wine Section located at Dryer Farms. According to Sales Manager Nadine McEvoy, “This is the first year we are partnering with Dreyer Farms. We are encouraging folks to come and taste our wine. We want people to become familiar with our products.”

Jessica Dreyer a most valued member of the family has been working full-time, and alongside her Dad,for sixteen years. “I’m just going to let folks know, that we open every year in April, and close at Christmas.”

“This year, we’re concentrating on having folks do all of their ”farm-fresh"” shopping at Dreyer Farms. We feature the freshest, seasonal vegetables starting with asparagus and radishes, potatoes of every kind, Jersey Pop Corn, Jersey Peaches, Apricots, and Tomatoes in all shapes and sizes. And now we are launching our newest product: Tomasello Wines! Our customers are invited to sample all of our wines, and purchase exactly what they’d like. For more information, visit the website, Charles TomaselloWines.com."

Just remember, the perfect time to purchase “Fresh and Local” is right now! Know that you don’t have to “fill-up” a huge brown paper bag. Do what our Mother’s did. They visited the “greengrocer,” helped themselves to a few smaller-sized, paper bags, and, purchased just what they needed to prepare the family meal...YOUR meal. 

And they returned the next day for more fresh merchandise.

I guarantee you’ll be thrilled, and your family and friends will notice the difference. I particularly notice the difference when they close in December. I can’t wait until the following April. The snow melts, and Dreyer Farms Opens!

Remember too, that Dreyer Farms carries a wonderful selection of fresh plants which you are most welcome to use throughout your home, garden, or in a lovely vase on your dining room table.
