I friend had recommended Stuart’s Farm as a great place to get plants. We’d had a stretch of bad weather, which suddenly turned better so on a glorious, sunny day off we went.
According to its website:
Stuart’s Fruit Farm is a family-operated farm since 1828 located in Westchester County, New York. It is about an hour away from New York City. The farm began as cattle farm and evolved to an agricultural farm.
Depending on your seasonal needs; visit us in the spring to buy a varied selection of flowers and vegetable plants, the autumn for apple picking, peach picking and visiting the pumpkin patch, and in the winter for Christmas trees.
Visiting Stuart’s Fruit Farm in the autumn is an exceptional time of the year. Aside from the perfect apple picking with an array of apples take a hayride around the orchard and visit the farm stand to buy fresh produce and the bakery for delicious apple cider donuts and homemade pies baked daily. Finally, before heading home have a picnic with your family to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage.
It is, indeed, a lovely place – old weathered gas pumps; the inevitable red barn; lots of brightly colored tractors; and of course the vegetables and flowers (some of which we took home).
Unfortunately, the bakery was not open, which was a pity as I was a bit ‘peckish’.
