One day recently I took a drive over to Antrim (NH) to get some photos around Gregg Lake. On the way home I had to stop at my favorite farm stand and see what they had to offer. I had my camera, so I decided to take some pictures while I shopped.
Tenney Farm is located on Rt. 202 (Main St. in Antrim) so you can’t miss it if you are driving through the area. When I lived in Antrim, I bought all my perennials there. In fact I still go there to replenish my yard each year as their plants always do well.
But Fall is possibly the best time to visit the farm. When I was there, the ice cream stand was still open, they still had corn for sale. And of course they had pumpkins and squash… lots and lots of squash.
I was in a bit of a hurry to get home so I didn’t buy as much as I should have – the peppers were so beautiful. All I can manage to grow is jalepenos, so I should have loaded up from the pepper display where I think they offered every kind imaginable. I didn’t even see the eggplant but I’ll get some when I return there this week.
What amazed me the most was the variety of pumpkins / squash. I bought an acorn, butternut and spaghetti squash and have eaten the acorn which was delicious. I don’t know the names of everything, but I did discover that the flattened pumpkins are called “Cinderella”.
I read on Tenney’s FaceBook page that their hours are changing for fall, and then they will eventually close for winter. I think they are open until around Thanksgiving, because they sell turkeys.
