Preparing pickled cucumbers in the kitchenIt’s Pickling season folks and we have a number of great varieties of pickling cucumbers (as well as slicing cukes) fresh picked and crisp as can be.

Come to the market this Saturday or send me an email on the contact page.

I will be in Erlanger/Florence today with a bushel full and will gladly meet you.

By the way, if you are new to pickling, stop by the market Saturday and I can walk you through the wonderful world of pickles!

market from road 640We are getting a lot of visitors from all over the region. Look for us on the road and be sure to come visit!

menu board 2 copyCome enjoy the smoky goodness of our delicious pulled pork, cooked the “backwoods way” at the Upper Texas Smokehouse.  Get it as a basket with homemade beans, Carolina style slaw, spicy pickles and my own barbecue sauce.

Or get a charcoal grilled, hand pattied, fresh ground burger, a chicken salad wrap or a Gi-normous hot dog.

Cool down with a variety of special soft drinks including Sarsaparilla, Root Beer, Orange and Cream Soda or one of our varieties of bottle Teas.

As they say, you could always get whatever you wanted in Upper Texas!

This week more produce will be coming in from other farmers and we expect there will be field ripened tomatoes any day now.
