If you’re looking for unusual produce selections in Roanoke, Virginia, you’re in for a treat with Halcyon Acres. Chemical-free crops for 2018 include hard-to-find-locally delights to excite your palate.
We’re still offering delivery to homes and businesses, but will be taking orders for specific items and quantities this year instead of our prior weekly pot-luck mix. Call (585) 554-4612 if you want early dibs on our limited quantities. No CSA fee, just a $10 deposit to secure your priority spot (which will be credited toward your first order).
Special featured items this year will include purple asparagus (the most tender you’ve ever tasted raw), strawberries, raw garlic and garlic scapes (short season in June and July), carrots, fresh peas, Adirondack Blue potatoes (they’re purple inside even after you cook them), spaghetti squash, tender lettuces, blackberries, elderberries, Chinese cabbage, turnips & beets (both with fresh greens), leeks, fresh herbs galore (a dozen varieties) and a host of other items that are hard to find locally as well as some heirloom varieties of more common treats too.
Keep an eye on the blog for updates on what’s in season. We’ll also be adding and constantly updating a price page in the coming weeks.
Want mail-order fresh herbs delivered monthly? We have an affordable alternative to the disappointing selection found in most supermarkets along with tips for preserving with each item we send.
For those with horses in the mix or on the horizon in the Roanoke area, we offer an affordable assessment service for existing challenging cases you own or a new purchase you’re considering at $150 plus mileage. Please consider reaching out before you buy a horse. Getting a qualified assessment from a knowledgeable and detached pair of eyes is so important when you don’t have a trusted trainer already in the mix. Prices for this service are affordable for even the tightest budgets (much less than it will cost you to feed and vet this critter for the first month). We can help you avoid the headaches that come when you make a heartfelt purchase without considering the costs of a bad fit. Sadly, calls come more frequently from those who already committed and are now confused about how to get the horse they purchased (or worse – saved) to do what they want to do. We can help here too.
