Juicy Gems can be Found at Paquette Farm in Shrewsbury MA

Juicy Gems can be Found at Paquette Farm in Shrewsbury MA

The New England harvest shines this time of year. The fresh produce is abundant. 

 

I recently stopped into Paquette Farm stand in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, having been drawn in by their sign advertising peaches and green beans at very appealing prices. As I entered the building, I was struck by the appearance of the produce. Everything looked fresh, and the woman running the stand told me that they sort through their product and remove items that are bruised or otherwise imperfect. Any surplus is donated to the Worcester County Food Bank.

Along with the rainbow of green beans, yellow and red tomatoes, purple eggplant, and multi-colored squash, I discovered a tempting assortment of baked goods. The cooler of pies was the standout, though. Apparently, New England's own Pie Guy makes all of these tempting treats and delivers them to Paquette's nice and fresh.

Paquette Farm also takes holiday pie orders, and I understand that it is best to order early if you wish to obtain one of their pies for Thanksgiving.

In addition to produce and delicious baked goods, Paquette Farm conveniently offers a deli service with soup, salads, and Boar's Head meats, and their deli counter was crowded with customers who had stopped in to pick up lunch.

The peaches that I brought home were at exact ripeness. Sweet and juicy, I savored every one of them. The beans were firm, snappy, and brilliant in their color. I so look forward to enjoying more of the fall harvest offered by Paquette Farm of Shrewsbury.

Hi Kathryn

Ah, this takes me back to our many years in the Boston area. I always loved the end of summer and start of fall - apple season was such a highlight.  Shrewsbury residents will no doubt appreciate hearing about Paquette Farms if they are not already in the know.

Paquette Farm is indeed a hustle-bustle place, Jeff.

I am a big fan of peaches that goes back to my mother's love of them.

Joe, nothing quite matches the moments in which we savor a sweet, juicy peach.

This is great information to share with area residents.

I need to blog about pumpkin recipes for the season.
