Bird Walk, Great Food at Sunday’s Farmers’ Market


 

 

Discover the fascinating and quite active bird habitat of the Dvoor Farm on a special walk at 8:30 a.m. this Sunday.

Then, after the walk, stock up on all your favorite local foods at our market. Or, if you’ve built up an appetite, grab yourself a flatbread pizza, pastry, burek or refreshing beverage.

Juanita Hummel, of the Washington Crossing Audubon Society, will lead this FREE hour-long bird walk. She’ll help you spot birds and other wildlife on the farm, treat you to a few bird calls, and discuss how the farm’s preservation has benefited our feathery friends.

On her last visit to the farm, Hummel spotted 32 different species of birds including a European Starling, Chipping Sparrow, Yellow-throated Vireo, Downy Woodpecker and a Carolina/Black-capped Chickadee. Perhaps the highlight of the excursion was the discovery of two brilliant orange Baltimore Oriole males singing their hearts out along the Walnut Brook.

This program is going to be great fun — don’t miss it!

Neil’s Sharpening Services returns to our market!

Neshanic Station Apiaries: To celebrate National Pollinator Week, Neshanic Station Apiaries will give out free packets of borage seed, no purchase necessary. Old timers used to plant the pretty, self-sowing herb near their bee yards because it produces so much nectar and pollen. The plant, also called Bee Bread, is the name of the mixture of fresh pollen and nectar the bees store inside the hive. And within two minutes of a bee harvesting nectar from a flower, the plant refills it! The flowers, leaves and stems are edible. With the disappearance of good forage, our pollinators need all the help they can get — so make sure to stop by Neshanic’s stand! 🐝

Sandbrook Meadow Farm  is introducing beets and cabbage to its delicious list of seasonal, organic vegetables. 

Will’s Amazing Vegan Burgers: Stock up on the best vegan burgers around! Chef Will and his amazing burgers are back this week!
