PLUMS

We still have some of the trees first planted 70 years ago on the property still producing top quality plums. There is a wide variety of plums available throughout the summer, including the popular greengages.

Our plums are great for eating, baking with, and preserving. They're also great to put in the freezer and bring out as you need them. If you would like any recipes on how best to use the plums that are ripe during the season.
