Spring has sprung in the gardens at Griggstown. Our greenhouse is filled to the brim with broccoli, cabbage, scallions, and flowers eagerly awaiting transplant to the field. Big plans are in store for the Griggstown Farm Market this summer as efforts are underway to transform the acre and a half around our market into a flower and herb garden filled with pick-your-own delicacies. Stay tuned for updates as they unfold, or better yet, stop by and keep tabs on the transformation first-hand!

Feature of the Week: Griggstown Quail & Pheasant Eggs
Quail eggs are considered a delicacy. They are sometimes used raw in sushi and often found in Japanese Bento lunches. In Colombia, quail eggs are less exotic than in many other countries, and a single hard-boiled quail egg is a common topping on hot dogs and hamburgers, often fixed into place with a toothpick. In the Philippines, kwek-kwek is a popular street food delicacy, which consists of soft-boiled quail eggs dipped in orange-colored batter before being skewered and deep-fried.
Griggstown Quail Farm supplies quail and pheasant eggs to a number of local restaurants and merchants. The versatile uses of both allow any chef to add a touch of something special to any dish served.
