Visit to Frecon Farms

… The other Sunday, George & I went to Frecon Farms.

They have been around since 1944 providing Boyertown & other locals with the freshest ingredients from fruit, to veggies, + meat. If they aren’t providing it they get it from another local place just to make sure you are happy.  They also work with bakers in the area to bake with their fresh fruit into pies & deliver to restaurants. Our friends Amy & Rich had suggested this small market since they knew it would be up our alley. It sure was!

We we’re greeted by a friendly face, Roswell who showed us the way in, talking about the farms history & some of the local things that were native to their town. We browsed the cute market where fruit was displayed, granola galore & every tea you could think of and a backroom with local wines from Berks County, Pennsylvania.

We also we’re educated on some of the local wine they sell. From sweet wines, fruit & honey and good old Cabernet.

We left with blair, “three sisters” which is the ultimate wine. A blend of Pinot Noir,  Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. Like the three sisters, each has a different  personality, and adds its distinctive flavor to this great blend. Was too cute to pass up, reminds me of my sisters! ❤

We are definitely going back once a season, especially for the meats or wild salmon they bring in. It’s a good step in the right direction to eat more locally and to know where food is coming from while supporting the small businesses!
If you’re in the Berks county area, check it out! OR find out where your nearest market could be 🙂

 .. thanks frecon farms for all the knowledge & goodies! ❤
