Pelham farm stand takes a fresh approach

New farm stand is a hit in Pelham

“I love it here. I really do,” Carver said. “You know you are going to get fresh produce that hasn’t been on a truck for two days.”

Carver said prices are comparable to the grocery stores. Corn was selling for $6 a dozen.

“But you know you are going to get fresh produce here,” she said.

The place opens by 8 a.m. and stays open until 6 p.m.

Third-generation farmer John Grzesik, 73, is operating the farmstand in association with Franklin and Frederick Nietupski, owners of farm land on Mammoth Road.

Dougherty said Grzesik often is first to the farmstand.

The farmstand staff recommends customers arrive early for the best selection of produce.

This isn’t one of those stuffy farmstands.

“We let our customers do whatever they want: pick ‘em up, feel,” Campbell said.

They even will spare you the mess at home.

“I allow them to shuck their corn,” she said.

The farmstand has more season to go. Plans call for staying open through October.

Bottomline, business has been very good this summer.

“We’ve been busy every day since we’ve been here,” Campbell said.
