McQuesten Farm in Litchfield is not your typical farm stand. They do have a good sized stand with great produce available all summer. A good place to make your corn and tomato run during the height of the season. This farm has taken the “pick your own” motive to the extreme. You can from 09:00 am to 2:00 pm pick your own beans, beats, tomatoes, peppers, squash and other vegetables. When arriving at the farm you go into the farm stand and exchange your driving license for a good sized bag that you then fill with your hand picked produce from out in the fields. When finished they will inspect your car to make sure you are not over picking and return your license. One bag costs $15.00.
The farm stand itself has the usual array of fresh vegetables. Corn and some other items are not pick your own available but can be purchased here.
The farm has an enclosure where the little ones can feed some ducks and goats.
If you are ready head off into the fields for some picking. First here are a few rules:
There seems to be a lot of people going after shell beans?
We stuck to the more traditional vegetables.
It is a shame the amount of waste that you see in the fields.
This is our haul for one $15 half bushel bag.
