Field Trip: Soergel's Orchard

There is something about this cold weather we are having that makes me want to visit a farm stand. In that spirit I am revisiting a trip taken when the summer weather was still here and in full swing. September 5th to be precise.

We visited Soergels specifically for their annual corn roast. Hence the beautiful first picture of this post.

Pictured below is the unique corn roasting machine that looks rustic and innovative at the same time. It appeared to have been constructed from other machinery to form this hybrid machine just perfect for roasting corn. I wonder if its good for roasting anything else.

An added perk to going to the agricultural wonderland known as Soergels is their store "Naturally Soergel's". As if it wasn't enough to have a beautiful farmhouse market stocked to the brim with an exquisite variety of vegetables and fruits Soergel's also has a mini-shop that features loads of allergen free food including gluten free and dairy free.

They sell my favorite Edward and Sons Mushroom gravy mix that i discovered in Hawaii, which is probably part of the reason i developed such an affinity, but i digress.

On this particular visit I discovered these lovely little things called "hummus chips" boy were they yummy, but you can read more about them when I review them. I also purchased some rediculously reasonably priced sundried tomatoes and of course gravy mix.

You should visit and when you do don't miss the Market, Garden Center, Gift Barn, and especially Naturally Soergel's.
