T.S Smith & Sons is an 800 acre family-owned farm located in Bridgeville, Delaware. On a recent road trip of mine I was more than pleased to stumble upon this farm. The packing house in bridgeville is the oldest in the state dating back to 1928 with vintage equipment that is still in use today! The packing house is also the main location for their farm market where you will find fresh fruits & veggies in a small room filled with jams, jellies, local honey & their famous apple butter, apple sauce & apple cinnamon donuts !!
I am a huge supporter of local farms in fact if I had it my way I would NEVER shop at a super market. Being raised in North Carolina community-supported agriculture was a way of life. Agriculture is the backbone to our economic system & the reasons to support your local farms are endless. Family farmers need our support. Buying directly gives them a better return for their produce not to mention most of the food found in grocery stores these days is highly processed & grown using pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, & genetic modification. Do your body a favor & nourish it with freshness many of our farmers go through great lengths to grow the most nutritious produce possible. The food you buy at the farmers market is seasonal always fresh & delicious & reflects the truest flavors.
Here are a few photos from my pit-stop at T.S Smith & SONS
Asparagus my personal favorite.
Quaint & Country
My Selection Road Trip Snacking at its best !!!! I don’t know what it was about those green bean chips but I am surprised they lasted longer than a day so so good.
Honestly these were Freshest & Juiciest Strawberries I’ve had in a long time. They were a real treat.
T.S Smith & Sons is home to many crops from their Apple Orchards to Peaches, Sweet Corn, Cantaloupe, Nectarines, Pumpkins, Watermelons, Kale, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Brussel Sprouts, Turnips, Asparagus, Sweet Cherries, & Collards. This is a real farm that produces real fresh top quality fruits & vegetables. I was more than impressed & grateful to have had the chance to visit this lovely establishment.
