Hinton’s Holiday Shoppe is Expanding to the Fall Season!

Hinton’s Orchard is excited to share some great news!  As many of you know, the last two years, Hinton’s Holiday Shoppe has been open in Elizabethtown at Three Springs Farm for the Christmas season.  This year, we’re expanding that season to include the fall!  Next Tuesday, September 1st, you’ll be able to find the mums and garden needs you’ve come to expect from Three Springs plus your fall favorites from Hinton’s Orchard like apples, apple butter, and more.  Pumpkins and all of our fall decorations will be following very soon.  We’re really excited about the opportunity to be more convenient for our Hardin County customers and hope you’ll come and shop with us there.  Of course, when you want to take a hayride, you will still have to come to the farm.  But when you run out of peanut butter or apples, you can just run down the street to pick some up!  More details will be coming soon!

Everything You Need for Summer!

The market at Hinton’s Orchard is bursting at the seams with fresh, delicious produce!  If you want it for a summer cookout or just a weeknight meal, chances are you can find it fresh picked.  Choose from a large selection of Hinton’s own sweet corn, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, zucchini, green beans, eggplant, broccoli, cabbage, peppers, and more!  On the fruit side, we have yummy “June” apples great for cooking, blueberries, and the beginning of the blackberry crop.  Watermelons and cantaloupes are also available.  This is a little different peach season, because all of our 2015 peaches were frozen by subzero weather in February.  However, Southern peaches will be for sale in the market throughout July and August.
