Greetings friends!
Happy Autumn. We hope you have been enjoying the cooler morning and evening temperatures.
There are plenty of green beans to freeze, pickle or can. Come help yourself to as many green beans as you can pick. Come at your convenience. The farm is located it 4350 Levis Lane Godfrey IL 62035. The green beans are located inside the gate of the You-Pick field. (the gate is near the back of the greenhouse) Look for the sign that says beans near the little garden shed.
