On opening day there was an assortment of pullets available, which include; Amberlink, Americana, Barred Rock, Black Australop, Buff Orpington, and Rhode Island Red. First come first serve for chicks with new hatchlings arrive weekly.

A variety of assorted ducklings will be ready to go soon but the Pilgrim geese are still sitting on their eggs and hatching time looks to be about two weeks out.

Long time customer and area resident Betty Long said, “ I’ve been going to Frog Pond for years and every year is just as thrilling as the previous. I like that the farm is local and there are so many fresh items to purchase. My truck is full when I leave the parking lot.”

Social Media post from Jeanna G visiting from Paramus, NJ said, “I really, really, really love coming to the Frog Pond Farms. This place is like a little slice of heaven for anyone that enjoys a good farmers market filled with fresh produce and plants.

“My brother finally took me here after years of telling me about how cool this place was and I couldn't agree more. We started off with some fresh donuts from the little cart and boy were those delish. I ordered a glazed and my friend got the sugared and we split, so we got the best of both worlds,” Jeanna added. “I love me a good petting zoo as well and the Frog Pond was checking all the boxes on my list. There were goats, ducks, chickens, a baby cow and some really large pigs and they all looked really happy and healthy.”

Jeanna also said the produce section had such amazingly fresh fruits and veggies everywhere and at really good prices and she ended up with some fresh apples to make a crisp, an acorn squash for her friend because she loves them, delicious cheese curds and a whole bunch of other fruits and veggies. The plant section is so reasonably priced too so she purchased a beautiful plant of sunflowers for only $5.

She added,“The Frog Pond is a spot that you easily can spend the afternoon and not even realize you have been there that long. There is just so much to do and look at and explore. I like that they have a huge section filled with cracked corn for kids to play around in and keep busy.”
