1. Beach Plum Farm

According to Beach Plum Farm, fall is the best time of the year. Look for pumpkins, apples, sun-kissed peppers, zucchini, all manner of squash, leeks, scallions, lettuce, and fresh herbs like fresh basil, thyme, mint, and oregano. Thin-skinned new potatoes are in.  Roast them with their pasture-raised poultry for a winner, winner, chicken dinner! At the Beach Plum Farm, they truly believe eating locally grown produce makes for tastier food for their guest and happier visitors at all of their properties at Cape Resorts Group.
