Geiger Family Farm

Geiger Family Farm We are a 5th generation family run farm with a roadside vegetable market. Everything is grown here and picked by us. You can't get it any fresher.

During the winter months we continue to sell our own potatoes from our large storage building (big red building). We harvested in October and now will spend the winter months grading and bagging potatoes. We are open from 9:00AM till dusk. Keep potatoes handy during the winter months. A potato is second to an orange in vitamin C, second to a banana in potassium, and high in fiber with skins, and easy to store in the cooler months.

Operating as usual

We started to pick tomatoes, slowly ripening, limited quantity for now, first come first serve.
String beans no longer available, dried up due to lack of rain.

08/01/2022

We started picking yellow string beans and some candy onions. Also now selling pecks of peppers.
Thanking the Good Lord for what we have to pick even though we need rain.

The 7 Day Sweet Pickle recipe that I can and grew up with my Mom canning is from a Pennsylvania State Grange Cookbook. Some of the best recipes come from there. I am sharing a copy of the recipe page with you to enjoy as well. I use this cookbook so hard that it is falling apart.

07/21/2022

Some of you have asked for my Mom's refrigerator pickle recipe. Here it is:
Slice 4 quarts of pickles
cut up 1 onion
Mix 4 cups sugar, 4 cups vinegar, 4 tsp salt, 1 tsp tumeric until dissolved.
Add 1tsp celery seed, 1 tsp mustard seed, 1 tsp alum
Pour over the pickles. Stir for 5 days. Keep in the refrigerator. EAT!
Recipe from the kitchen of Priscilla Greiss.
FYI we never wait the entire 5 days.
Enjoy!

07/18/2022

Whoot Whoot! I started picking Pickling Cucumbers today! Time to start some refrigerator pickles and 7 Day Sweet Pickles! Selling in quart, 1/4 peck, and 1/2 peck containers.🥒 Nothing like a home canned sweet pickle on a grilled burger!

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all enjoying your summer.
I just opened the Roadside Farm Stand for the season. We have zucchini, peppers, and Virginia potatoes. Later in August we will have our own potatoes, tomatoes, egg plant, cucumbers, sweetcorn, string beans, and onions. Of course, this all depends on the weather (we need rain.). I will post as we start to pick the different vegetables.
Our hours remain Mon - Fri 9AM - 6PM, Saturday 9AM-2PM, Sunday CLOSED. We do reserve the right to change our hours for family time.

Hi Everyone! Not sure if you noticed, but it is getting a little cold outside. So we have moved our potato stand into the large red potato storage building. Just follow the driveway around the house until you see the door pictured below. It's not a pretty door but it will lead you to our Schnecksville grown potatoes to purchase. We have red, white, and gold potatoes. We continue selling from this building through May. So remember to buy your local potatoes here at the farm. We are open during daylight hours only. We here at the Geiger Family Farm hope you all have a Happy Holiday Season!

Hey Everyone! We finished our potato harvest last rainy Saturday, in the dark, by flashlight. We were determined to finish! Thank you to all our helpers for sticking it out with us this season and to our kids who have been a huge help during this harvest season.
We are blessed with a potato storage that is beyond full. You don't have to worry about our shelves being empty. No supply chain issues here on the farm.

We are excited to announce that we have Red and White varieties, and something new, Belmonda Golds.
Our Red varieties are good for boiling, mashing, roasting, and salads. As baked potatoes, they will be moist.
The White varieties are excellent all purpose potatoes for baking(not too dry, not too moist), frying/chipping, boiling, mashing, and salads.
The Gold Variety is an excellent frying/chipping potato, as well as tasty for roasted, boiled, baked, and mashed.

We have been taste testing the different varieties since we started hand picking in August. All of these varieties have good flavor. I use the white and gold for just about everything and the red for more boiling recipes and baking.
* Here is a hint: do NOT use different varieties together as they all have different temperatures to reach their desired cooking points.

We sell our potatoes all through the fall, winter, and spring. So keep our potatoes in mind for a local, affordable, healthy item to feed your family.
Thank you for supporting this farm family. We greatly appreciate you!

Hi Everyone, It has been a busy spring. Our roadside stand is now open. We hand dug some of our red potatoes for the stand. We will sell the potatoes from the roadside stand during July, August, September, October if our season proceeds as expected. Please check the hours, but remember, this is a family farm and we reserve the right to change our hours as needed. We work hard so we can play once in a while too.

We wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. The produce sales area has now been moved to the big red potato storage building for the winter months. Follow the signs and please come during daylight hours.

Ready to clean off the ole harvester and put it away til next picking season. 4 more loads to unload and the potato harvest of 2020 is complete. Thanking God for our Awesome Helpers, good crop, Tim's ability to keep the equipment running and the guys who help fix what we can't, and the descent weather (no long john's needed this year). It's the earliest I can ever remember being done potato harvesting. Now onto the soybeans and maybe more hay.

10/09/2020

What is left of our pumpkins is now on a pallet by the stand.

Recipe#3
I don't even have a name for these. But it is quick and easy.
Wash you potatoes. I leave the skins on (healthier), but you can peel them if you want.
Slice so you have 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch thick slices.
Lay them flat on a greased cookie sheet.
Melt butter, about a tbsp for each potato sliced.
Find something crunchy like frosted flakes, granola cereal, or crackers. (great way to use up the end of a cereal box that no one will finish). Put crunchy item in the melted butter.
Spoon the mixture onto the top of the potato slices. I sometimes will shake on some parm cheese also.
Bake or roast in oven at 425* for about 15 minutes or when you can put a fork in and potatoes are soft. I leave them in a little longer to make crispier.

Wish I knew what I was making tonight.......hmmm maybe just a good ole baked potato...

Potato Recipe #2
So yesterday I tried something new.
Peeled and shredded 6 potatoes, then rinse the starch off of the potatoes and drain.
In a bowl with the potatoes, mix in about 1/2 cup flour, 2 eggs, salt and pepper to taste, and 1/2 stick of butter. (my recipe for hash browns)
Spread the potato mixture in a black cast iron pan, smoosh to the bottom and up the sides.
Put in the oven for 15 minutes at 425 degrees.
While potatoes are baking, scramble 8 to 12 eggs.
Fry up a bunch of bacon.
When the potatoes are done, take out of the oven, top the potatoes with the scrambled eggs, smoosh them down.
Top with 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese.
Top with crumbled bacon.
Put in the oven for 15 more minutes at 425 degrees.
Was enough for 7 people.
Enjoy!

So many of you are coming to the farm to purchase potatoes, that`s great! We appreciate your support! It occured to me that maybe you all would like some potato recipe ideas. I will attempt to share some of my go to recipes every couple of days. Feel free to share any of your own potato recipes as well. Many of my recipies do not have specific measurements as I have a tendency to just through stuff together.
Recipe #1. Italian fried potatoes
Wash and Quarter potatoes (peeled or skins on)
Boil in water till soft ( fork can stab potato easily) I add about a tsp salt to water to decrease the amount of foamy boil.
Drain water, put potatoes in a fry pan.
Pour italian dressing over potatoes and fry. I usually start with about a quarter of the bottle and add as I see needed.
I like to experiment with different types of Italian dressings. So far the parmesan italian is my favorite, but I use what ever I have on hand.
It's a great way to get rid of old or end of bottle dressing.
Enjoy and stay well!

Thank you to everyone who supports our farm habit. Our road side stand is closed for the season; however, you can still purchase red or white potatoes here on the farm from the produce sales area now located in the large red building we use for potato storage. We ask that you come during daylight hours for safety reasons. We remain closed on Sundays. Again thank you for supporting family farms.

10/04/2019

Happy Fall! We want to thank you all for supporting our small roadside market this summer. We still have potatoes, peppers, and some cabbage. As our full time potato harvest begins, I just want to remind everyone that tractors with trailers and harvesters will be utilizing our driveway. Please be mindful and careful when when you pull into our driveway. We want to keep everyone safe. Thank You!

Well folks, We will try again this year. The potatoes are planted. The tomatoes, cukes, peppers, cabbage, onions, and zukes are planted. From what I hear, we are some of the lucky ones. So I am counting our blessings, and keeping the faith. Hopefully this year we will have produce. Meanwhile, say prayers for those who have been effected by the weather.

12/07/2018

IT"S SUNNY TODAY!
Just letting you all know, we were able to harvest a healthy supply of potatoes, both red and white. The potatoes are being sold out of the large red building with the large overhead garage door. There is a sign that says "Potatoes For Sale" beside the door to use. The shelves are directly inside the door. So don't forget to buy your potatoes for your holiday meals.
The Geiger Family thanks everyone who supports our farming habit and we wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2019!

HI Everyone!
It has been one weird summer and fall weather wise. We usually are done harvesting potatoes by the end of October; however, we have been trying to harvest the potatoes in between rains, as well as cut hay, combine soy beans, and plant winter grain. But folks, it is not that easy.Here it is November 8 and we are still not done. After it rains, we need to wait 2 days to get into the field without making a mess in the field....but then it rains again🤨. It was a slightly disappointing summer since we were not able to provide the variety of vegetables and fall decorations we normally grow. But we count our blessings, say a prayer of thanks to God, and try again next year.

The good news is that we do have potatoes to sell for your holiday meals and throughout the winter months. We will soon be moving the produce up to the big red potato storage building. When we do, just follow the signs.
The Geiger Family hopes you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! 🦃

The stand is now open with limited quantities of peppers, onions, tomatoes, and potatoes.

Hi All, The late spring really delayed our garden; but,
the tomatoes are tied up, the peppers are w**ded, the garden is starting to look like a garden instead of a w**d patch. We hope to open the road side stand the last week of July or the first week of August depending on the vegetable being ready. Till then, we still are selling potatoes from the red storage building. Stay cool!

05/27/2018

Hi Everyone,
We made it through the winter and we are currently trying to figure out exactly what season this is. The crazy weather is keeping us guessing when to plant and when to grade potatoes. Today we plant! As I type, Tim, Jonas, Hannah, and Olivia are planting tomatoes, peppers, and more. It's a holiday weekend and this is what farm families do (even if they do have a professional life). Hope you all have a fun and safe Memorial️🇺🇸️ Day Weekend, But please don't forget the reason for Memorial Day, and say a prayer of thankfulness for all those brave souls who gave their lives that we may live "FREE".

11/13/2017

Hi Everyone, Thank you to all the people who visited our road side stand this summer and fall and supported our farming habit. We still have long neck pumpkins (for your Holiday pumpkin pies), cabbage (creamed or pickled cabbage is always a tasty addition to the meal), butternut squash (great roasted or even candied like yams), and of course, red and white potatoes (Potato filling!). Getting hungry for those holiday meals already!
We will soon be moving the produce up to the big red potato storage building. When we do, just follow the signs.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

10/14/2017

We are now picking broccoli, small heads of cauliflower, and small heads of cabbage. (I apologize to the nice people who came this morning and I told them next week for cabbage.) Full time potato picking is happening this month when the weather cooperates. And, we have beautiful large pumpkins. Prices per the pumpkin, NOT by the pound. We price by looking at the color, stem, stand, size, and shape. Our prices are $7.00 and less. Enjoy your day!
