Ramp it up

We have local ramps!

Just in, we have local wild harvested ramps for some of our farmer friends.

What are ramps?

Ramps are kind of like wild leeks, but taste more like a cross between garlic and an onion.

Why are ramps special?

Ramps are native to the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, and are super-scarce. The wild plants grow very slowly, taking up to four years to flower and reproduce. You can’t walk into a grocery store and pick up a bunch. Ramps are in season for only a few weeks in the spring and are very limited in supply.

Because they are so sought after, we recommend coming in quickly to get yours. Or give us a call, and we can set some aside for you. 540-724-1650.
