CORN & PEACHES & PLUMS OH MY....AT CROTON COUNTRY GARDENS OF COURSE

Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton -- our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools -- in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

If you haven't heard yet, Cookie's locally famous sweet corn has arrived...

You can read and see more about that here, courtesy of Croton United's FB page http://bit.ly/2uYOnRs

Today the peaches (click on the photo), nectarines and sweet yellow plums arrived--all locally sourced....and beautiful Jersey Beefsteak tomatoes too....it all goes very fast....and with good reason.

For those who don't know, this is also Cookie's last season. After well over five decades in the nursery business both in the Bronx and here in Croton, Cookie is retiring. "I've been doing this since I was a kid", Cookie said. "I love it and of course I'll miss my loyal customers, but I'm also looking forward to having more time with friends and family".

We wish Cookie the best of luck in his well-deserved retirement. In the meantime, get that corn and more while you can....

CROTON COUNTRY GARDENS, 1360 ALBANY POST ROAD 271-5129

  2. Always look forward to the first spring visits with Cookie, as well as the year end search for the perfect Christmas Tree. You will be missed. Good luck, and enjoy!
