Something exciting is happening! For many years, we have believed that a diet of local food is healthier, better for our local economy, and leaves a lighter carbon footprint. Now, you are realizing it too! We are pleased with your questions about how our food is grown and how it is treated after harvest. The “eat local” trend is continuing to grow and the larger nationwide movement is growing, too! We thank you for supporting our farm and our community. Part of supporting a local farm is understanding that there are seasons of availability when it comes to produce. Tomatoes and summer squash are just not available in April!
Our planting season starts in our greenhouse and hoop houses in January, and we begin our season with cool weather crops like leafy greens (and there are lots of very nutritious varieties of those including many types of lettuce), radishes, peas, and many herbs. As the season progresses, more produce is available. Early summer brings more lettuces, beans, cucumbers, greens, onions, carrots, and the like. As we shift into the dog days of summer, red-ripe tomatoes and peppers make their grand appearance on our farm and on your plate! We finish out the growing season with an extensive selection of winter squash and pumpkins, including many types for cooking/baking and carving. Please notice the list to the right side of this page.
