Description

Ours is a modified CSA program: less like a shareholder, and more like an old-fashioned door-to-door local business. YOu get on our mailing list; we'll send out a weekly produce listing, and after we've received your order we deliver: this way you can vary your order in quantity and variety from week to week. Let us know in advance what produce you will commit to purchasing so we knwo in advance what to plant.

We are a small family farm dedicated to producing delicious, naturally-grown vegetables and greens.

Our specialty is tomatoes, especially heirloom tomatoes, such as Cherokee Purple, Brandywine and Hillbilly. We also grow salad greens, cabbages, beets, garlic, potatoes, peppers, bush beans, cucumbers, zucchini, squash, kale and fresh herbs.

We grew our own food for years before we got around to becoming farmers; one reason we went "back to the land" was that we discovered that was almost the only way we could inexpensively eat the kind of food we enjoy. As food-lovers, we found that you can't cook gourmet food with anything other than the finest high-quality produce. Luckily, great produce doesn't have to be expensive or difficult to get: it can be found right in your own backyard! Or, if you haven't space in your backyard, or time to grow, it can be found at your local farmers' market.
