Our Veggies

How many varieties? Spread out over our ten acres of produce you'll find 140+ different vegetable varieties from 45 some odd crops. So why so many varieties? First, as CSA farmers it is essential to give our members lots of variety to keep it exciting. It also keeps it fresh for us; it gets really boring to harvest the same few things over and over again. Instead of just two or three kinds of tomatoes you will get nine different kinds of tomatoes throughout the season. Some will be hybrids and some will be heirlooms, there will be slicers, beefsteaks, plums and cherries. A diversity of varieties not only keeps things interesting but also helps protect us against crop failure; if certain varieties fail others should pull through. This is the philosophy we hold for all of our major crop groups. We also have an aesthetic connection to the multitude of flavors, smells, sizes, shapes and colors provides to our fields and stands.
