My husband and I raise vegetables for sale on our farm.  Our stand is located on our dairy barn porch.  We pick every day and aim to keep a fresh selection of produce on hand.  We only sell what we raise.  Most of our emphasis is on tomatoes. We plant heirloom and backyard types since we feel these types produce the best flavor.  (That’s what our customers tell us!)

Open Seasonally, May – October, all day, 7 days a week.
