Beckners’ Produce is an open-air market selling local produce grown on our fourth-generation farm. (Our garden can be seen from the stand!) We start picking our greenhouse tomatoes and cucumbers in March, followed by strawberries, asparagus, and spring plants. Summer brings heirloom tomatoes, sweet corn, beans, peaches, squash, cukes, berries, and peppers. Fall is around the corner when you spot sweet potatoes, pumpkins, and apples. (All vegetables and fruits are non-GMO.) We also offer fresh baked goods from our kitchen. Come out to the farm!

My husband and I raise vegetables for sale on our farm.  Our stand is located on our dairy barn porch.  We pick everyday 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.
