Pumpkins and Updated Fall Hours

Hi- We've decided to scale back our hours even more these days. We'll be open at the Farm Store
TUESDAY AND FRIDAY 12-5:30 and open for selling vegetables straight out of the field at 4758 Poplar Tent Rd SATURDAYS from 9-12.

We still have a few tomatoes, bell peppers, and eggplant coming in from our summer plantings. But these days, we've also got a great selection of Greens (all $2.00/lbs):
Swiss Chard
Mustard Greens
Red Kale
White Kale
Bok Choi ($4/head)
Tat Soi ($4/head)

We have some great salad greens as well (all $8.00/lbs)
Red lettuce
Green Oakleaf lettuce
Speckled lettuce

Our pumpkins, grown by my friend James Bullock, are oddly shapen and shiny, perfect for an elegant front door step, table centre piece or even a great pie.

If you're looking for a large quantity of any of these delicious vegetables, it's always a good idea to email or call before you stop by so we can make sure we have enough picked for you!

Mom's run off with my camera, so as soon as I get it back, I'll put some pics up of the greens and pumpkins.

Ideas for expansion- let's see if we can make any of these happen

I have a few ideas for how to make our farming operation even more awesome than it already is. Thing is, I can't do these things by myself. Well, some of them we can, but not all of them. That's where you, the community come in. I'm going to put these ideas out there (even if they seem a little wild). My hope is that someone will see them, realize their potential, and then we can work together to make the little projects happen.

1) Start a food truck!!

2) Move the old Pitts School to our property so we can have an indoor farms store!

3) Build some hoop houses so we can grow more veggies more of the year!

ok- so we can probably accomplish this last one on our own, I just wanted to let everyone know that we are looking into this and it will probably be a reality very soon!

If you or anyone you know is a house mover, a generous supporter of historic preservation, or a food truck manager looking to strike out on his or her own, please contact me at
