It’s been a long hard year and it’s almost time to start again but we are up for the challenge. We want to Thank each and everyone of you for making this such a successful year for us !  We have had the opportunity to meet new friends and farmers along the way. Plans are already started for the 2016 season as well. Seeds are ordered, we are adding another High tunnel greenhouse this winter along with some upgrades to the packing room. Another walk in cooler should be ready by early spring.

Our 2016 Country Basket program will get a new look this year also. You folks have told us what you wanted and we have listened. Without you this would not be possible. Our Basket Program information will come out the first of January with the first two weeks being offered to last years customers. After that it will be opened up to the rest of the community with more slots available this coming year.

Remember we grow the Old Fashion way like our grandparents did, bringing you the freshest veggies possible. Planted, picked, washed, packed and delivered by us.
