Vegetables
Broccoli
Broccoli

Broccoli is one of those few vegetables that everyone in American knows of.  So if you are visiting a farmers market for the first time, and you don’t want to go home empty handed, you are going to look right past the parsnips and the dinosaur kale and buy some Broccoli.  And that’s why we’re here, to grow your Broccoli.  It is a cool weather crop so we plant it as early as we can, in the spring, then again 2 and 4 weeks later.  As with most crops, we usually plant 3 different varieties. This helps us absorb extremes in the weather.  Depending on temperature and rain, some varieties will thrive and some will struggle.  Late summer we do it all again for our late season crop.

Imperial

High quality, tight dome-shaped heads with small dark green beads. Excellent post-harvest holding ability.

Carrot
Bolero

Uniform, 6-8 inch long, slightly tapered root is sweet and crunchy, prime qualities for snacking. A bright orange Nantes variety, Bolero grows to 1 1/2 inches across and is adorned with a 10 inch tall, dark green top. Maintains its sweet flavor even after long term storage.

Mokum

The finest fresh-eating carrot that is crisp and delicate. This deep orange carrot is tasty as a baby carrot or as 6-8in full size. Rich in Vit A and high sugar content makes this a sweet treat. If you appreciate fresh carrots, you must try this one!

Garlic
MUSIC GARLIC
  • Music Garlic
Green Beans
Provider

Favorite variety of many market growers. Big and bushy. Firm, medium-thickness, medium-length green beans that really satisfy. Steam, pan-fry, or process.

Kale
Winterbor

Heavily ruffled dark green curled kale - sweet and flavorful.

Swiss Chard
Swiss Chard

When you can’t find locally grown Spinach please consider it’s close cousin, Swiss Chard.  Chard can be grown when the days get longer and warmer and Spinach wants to make seeds rather than leaves.   Yea Chard is a bit more bitter tasting, but just about every leaf is in the summer.  So I recommend you focus on the abundant leaves and crunchy stems when you enjoy this nutritious green.  We grow about a half a different varieties, each featuring red, yellow, orange, magenta or green stems and leaves.

Tomato, Cherry
Snow White Cherry

The snow white cherry tomato has a sweet, fruity flavor with a real tomatoey aftertaste. Pale yellow to ivory 1 ounce fruits makes them a striking color addition to cherry tomato mixes and salads.

Winter Squash
Carnival

Carnival

Multicolored sweet dumpling, good for stuffing.
