Fruits and vegetables

The widest variety, sustainably grown

If there is a fruit or vegetable that has a chance of thriving in our climate, we've tried growing it.  The farm specializes in diversity and grows close to 1000 different items in any given year.  Every year is a chance to try something new while always maintaining a balance with our environment.  The farm is certified sustainable upholding the highest standards for the product and the earth from which it grows.  For more information on our certification please contact Todd Nichols.
