We also have a wide selection of winter squash. These are not only great decorations but they will also keep well for your Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

Garden Produce
Beginning in mid to late summer, we kick off our season with scrumptious sweet corn. We take special care to make sure we isolate the sweet corn from all other types of corn to prevent cross pollination. By doing this, we assure a super sweet and tender delight. In addition, we produce hybrid and heirloom tomatoes to assure the richest and most robust flavor possible.

These will be vine ripened to assure the best possible flavor. These will be available as the season allows. Don’t forget about the green peppers, cucumbers and home grown potatoes. You’ll notice a huge improvement in the flavor of our home grown produce over the supermarket produce.
