Our focus is on heirloom and open-pollinated varieties and local seed sources. We never use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides in our
growing practices. Our goal is to provide a diverse mix of seasonal vegetables from week-to-week, including many familiar vegetables and some less
familiar, specialty varieties.
Below is a library of the vegetables we grow. Some variation from this is guaranteed due to seed availability, growing conditions, farmer interest and customer demand. Take a look:
Asparagus: Argenteuil (Asparagus offcinalis)
A French heirloom that produces very large, thick spears earlier in spring than most varieties. The very tender spears are sweet tasting with a round tip with short purplish scales, but it is the ultimate variety used for blanching to produce white asparagus.
Asparagus: Jersey Knight (Asparagus offcinalis)
A variety that grows predominantly male plants. Produces enormous yields of fine-flavoured, bright green spears with large stalks.
Asparagus: Sweet Purple (Asparagus offcinalis)
With a 20% higher sugar content than the green asparagus, this purple asparagus has a wonderful mild nutty flavour when cooked.
