Tomatoes are one of the most innovative and successful crops on our farm, while requiring long hours of preparation, care-taking, and monitoring. Despite the continuous time and labor devoted to their successful growth, the end result - a flavorful, juicy tomato - is unsurpassable. Take a look at some highlights from the production!
We seeded our first crop of tomatoes on January 22nd right in our kitchen! It is critical that we seed the tomatoes ourselves so that we can ensure that they receive the proper care to grow into healthy plants that produce delicious fruit. It is also important that we seed them during the last couple weeks of January so that the plants are ready to be planted in the ground in early April in our outdoor tomato tunnel system. This allows us to produce ripe fruit by the beginning of June, giving our customers the most local fruit so early in the growing season. We take great pride in providing local, farm fresh produce for our customers that tastes like a real tomato!
