Harrison Market Gardens is proud to offer shares, both U-Pick and CSA, in our farm gardens. With the cooperation of mother nature, drip irrigation, and 2 hoop houses, we offer a wide variety of products on an ongoing basis. Your farmers use organic methods to grow a wide variety of herbs, vegetables, and small fruits. We will be starting seeds, transplanting, and weeding, and your family helps with the harvest.
Your shares will vary with your family's tastes as well as seasonal variablity. U-pick shares are available either weekly or biweekly. You will have selections from both heirloom and traditional varieties, with several varieties and succession plantings of all crop types. We strive to have a wide selection of crops available from mid-May through October. We start with asparagus, lettuce, peas,onions, spinach, and chard and finish with the squashes and root crops. Many weeks include BONUSes during seasonal flushes.
Sign up begins now for the 2014 U-Pick season.

The garden is a short drive from Rockford (maybe 10-15 minutes from NW Rockford) and has a great variety of vegetables. There are some fruits as well, mostly berries.... [more]
This is the first year I've ever joined a CSA. So far, I love it. I made a ton of strawberry jam in June. Each week I pick great veggies.
Yeah, there are bugs and it takes time to pick.... [more]

I highly recommend Harrison Market Gardens for a wide variety of fresh produce and berries. We enjoyed our summer of picking in a peaceful setting.
Because we did the picking, we came home with the produce we liked.... [more]
