Neighborhood Gardener-King Gardens

We grow a wide variety of vegetables, including heirlooms and specialty vegetables such as unusual Asian greens. We have berries and apples in season and lots of herbs and cut flowers. Our two farm gardens work together to stock our market stand and our CSA for reliable and wonderful harvests. We also make artisan breads, sweets, vinegars, and various preserves. We grow most of our vegetables in unheated high tunnels for clean, beautiful, and healthful produce. We do not use artificial fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides.

Listing last updated on May 17, 2013

Our high tunnels are real season extenders. This makes it possible to pick salad greens starting in April, and to actually ripen peppers this far north! We grow over 40 varieties of peppers, including many types of hot peppers. We also grow a big variety of flavorful heirloom tomatoes. Visit our market stand or enjoy the convenience and variety in a CSA subscription.

The review title is not just because I'm the first, but because this is the level of service these two farms provide. I try to stick with the "100 mile diet", and to be able to get this variety and quality of produce is unbelievable in our area.... [more]
