We have been in the conventional truck farming business since about 1920. The farm started with my great grandfather, so I am the 4th generation to continue the farming tradition in our family. In my grandfathers day we farmed around 150 acres or so. We had as primary crops, Onion sets, Potatoes and Cabbage. We also raised barley as a rotation crop. Only 40 acres remain on the original farm. We are in transition on this acreage to become certified to Organic. We are raising a wide variety of vegetables. Some of which include Onions, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Garlic, Tomatoes, Peppers, Squash, Sweet Corn, Cabbage, Melons, Cucumbers,Bush Beans, Asparagus and Rotation in Oats. We also have started a vineyard with 3 Grape varities. The vineyard will take 2 more years to be planted completely. The vinyard will take up about 1.5 acres. Out of the 40 acres approximately 35 acres are tillable. I also use 8 acres of neighboring property which has been in pasture land for many years.
