New Update for 2010 growing season: 2009 was a big year for farmer Tom, because it was the first year that we offered Local Fresh Vegetable Boxes. Due to the high demand for fresh local vegetables this growing season farmer Scott is taking over of the entire farm production. Scott's Vegetables farm is located on the same premises as Tom's Acres last season which is in the rural part of Hampshire, Illinois. For the 2010 growing season vegetables along with other farm goodies will be offered in two ways. First, you will get a chance to purchase fresh vegetables directly from farmer Scott at the farm stand in Hoffman Estates when the stand opens, we won't be offering vegetable boxes at the farm stand this year. If the weather cooperates the farm stand can open as early as mid July, e-mail update will be sent once it's official. Directions to the farm stand can be found by visiting TomsAcres.com. Second, there is a possibility that you will be able to come to the farm in Hampshire and purchase a vegetable box from farmer Scott. The dates and time, along with the vegetable box contents will be e-mailed to you once we have sufficient harvest. To find out how the vegetable boxes work just follow the link at the bottom of this page. This is a great opportunity for your family to enjoy farm fresh food with the season. What a great way to connect and support your local farmer.
Also, make sure to take a look at the photo gallery on TomsAcres.com, it has been updated with more 2009 photos and new 2010!
