Wildflower Eco Farm, located in the sandy, rolling hills of Bath Twp., specializes in growing and marketing of over 60 types of veggies and fruits. We grow mostly open-pollinated and heirloom varieties and a few of the best tasting hybrids. Ours is a small farm with much diversity. This is our eleventh year of farming for market, using only natural inputs and practices such as composts and crop rotations.
Our cultural practices are consistent with organic production (not certified) with more of an emphasis on maintaining ecological diversity and health, and marketing locally. We market through local farmers markets, grocery stores, restaurants and by CSA subscription. Our growing season is year-round although cool season veggie crops are typically left semi-dormant three months out of the year.
This spring we will begin sales of veggie seedlings and many greens, radishes, rhubarb etc., (see veg. listings below). We extend the seasons both earlier and later using hoophouses. This also results in more diversity of veggies at those times.
Wildflower Eco-Farm is a vegetable and fruit farm and is named for the diversity of wildflowers that bloom year-round throughout the gardens. Our farm is bordered by meadows and forest. Soils are Sandy loams. The farm work is done by family members Phil and Calen Throop and a wide net of friends/volunteers/hired workers/eaters and the food is consumed by our savvy friends, family and customers. We thank you for the privilege of being able to do what we do!
