Internship informationGeneral Farm Description: We are expanding! With the purchase of our new property in 2021 we are gearing up for an incredible 2023! With 20,000 more square feet in high tunnel production we are expanding our Winter green production, Summer green production, microgreen production and tomato production. We farm organically on 3 acres of land and grow over 100 varieties of vegetables for 2 Summer farmer's markets, 1 Winter Farmer's market and many wholesale accounts. We use intensive growing techniques to get the most out of our "market garden" including a wide range of small, efficient farm tools and techniques that we have perfected over the years. We specialize in season extension including high and low tunnels to grow Winter, early and late crops. We also focus on growing a lot of bagged greens and microgreens. We turn over our beds very rapidly and grow a lot of high quality produce on our small acreage.
