Welcome to our Organic, "Heirloom" Farm,
Scroll Down Below ... for introduction pictures. We also have a new "like" feature button at the bottom of each album to let us know how we are doing... any suggestions, let us know.
For over 19 years our "Organic Heirloom micro Farm" has specialized in growing to date over 150 varieties of "rare" Heirloom Tomatoes... and counting. Each year we grow 25-40 new, as well as rotation varieties to continue our favorite heirloom lineages.
Our Heirloom Tomato seeds are generally between 70 to over 250 years old in lineage. Most of the tomatoes shown in our album above, have taken a minimum of 3 years to properly establish and adapt to our soil. As we grow from seeds from all over the world, they can take time to adjust to our own environments. Thus, we have noticed that after 3 plantings... an Heirloom from our own seed produces a robust plant with greater yields.
* In addition to our "rare" Heirloom Tomatoes... our farm grows from seed to table each year approx. 20 kinds of Organic Heirloom Vegetables with a selection under each kind, 20 varieties of Gourmet Garlic, 18 Herbs, 11 varieties of Mints/Teas and 17 varieties of Berries (9 are wild). Our goal is to grow organic crops and share with the community healthy, nutrient dense, delicious and flavorful produce. We are a non-certified organic micro farm.
