We start rare varieties of tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, lettuces, as well as herbs in our greenhouse for your garden. Available at the farmers' markets during the month of May.
We grow many varieties of string beans including green, burgundy, yellow wax. We also produce tender flat beans such as the purple striped Dragon's tongue, and various types of drying beans for long term storage.
We grow at least 10 varieties of hot peppers each season with varying levels of heat. Barry is very familiar with the heat index of each pepper and can steer you in the right direction for a particular recipe you are trying.
Our bagged and bunched greens include kale, arugula, escarole, baby salad mix, mustards, tatsoi, and radicchio. Harvested the day before market, our greens are so fresh that our customers marvel at their super long shelf life--two weeks or more in your refrigerator crisper!
These are not your ordinary eggplants…. We grow five different varieties of heirloom eggplants that provide a colorful alternative to the traditional "black beauty". All are harvested when they are small, which means they are less seedy and not bitter; no need to salt them!
We grow both traditional English shelling peas for those diehard pea-lovers and the super-sweet and low-maintenance sugar snap peas. Some of our CSA customers have perfected the one-handed shelling technique and have eaten them all by the time they get home!
Although very tricky and labor intensive to grow organically, in recent years we have produced sweet corn. You might find the occasional bug in an ear or two…but the taste is amazing, and it's pesticide-free!! Just like Grandpa used to grow...
We grow a number of cucumber varieties, including the coveted yellow Boothby Blonde pickle-sized cucumbers that are a favorite with our farmers' market customers. You won't taste a sweeter cucumber, and their naturally thin skins make them nearly burpless.
Varieties of winter squash include red kuri, blue ballet, delicata, acorn, sugar dumpling, and butternut. Culinary pumpkins include New England long pie, Musque de Provence, and round pie.
Nothing beats the rich taste of a fresh shallot! We also grow yellow and red onions and offer them both as green, young onions and more mature storage onions.
Known for years as the "Potato Guy," Barry is renowned as the best local producer of a diverse array of potatoes, including All Blue (violet fleshed), All Red (pink fleshed), and Carola (yellow, buttery fleshed).
We grow a diverse array of colorful radishes, which are available in the spring and fall. Perfect eaten raw, sliced and served with melted butter, or roasted. Don't forget the greens! Radish greens are packed with vitamins and taste like broccoli rabe.
We graft our heirloom tomato seedlings with ultra-hardy root stock and grow them in high tunnels to provide you with gorgeous tomatoes that taste as delicious as they look!
We grow several varieties of lettuce, all harvested the day before market for absolute freshness. Many Philadelphia and NYC chefs say our lettuce is the finest on the East Coast.
We grow many varieties of summer squash and zucchini from early to late summer.
Don't be fooled by their fiery appearance! These Ark of Taste sweet Italian frying peppers are truly the sweetest red peppers you will ever taste! We promise! They are prized by many of our top chef clients in Philadelphia and NYC.
