As the growing season starts, produce variety is limited. As the season continues variety and bounty increase, once again becoming limited towards the end of the season. This, of course, is due to our relatively short growing season.
We also try to grow specialty crops, and have been increasingly more interested in the heirloom varieties of crops such as potatoes, tomatoes and carrots.
Over the last few years we have been able to put up a number of hoop houses (greenhouses over the field, with crops growing directly in the soil) which will aide us in expanding our growing season, and allow us to control the crop’s climate a little better.
