Farm Stand

We’re collaborating with a solid team of growers/producers to offer you delicious and healthy products. We’ve chosen these folks based on their quality and integrity and many have been ‘old friends’ for years.  Online ordering and curbside pickup info is linked here.

We grow 28 acres of Certified Organic Salads, Vegetables, and Flowers. We are widely known for pioneering Northeast-grown Ginger and Turmeric and for the Specialty Products we make with these powerful roots. We grow what we love, and love what we grow. We are committed to a healthy workplace, environment and community, and our products are infused with that attention. You’ll taste the difference!We do not have a farm stand, and instead encourage you to find our products at our farmers’ market, as well as farm stands such as the Atlas Farm Store, River Valley Coop, Greenfields Market, and many more (see listing below)
