Growing Since 1998. Fresh from our farm to your table!
Over two acres of vegetables are grown seasonally at Rocky Glade Farm using natural and sustainable growing methods. In the spring you will find us working up the soil, adding natural fertilizers and compost to prepare the soil for the upcoming growing season. You will also find us at that same time harvesting crops of lettuce, kale, beets, carrots and other cold-tolerant crops out of our un-heated, passive-solar hoophouses. Utilizing both open ground and covered hoophouse ground, we are able to provide vegetables to our customers year round!
Our main growing season extends from April-November. During that time we produce a variety of hybrid and heirloom vegetables. Beginning with fresh spring lettuces, followed by tomatoes, green beans, squash, and cucumbers, we keep our garden ground continually producing by succession planting every two weeks.
Fall and winter are fun times for us right now as we continue to experiment with different crops to see if they can thrive and survive the winter weather in our un-heated hoophouses. So far, we have been amazed at just how hardy the plants really are! Some of our favorite winter offerings include a variety of lettuces, beets, kale, Chinese cabbage, tatsoi, arugula and many other cold loving crops!
