This year we are using even more open-pollinated and heirloom varieties in hopes of keeping the genetic diversity of delicious vegetables alive. We want to bring you the best regionally adapted varieties that perform well in our area, and exquisite taste to your palate! I can’t even name all of the varieties here but I’ll try to name a few. Corno di Toro Italian Frying Pepper, Rosa Bianca Eggplant, Deer Tongue Lettuce, Cherokee Purple Tomatoes, Kennebec and German Butterball Potatoes, New England Pie and Long Island Cheese Pumpkins, and Turnips from the seeds grown year after year by our wonderful New City neighbor Eugene. Altogether we are growing around fifty different crops, with over 150 varieties total!
