Frequently Asked Questions
What types of meat do you have for purchase?
We offer chickens, beef, pork, lamb and Thanksgiving turkeys! Orders for these items can be placed in advanced seasonally.
What are heirloom varieties?
Many of the crop varieties that we grow are known as heirloom varieties.
Heirloom varieties are not hybrids, and their seed can be saved from year to year to produce the same plant each time. Hybrid seeds are special crosses developed for certain traits and cannot reproduce themselves.
We grow heirloom vegetables for their excellent flavor. The hybrids have been developed to capitalize on certain traits such as resistance to certain diseases, fruit uniformity, or longer storage capabilities. Unfortunately, with this selection, sacrifices in flavor are often made. Because we don’t have to worry about many of the problems that hybrids address, we can use the better-flavored heirlooms instead.
We are not exaggerating when we say that you can really taste the difference! Some of our members have even said that they have not tasted a tomato like ours since they were kids picking veggies in their Grandparent’s garden!
