We are taking a break from vegetable production for a few seasons.
This is a big change for us, as we have been growing veggies for sale continuously since 2001. This break is intended to be temporary – we have left some of our vegetable information on this site to give you a more complete picture of how we farm – and we hope to be back in the vegetable fields in the next year or two! In the meantime, we will be focusing our efforts on making fabulous yogurt and caring for our cows.
Back in 2001...
when Sidehill Farm was still a homestead and oversized garden, our main crops were the ones we most wanted to eat: juicy, colorful heirloom tomatoes, and fresh, interesting salad greens. Today, in order to provide healthy food to our local community for as much of the year as possible, we grow more than 30 different vegetable varieties on 3 acres of cropland and in over 5000 square feet of greenhouses. Harvest day is a treat for both the taste buds and the eyes – purple, yellow, and orange carrots, baby bok choy, tender lettuces in all shades of green and red, plump purple eggplants, bunches of glistening beets. But for all the variety, we are still known for the quality of our early greenhouse tomatoes, summer heirloom tomatoes, and nearly year-round salad greens.
