Long Entry Farm

From our family's farm to your family's table

What's Growin'


Long Entry Farm is continuously striving to grow – both literately and figuratively. We grow over 50 varieties of tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, squash, cucumbers, herbs, and anything else we think will:
a) grow well in our soil
b) sell well at our farmer's market, and
c) (MOST IMPORTANTLY) taste yummy on our dinner table, and yours. 


 


What's growing now???
 

We've ordered our seeds, picked up our special starter soils, and are just about ready to start over 1,500 seedlings.  We start ALL of our own plants on Long Entry Farm - something we feel is worth the extra efforts.  Granted, the farmhouse looks more like a greenhouse in March and April, but it's fun to play in the dirt! We have seedling chambers in the basement next to the wood boiler (nice and toasty warm!) and we sow, water, and watch 'em sprout!  And the farming begins!
