We grow what we eat

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  grow well in our soil and (MOST IMPORTANTLY) taste yummy on our dinner table, and yours. 

Yes, that's my dining room!

Winter Hibernation

January/February: Oh... what to plant! Day dreaming and seed ordering and website updating...   


March/April: Starting all those plants... transplanting all those plants... starting more plants... transplanting... starting... oh, my... we go through a LOT of soil mix...“What do you mean we're out of room?!"...  Build another chamber...
