After buying a tractor In 1981, Steve and Kirsten Mong were asked to cut and bale hay for those around their town. Eventually, their skills progressed to pruning and caring for apple trees. Thanks to the connections they made cutting hay and pruning apple trees in their community, they were able to set up their own farm stand. They sold excess vegetables from their garden, flowers, apples, and, of course, hay. Steve’s brother, Ray, joined their small team in 1983. They learned the tricks of the trade and were eventually able to expand their efforts: from growing and selling flowers and bedding plants, to diverse vegetable production on their own farm. They use sustainable farming methods to care for their now 25 acre farm. Their customers include those who visit their farm stand, local restaurants, Whole Foods Market, and Boston Food Hub. Customers enjoy their fresh greens, crunchy radishes, corn, and a variety of other seasonal vegetables!
