At Stearns Farm we grow over 30 varieties of vegetables, berries, herbs and flowers. Some of the vegetables are familiar, others may be new to you. New sharers are sometimes overwhelmed by the variety and quantity of produce. One of the most challenging aspects of joining a CSA can be learning how to prepare and store unfamiliar vegetables, and getting used to the cyclical nature of the harvest season. The Harvest Chart lists all the crops we grow at Stearns Farm. The Vegetable Information Pages provide an overview of each crop. And the Recipes help you figure out what to do with the wealth of produce you just picked up.
