What's for Dinner

Because Puddle Produce Farm is a small-scale producer, it grows a lot of...small-scale vegetables! We specialize in crops like salad mixes, root crops, and microgreens, but we also maintain variety, growing a lot of what you would expect from a local farm. Below is a list of some staple items that you will find at the local farmers markets, in weekly CSA boxes, and our online store (when in season and pending availability):

Crops We Grow That You Will Almost Never See in a Grocery Store

One of the perks we like most about growing vegetables locally is that you can grow SO many varieties that you can't get anywhere else. Oftentimes, it's because certain vegetables don't travel or keep well, so grocery stores won't carry them. Since local produce is often harvested days before sale, we can do that!

Here are some of the crops we grow that aren't typically available in stores:

  • Hakurei (salad) turnips

  • Icicle & French Breakfast radishes

  • purple kohlrabi

  • Chioggia beets

  • Ronde de Nice summer squash

  • microgreens

  • Romanesco squash

  • pattypan squash

  • lemon cucumbers

  • heirloom tomatoes

Our Definition of Local

To us, local food means that - should you ever have the urge - you can shake the hand of the farmer that produced the food on your plate. 

Microgreens & Sprouts

Puddle Produce Farm loves growing micros and sprouts! And is one of just a few producers in the region specializing in these cute little salad toppers. 

So...what the heck is a microgreen? It is a stage of growth rather than a variety of vegetable: it is basically the baby version of any vegetable plant, grown and cut after the first set of leaves has formed. They are used in salads, sandwiches, hot dishes, or just on their own! And they have 4%-40% more concentrated nutrition than their full-grown counterparts. Puddle Produce grows the following:

  • pea shoots

  • sunflower shoots

  • radish 

  • broccoli

  • buckwheat

  • purple kohlrabi

  • red cabbage

  • bok choi

  • crunchy bean mix
