24K Heirloom Tomatoes & Friends

In 1987, we first started growing tomatoes in our old garden, which consisted of three raised beds and a very small pumpkin patch. In the early spring of 2005, we moved to the Slocum River-Horseneck Road area in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts. We now have 8 acres that face the Slocum River on a gently rising hill. The land had previously been used for a cattle pasture, and needless to say, is a gardener's paradise. It contains dark rich soil, is drenched in sunshine and moisture, is gracefully guarded by many different birds and animals, and is decorated with a large array of flowers. Our first season was totally exhilarating and we have been energized ever since.

Since then, we have quickly expanded our appreciation of heirloom tomatoes. Their charm, taste, appearance and class are the unique characteristics that give us good reason to continuously expand our endeavors. Not to be overlooked, some modern hybrids include excellent specimens, and are grown along side their classy ancestors.

So we are offering them to you out of our love of growing, our love of sharing beautiful things, and as a fantastic way to do charity. You get the benefits of appreciating and dining on some of the finest tomatoes grown anywhere and knowing that a portion of your money is going to these worthy causes: the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra, the Buttonwood Park Zoo, the Dartmouth Natural Resource Trust, and the YMCA.

Thank you very much for your interest and support.
