Celine Snap Bush Bean    

Vibrant, dark to light purple wax beans with contrasting yellow interior.

Tasty and juicy beans with a strikingly bright, magenta color.These are the first purple wax beans on the market. Plants are healthy producers of uniform beans on robust, bush habit plants. Incredible as a stand-alone bean variety or mixed with other colors for specialty appeal.

 

Brocanto F1 Sweet Pepper      

Sturdy, tall plants with excellent disease resistance, abundantly producing blocky, yellow fruits.

Plants are resilient, performing well in the field or high tunnel with exceptional leaf coverage. Best yellow bell to replace Catriona F1 we?ve seen. High yields of medium-large to large fruits make this variety ideal for commercial production.

 

Bellevue Pelleted Lettuce

Glowing red oak leaves emerging from a bright green core for mini or full-size head production.

Bronzed, maroon leaves hold well in the field and are resistant to bolting during variable weather for all season production. Plants are densely packed with eye-catching leaves, bringing loft to salad mixes when cut as mini or full-sized heads. Texture is buttery but durable enough for washing and spinning

Stories of Resilience 

2020 was challenging. We individually faced many personal difficulties as we isolated, sheltered in place and social distanced from our family and friends. Our food system along with many other key societal structures were tested and many inequities, disconnections and injustices were revealed along the way. Many people planted seeds for the first time while growers in all regions of North America adapted their operations to meet the growing demand local food.  

In our catalog pages we share stories of some individuals that used their skills, their personal power and their faith in humanity to overcome, to innovate and to keep hope that the future could still be turned into something bright if we all did our part to see it through. 

“One thing I have been noticing this season is how some of our customers are buying our vegetables to ‘gift’ to their friends and neighbors. This reminded me of how my grandfather, who lives in a rural part of Japan, often comes home to a basket of vegetables sitting in front of his front door. I think these acts of kindness are the building blocks of a community and help to ensure everybody is getting what they need. What better way to strengthen these connections than to share delicious vegetables?”
