This is a family operation being a member of BisMarket farmer's market in Bismarck. We call ourselves Farm Fresh Gardens.
We began in 1992 with the intention of getting the children involved in agriculture from sowing to marketing. Now that the children have left home the operation is continuing with the children being involved as they can. Even if they cannot be involved in the operation they still patronize their local farmer's market.
Our primary crops are pumpkins, summer and winter squash, shelling and snap peas, beets, carrots and potatoes. Minor crops include tomatoes, peppers, pickling cucumbers, dill and green beans.
I believe that the North Dakota Farmers Market and Growers Association provides opportunities for education in order to be successful as a grower and marketer of specialty crops in North Dakota.
