Our Packaging Commitment

When Jim and Debbie Athearn first started this farm more than 40 years ago, packaging was pretty basic. Our original farmstand had paper bags for customers to fill with produce, just as we do today. 

But now we stock a lot more than just our farm-raised vegetables, herbs and fruits. We have a carry-out soup and salad bar, coffee and tea to go, farm-baked breads and pastries and a panorama of meals and side dishes from our farm kitchen. IMG_8498

So paper bags aren’t enough any more: All these housemade products, along with the dried fruits, nuts and other snacks we sell, have to be packaged for our customers. And unfortunately, that usually means plastic. We’re not happy when we have to use any disposable items that can’t be recycled or repurposed, so our managers have been working to source the most sustainable carry-out and to-go containers we can find. It’s part of our commitment to being an environmentally sustainable farm that leaves the lightest “footprint” possible. Read More

Asparagus Harvest Begins

A week ago, our asparagus shoots had barely broken the ground. Today we brought in the earliest of the crop, which barely lasted into the afternoon. Farm manager Ethan Buchanan-Valenti says it will be a couple of weeks yet before we’re picking asparagus every day, but with this sunny Monday it looks good for another small harvest Tuesday morning. We’re continuing to carry off-Island asparagus, as well.

Mi Tierra Tortillas: Fresh, Organic, Made in Massachusetts

We’re pleased to introduce Mi Tierra Tortillas to Martha’s Vineyard. These organic, gluten-free tortillas are made in Western Massachusetts using locally grown corn from the fertile Connecticut Valley. They have no GMOs, no preservatives and no additives — just organic corn, fresh water and slaked lime, combined in the ancient Mexican process known as nixtamalization. mitierraWe are offering Mi Tierra tortillas for sale at the farmstand, and our kitchen team is using them to prepare the popular Farm Beef Tacos take-home entree. Please let us know what you think of them.
