9 How do I warm my carry-out entrée? What if I froze it?
Entrées from our farm kitchen are fully cooked and need only 15-30 minutes in a preheated 350-degree oven. If you have frozen the entrée first, defrost it in the refrigerator overnight. We cannot recommend any other way of safely defrosting frozen foods.

11 Do you sell wholesale?
Yes, to qualified customers. Please see our Wholesale page for details and ordering information.
12 How can I tell which produce comes from Morning Glory Farm?
Just look for the signs that say “Morning Glory Farm – Our Own”. Everything we grow is identified by this sign. If the sign doesn’t say “Our Own”, it’s not ours.

18 Do you sell beer and wine?
Morning Glory Farm is not licensed to sell alcoholic beverages. There are package stores in Edgartown and Oak Bluffs, including one on Airport Road off West Tisbury Road.
19 Do you sell fresh fish?
We do not have a fresh fish counter. Smoked fish is stocked in the dairy case.
20 I love your Farmstand, but it is often so crowded. What should I do?
Our Farmstand does come to feel awfully small in the peak of the summer when we have so much of our produce in season. The slowest times at the stand are usually between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., and mid-afternoon on good beach days. Thank you for being patient; many people will attest that with five registers working, things can move quite briskly.
21 What do you do in the winter?
We keep on farming, and now we are also keeping the farmstand open year-round, along with the kitchen and bakery.
Many farm chores get pushed into the slower winter months, like maintenance of our outbuildings, tractors and machines. Our pigs, cows and chickens work hard all year round. Winter is a special time on a farm: time for reflection, evaluation, and planning for the coming season. Surprising to many people is that the first tomato seeds are planted in January and the greenhouses are active by March 1.
