It’s not too soon to be thinking about this year’s First Peas to the Table Contest. Inspired by a long-ago competition among Thomas Jefferson and his neighbors, we started our First Peas contest a few years ago and it’s always a highlight of the season when we crown the winner!

One of our first winners, Christine Gault

So grab those seed catalogs, pick a likely contender and get ready to plant those peas. The sooner you start, the closer you are to winning.

When it’s time to harvest, just bring our farmstand manager a measured cup of your shelled peas.

Repeat winner Thomas Hodgson

If you’re the first to bring us a cup of kitchen-ready peas, you will claim the title and a $50 Moglo gift card, plus our chef Robert Lionette will cook a spring dish with your winning entry.

Good luck, everybody!
