From the Greenhouses

The Warren Farm is dedicated to growing and producing the finest fresh and preserved foods.  All fresh vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers are started from seed and raised on-site in our greenhouses.  The farm also nurtures excellent fruit and berry stock for sale.  Plants go on sale mid-May, and on Memorial Day Weekend we have our annual Heirloom Tomato Plant Sale event.  Go to Tours & Events for details.
