The Great Local Food Tour: Sunnyside

At Sunnyside Farm we found a very friendly and hard working couple and their two dogs. While the dogs lounged in the shade, the husband was picking produce and his wife was selling the goods from the stand. It was a small farm stand where they were selling red and yellow onions, potatoes, corn,  zuccini, tomatoes, cantaloupe, and peppers. 

I was told the farm has been in the Miller family (through marriage) since 1798. They rarely spray and consider themselves mostly organic, although they are not certified. They do not find the pesticides to be worth their time and money- the chemicals are expensive. 

We bought tomatoes, onions, and sweet hot peppers. They also gave us a giant zucchini and a bunch of basil for free. They said the zucchini is too big for them to sell and they have more basil than they would be able to sell or use.
