Thank you for supporting our local farm this year. Our season ends October 31st. Hope
To our valued customers and friends: This year has been a challenging year for all of us. All of us at Vollmer Farms sincerely thank you for supporting our local farm this year. As our season comes to a close, we wish you and your families safety, health and happiness. We look forward to seeing you next spring!
Don't forget to read below about a great idea for next spring... Rick's Hay Bale Garden! An idea from one of our customers that worked great!
Vollmer Farms is a family farm that has been in its current location since 1925. It was purchased by Bennett Vollmer at the age of 25. It was here that he and his wife grew vegetables with the the help of his three sons. Eventually two of the sons took over the farm and also began to grow ornamental plants along with their vegetable starter plants. Bennett's grandson, Dave, now runs the vegetable farm and greenhouses along with some very dedicated employees.
This year many people planted a vegetable or flower garden who never had before! For those customers who didn't have a garden plot in their yards, they got creative! Many built raised beds, but this customer of ours found a really inexpensive and productive solution... a hay bale garden! He got 10 bales of hay, watered and fertilized it for a week, put good soil on the top, and voila! He had a great, simple garden that produced like crazy! See the picture of those tomato plants just taken October 26th still producing and healthy!
Look at the thickness of that stalk and the tomatoes still growing on October 26th! They're still picking bowls of cherry tomatoes! You can buy your hay bales from our farm in the spring and we'll share how to plant your own hay bale garden! It''s a great height to pick from too! Kids love it and it's a great conversation piece. Once it's done, you just put the hay in the compost pile for next year! Totally natural!
Is this your first garden? If so, you may have lots of produce to eat! Sign up here for some great ideas!
There's nothing like advice from the farmers and the team that starts and nurtures the plants. We're here to answer your questions to ensure your garden success.
