30+ Varieties of Farm Fresh Tomatoes!
Heirloom tomatoes have regained their popularity in recent years. Grown from seeds which have been saved through generations, these favorites have that “old-fashioned” flavor which is sometimes lost in supermarket varieties. Heirlooms tend to be a bit more perishable than hybrids but rank high in flavor and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Verrill Farm specializes in growing over 30 varieties of fresh tomatoes and sells vine-ripened tomatoes at the stand during the growing season. All of our fresh tomatoes are sold by name, so you can easily find your favorite variety when you shop.
Verrill Farm grown heirloom and hybrid tomatoes are available at the farm stand from approximately the end of July through the end of September. You’ll find new varieties and old favorites for slicing, sauces and to ‘put up’ for a taste of summer all year long!
Our annual August Corn & Tomato Festival is one of our most popular annual events and the perfect opportunity to taste over 30 varieties of fresh tomatoes and find your favorite. Please stop by!
