About Us / Garrett's Garden History: Our farm is the remaining acreage of a larger farm that has been in the family for almost four centuries. My Stepfather, Craige Moore, began an organic small grains, beef and vegetable operation here in the late 1970's. He was a pioneer in his field but eventually began working off the farm. The land however continued to be managed organically to this day. I, Matthew Garrett, saw potential in the old place and moved home and began making plans for a sustainable small farm. It became very clear in the first days of planning that direct marketing was not only desirable but necessary. As a first step we both served on advisory committees to develop a local farmers market. The farmers market was a great success and provided a means to develop a customer base.
