About Us / Speyer's Farm History: Bob & Karen Speyer own and operate, Speyer's Farm & Farm Market. Bob is the third generation in his family to operate the 60 acre farm in this location. Bob's grandfather began here running a dairy farm then switched to vegetables. Today the Speyers run the farm by splitting the chores. In January Bob begins to plant vegetable and flower seeds inside the three greenhouses on the farm. Using traditional farming practices Bob grows the seeds to make starter plants available to customers in the spring. Strawberries,tomatoes (including Heirloom),peas,corn,lettuce,peppers,etc... are ready for customer gardens in May. Karen runs the Farm Market and manages up to 1 Doz. seasonal workers including the Speyer's two daughters. After preparing the 40 acres of tillable soil Bob plants green beans and sweet corn that become available to customers at harvest time. Customers can stop by to purchase plants or fresh produce through October at this family owned, local market.
