Are you looking for vegetables that are delicious, nutritious, freshly harvested, and Certified Organic? In a little field right outside of East Aurora, Dirt Rich Farm grows all sorts of familiar favorites, like broccoli, carrots, lettuce, peas, and potatoes, along with new, unusual, and heirloom vegetables varities like purple Iko Iko sweet peppers, orange Jaune Flamme tomatoes, and purple-streaked yellow Dragon’s Tongue snap beans to bring more variety to your table.
At Dirt Rich Farm, we know that good food and healthy plants come from good soil, which we feed with compost and fish emulsion. Weeds are battled with hoes, good, old-fashioned hand-weeding, and now a fancy new flame weeder. Our drip irrigation not only conserves water, but also reduces the conditions in which fungal disease flourishes on plants. We prevent damage from hungry insects by covering whole rows of sensitive young plants with a lightweight white fabric called row cover or, in the case of cucumber and summer squash plants, a cool kind clay that gets painted on the plants so that they're too slippery for pests to easily walk on. We love to cook with the vegetables we grow (or just eat them raw in the field!), so we want to produce food we can feel good about for ourselves and our customers.
All vegetables are Certified Organic by NOFA-NY Certified Organic LLC.
