Restored to the original layout from 1918, the Garden at Elawa Farm produces more than 8,000 pounds of sustainably grown fruits, vegetables, and cutting flowers. More than two acres are cultivated each season through the hard work of the Elawa Farm team and volunteers.
At Elawa Farm, over two acres are cultivated every year, providing a remarkable array of heirloom tomatoes, lettuces and fresh greens, carrots, beets, squash, honey, flower bouquets, herbs and more. Our freshly harvested produce and flowers are available for sale at our on-site Garden Market on Friday and Saturday mornings during the summer.
Striving towards sustainability, the garden utilizes practices such as field rotation, cover cropping, beneficial predation and organic composting. All these practices are executed by our dedicated volunteers and interns whose work ensures Elawa’s continued role here in the community as a source for fresh, organically grown local produce.
Do not miss out on our annual seedling sale - ordering is now live! Expect a variety of vegetable and herb seedlings this growing season, including German Johnson tomatoes, Hungarian Hot Wax pepper, Madonna bell pepper, Italian parsley, thyme, sage, and more.
