Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the farm located?      

Our farm is located on State Route 60 in Lowell, Ohio, 3 miles south of Beverly, Ohio.  We have been farming at this location since 1958.

Do you accept credit cards?

We accept credit and debit cards at the following locations: Lowell, Marietta, Vienna, Southside Parkersburg, Emerson Ave., Parkersburg, Athens, Nelsonville, East Main St. & Memorial Drive, Lancaster, Maple Ave., Zanesville & South Zanesville, Newark, Gahanna, and Smith Farm Market.

 

How is your sweet corn ready so early?

We begin planting corn around the 1st of April.  The first planting is done through a strip of thin clear plastic that acts as a magnifying glass to bring the soil to the correct temperature.  With our fields located on the banks of the Muskingum River, the fog from the river helps ward off the frost.

 

Will you have White Corn?

We will have White Sweet Corn Available for 2 weeks in early August.  Follow us on Facebook for updates on its arrival.

 

Do you sell sweet corn for canning or freezing?

Yes, we sell our sweet corn in party bags of 4 baker's dozens (52 ears).  Party bags offer a $1 per dozen savings.

 

Is your sweet corn GMO?

No, we DO NOT grow GMO sweet corn.  Flavor is our main focus when growing sweet corn and we feel we achieve this using the same varieties we have been growing for years.

 

Do you sell canning tomatoes?

Yes, we sell canning tomatoes in 25lb boxes (that's approximately a 1/2 bushel).  Canning tomatoes are available in early August by special order only.

 

I purchased some produce I am not happy with.  Can I return it?

We guarantee all of our produce.  If you are unsatisfied with our product, we will exchange the product or refund your money.  You can either return to the market or contact the farm for assistance.

 

What can I purchase at your flower markets?

We have a wide selection of hanging baskets, annuals in 4" Pots and Flats, Vegetable Plants, Herbs and Perennials.  We also offer a variety of specialty containers that are handplanted with Julie Witten's famous flowering combinations.

 

How often should I water my container gardens and hanging baskets?

Plants growing in containers have a limited amout of soil, which means they also have a limited amount of moisture, and therefore, need to be watered more frequently than plants growing in the ground. Monitor your containers daily and water as needed. During the hot and dry summer months, you may need to water your containers every day.

 

Do you have any Pick-Ur-Own Fields?

We offer Pick-Ur-Own Strawberries in season (Late May through Mid June).  During this time, the strawberry fields are open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., 7 days a week.  As of this time, strawberries are the only crop available for Pick-Ur-Own.

 

Do you sell the Angus Beef in small quantities so I can sample it?

We sell burgers, steaks and other cuts by the pound at The Marietta Farmers' Market Saturday's from 8 a.m. to noon. Contact Bonnie at 740-984-4802 for more information.
