A Few of Ef's Favorites

Tomato Tomato

With nearly a half of an acre in high tunnel and greenhouse space, tomato season comes early around EF. The tomatoes are started one little seed at a time typically in mid February and transplanted into the houses by April. Each plant is carefully trellised and pruned daily. Each fruit delicately picked and packed one at a time to ensure you are getting the best quality.

Sweet Peppers

Along with tomatoes, some of the peppers have taken up residence in 4 different tunnels giving EF a hand in the early green and red pepper market.

Pickling Cucumbers (Cukes to the locals)

Though they are labeled as "pickling" cukes, they are just as perfect as a typical slicing cuke for your salad, sandwich and of course "pickles". Every Mainer looks forward to this super crunchy summer snack!

Winter spinach

When the tomatoes are done and the snow starts to fall, EF plants spinach inside. Several high tunnels are planted with spinach seed for an all winter harvest.

Winter spinach is exceptionally sweet because the plant builds up sugars in response to cold, which protect its cells from bursting in freezing conditions
