How We Grow
Our tomatoes are certified organic and grown in nutrient-rich soil inside a greenhouse -- producing a great tasting tomato throughout a long season.
Long Wind Farm is nestled into the Upper Valley, a region that encompasses both Vermont and New Hampshire. Looking over the tops of our greenhouses, you can see the bridge linking the two states over the Connecticut River. Sitting level with the river, our farm is protected in all directions by mountainous terrain. Our greenhouses allow us to grow year-round and harvest great tasting local tomatoes from February until December.
Each Fall, we begin seeding the next season's crop -- keeping each new plant warm and happy as the days grow shorter and colder. Each tiny seedling has a long journey ahead of them, from seeding tray to a spot the greenhouse, where the vines grow and grow for one full year.
In early January, we move our plants from nursery pots to the soil. All hands are on deck digging holes, planting, and watering. Each tomato plant grows in the ground in the greenhouse for one full year.
Tending & Growing
Tomato plants like ours, that grow all year, can grow to be over 30 feet long! Such hearty vines require continuous tending to ensure the healthiest plants and the most delicious tomatoes. Every week of the year, our crew can be found working among the vines.
Each morning, we pick our ripest tomatoes to pack and deliver to a store near you.
Packing & Delivery
After harvesting, our tomatoes are inspected and packed by hand, ensuring high quality with a personal touch. Our tomatoes are delivered to co-ops, supermarkets, and restaurants throughout New England.
Anyone can pick up a box of tomatoes from our farm stand, open daily 7am-7pm.
