WHAT WE GROW

Wishful Acres Farm was established in 2009.  Our family farm consists of 10 acres, with half in woods and half in organically-grown specialty crops, outdoor seating for our brewery, and buildings.  To read about us & our history, visit the About Us page.  Each season, Wishful Acres Farm grows over 100 varieties of vegetables, herbs, fruits, and hops, which are all sold through our membership program, and are also used in the beers we create.   Below is the list of vegetables, fruits, hops, and herbs that we grow.  

We do not sell our vegetables, fruits, and herbs to the general public.  Rather, our crops are all pre-sold through our membership program - called a CSA Program (Community Supported Agriculture).  To learn more about receiving our vegetables & more all season long, visit our CSA Program page!

Vegetables & Herbs: 

Seasonal availability, sold through our CSA member program (CSA members receive all of our crops).    Some crops are also used to make our artisan craft beers, all brewed here at our farm.

(All vegetables, herbs, and fruits are pre-sold through our membership program. Please note, we do not sell any produce outside of our membership program. Not available for sale to the general public, our apologies, as we only have enough available for our membership program.)  To learn more about our Membership Program, click here.
