About Mary, Plant Manager

From my pictures you can guess I live on a farm. We raise vegetables which we sell off the farm, through our Fields to Meals (FTM), at our farm stand and at a produce auction. I am the 'plant manager'.

The Lock Farm Welcomes a New Helper

His job is a very important as he keeps the bad bugs under control.

Tomatoes in a container get watered automatically through a drip.

Spinach has an underground drip line.

There Is Some Good News

While things seem to be bad all around the good news at the Lock Farm is that our crops are growing on schedule. It is our hope that all these will grow well and that we will have lots of fresh vegetables to serve the needs of our customers and the community.
