The farm market that is currently operating was actually begun in 1990 by a very industrious 12 year old, Doug Zimmerman. He began as a teenager wanting to earn some money and grew three fourths of an acre of sweet corn. Our early customers met Doug selling corn off the front porch of our mobile home that sat close to where the sales building sits today. After a successful beginning, Doug enlarged the second year to one a half acres of sweet corn and did very well. His father, Bill Zimmerman, then approached him with the idea of forming a partnership to grow other vegetables. This included broccoli, cauliflower, squash and even berries. They also toyed with the idea of a pumpkin patch to have fun at the end of a long summer. From such humble beginnings, our adventure began.
