morning glory farm
about the farm
Starting in 1975 with sweet corn at the Farmers' Market, Jim and Debbie Athearn proceeded to cultivate larger gardens, then cleared fields from woods on family land and established a roadside stand in Edgartown. Today, Jim and Debbie farm with their two sons, Simon and Daniel, and many employees, on 120 acres of owned and leased land from Edgartown to Chilmark. They cultivate 60 acres of corn, tomatoes, lettuce beans and all the usual vegetables that can be grown on Martha's Vineyard. Strawberries provide an occasion for a festival in June and pumpkins sponsor a large and festive event in October. 40 acres of hay and 20 of pasture provide feed for their grass-fed beef cattle with the beef sold as frozen cuts in the farmstand. About 50 pigs a year are raised using surplus vegetables in their diet as well as conventional grains and home-grown, non-GMO feed corn. Pasture-raised chickens add to the protein element at the farmstand along with the pork and beef.
