Vegetables and Othere Produce
  Some of the things we grow at McAdams Farm are: tomatoes, peppers, summer squash, winter squash, cucumbers, green beans, okra, eggplant, lettuce, spinach, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes, onions, beets, cabbage, and collards. We also grow cantaloupes, specialty melons, watermelons, peaches, and muscadine grapes.

Our selection varies day to day with the weather and the growing season, but some of the produce we grow and approximate harvesting seasons are shown below.

We began selling a few vegetables at the Farmers' Market in Hillsborough in 1998, and in 1999 we switched to selling at the Carrboro Farmers' Market and have been there ever since, and also sell at our farm stand.

  Every season we make several plantings of each different crop. This allows us to extend our harvesting season. Almost all of the vegetables are grown in raised beds with black plastic mulch and drip irrigation. This irrigation system conserves water by putting the moisture directly in the ground beside the plant, where it is needed the most.

We grow hundreds of varieties of vegetables, from Sungold, Early Girl and Celebrity tomatoes to Athena cantaloupes and Golden Beauty melons, and from baby Zephyr and pattypan squash to Cool Breeze cucumbers. If there are crops or varieties you'd like us to grow, please let us know.
