Situated on four acres near the border of Massachusetts and New York, Three Maples Market Garden produces naturally grown greens, herbs and vegetables for the Berkshire County community. We grow with three goals in mind: to grow food on land that has laid fallow for decades; to produce high-quality, flavorful and nutritious vegetables; and to make that produce available and affordable for our friends and neighbors.
Three Maples Market Garden gets its name from a row of trees planted by Amanda’s grandfather in the mid-twentieth century, when the property was a working family farm. Our relationship with the history of the place means that we take stewardship of the land very seriously.
- We don’t use synthetic chemicals.
- We focus on nourishing the soil, so the soil can feed the plants.
- We choose crops and varieties best suited to our climate.
- We emphasize heirloom and open-pollinated varieties to preserve plant di versity.
- We encourage biological weed and pest controls.
- We use season extension techniques in an effort to support year-round local eating.
- We do our level best to keep our produce affordable, because everyone deserves access to fresh, local fruits and veggies.
Three Maples Market Garden uses organic practices, but we’re not Certified Organic at this time.
