ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION: Morning Glory Farm, started in 1975 by
James and Deborah Athearn, grows about 65 acres of vegetables and
small fruits on the island of Martha's Vineyard.
Small successive plantings of a wide variety of crops supply the
Farmstand from May through December.
Crops include sweet corn, lettuce, carrots, beets, tomatoes,

and only OMRI certified fertilizers and pesticides. We manage the
rest of our land with a minimum of pesticides and with attention to
the long-term health of the soil.
The farm name grew from the vision of the sun rising over lush,
green fields, cows with udders full of milk ambling past bountiful
gardens and hedgerows lively with honeybees: true wealth of
Each year we meet a new crew of farmers, bakers, cooks, and
Farmstand staff who become part of the farm family. The farm has
benefited from a variety of wonderful people who have endowed
