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, melons,
potatoes, beans, squash, pumpkins, and more. Our herb garden
supplies a full assortment of culinary herbs. We also raise four
acres of cut flowers, and small plantings of strawberries, grapes,
peaches, and beach plums.We keep beef cows on pasture in Chilmark
for which we harvest 45 acres of hay and we also produce eggs, pork
and fresh, pasture-raised chickens to sell in the Farmstand.
Twenty-three acres of our vegetable fields are farmed using natural
practices 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 nature's glory.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 Morning Glory
with their own special contributions.LOCATION: MA,
