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,
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
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.
