Buffalo Ridge Orchard

Growing Quality Local Produce Responsibly

Tomatoes in full swing, finally!


Our Apples and tomatoes on display at the NewBo Farmer’s Market

We have been harvesting tomatoes for a couple of weeks but our production is finally in full swing – just in time for apple season.  We have spent several years improving our vegetable production with moveable hoophouses so that the harvest of our summer crops comes before we start picking apples.  Despite our careful planning, a cool Spring followed by a cool summer postponed tomato picking into August.  This means Mary is a busy woman harvesting the last of our summer crops of beets, cucumbers, and zucchini and now spends her free time harvesting hundreds of pounds of tomatoes.  Of course we can’t complain that we are able to have beautiful tomatoes with lunch followed by a crisp apple for dessert.

About buffaloridgeorchard

Buffalo Ridge Orchard grows vegetables, apples, and pears for local coops and farmer's markets. We have over 25 different types of new and classic apple varieties. In 2011 we installed our first moveable hoop house which allows us to grow greens and root vegetables in the winter and get an early start on tomatoes and extend the season for other vegetable crops.
