We sell just about everything we grow during summer vegetable season. By ordering now, you will guarantee you will have what you want. And this year, we are growing some sweet corn. Keep in mind, you need to use the corn as soon after it is picked for the best quality taste.
During season we offer vine-ripened tomatoes, green tomatoes, cucumbers, yellow squash, zucchini squash, rattlesnake beans, peas, shelled peas, okra, peppers, watermelons, cantaloupes, potatoes, sweet corn, and more. By the bushel: okra, peas, and beans. We also have Holmestead Farm honey, home made jams, jellies, preserves, and fruit breads.
Pre-orders require a credit card deposit to hold and you must pick up your order or there will be a cancellation charge. We have had some instances over the years where folks order but never come to pick up and this just isn’t fair to others wanting to purchase farm fresh vegetables. We hope you understand.
Call Bobby Ray Holmes to order or if you have any questions at 256-404-4316.

We are now approved to take SNAP (Food Stamps).

If you are driving a long distance, it’s always good to call ahead and make sure we have plenty of what you want. Any questions or need info, call 256-404-4316
