This is a diversified vegetable operation with sweet corn, watermelons, summer squash, pumpkins, cantaloupe and other minor crops. Tomato and pepper samples will be available for discussion. This will be an informal tour, with plenty of opportunity to discuss your vegetable questions with other growers. Handouts and other brochures will be available.
