Charlie and Christine Forman have been farming on the Brewer’s Mills Road since 1973.
In order to diversify our farm business, we purchased a greenhouse operation from our neighbour in 2005. Christine manages the greenhouse with a staff of 1 full time, 1 part time and 4 seasonal employees. The main crop is hydroponic tomatoes; however we also produce mini-cucumbers and eggplant in the greenhouse during summer and fall. Outdoor crops of garlic, sweet com, carrots, green and yellow beans, snap peas and mini-potatoes as well as pumpkins, squash and gourds add to the variety of products available. Bedding plants, annuals, perennials, grasses as well as specialty plants and shrubs are available in May and June. Production of custom flower containers is a thriving part of our business.
