Morning Glory Farm, started in 1975 by James and Deborah Athearn, grows about 50 acres of vegetables and small fruits on the Island. The farm stand boasts a small grocery store, salad bar, freshly baked goods, and fresh made soups, juices, and prepared food, and is open seven days a week from May through December. A great stop before going to the beach.
The farm grows a variety of sweet corn, lettuce, carrots, beets, tomatoes, melons, potatoes, beans, squash, pumpkins, and more, and also sells an abundance of produce from nearby off-Island farms.
Their organically grown herb garden supplies a full assortment of culinary herbs. They also raise two acres of cut flowers, and small plantings of strawberries, blueberries, peaches, and beach plums. They also keep beef cows for whom they harvest 30 acres of hay and produce eggs, pork, and fresh pastured chickens to sell in the farmstand.
Don’t miss: Zucchini bread, anything fresh off the farm, and the Swedish apple pie. Fresh baked goods hot out of the oven go on the shelves each day at 2 pm. Beware, as they sell out quick.
