What We Grow

Why do farmers, farm? Love. They must do it for love. They love to watch and nurture plants, they love to live in the presence of animals, they love to work outdoors and wrestle with the weather, and they love to work where they live and live where they work.

  —  Wendell Berry

At Sweetwater Farms, we are a new generation of farmers blending the techniques practiced by successful farmers for hundreds of years with the new knowledge and technology of today.  We are learning every day that by bringing these best farming practices to you, our consumer, we can offer you the most delicious and nutritious fruits and vegetables available. We are the future of farming but have not forgotten the traditions and wisdom that have always existed in the union between nature and man.

COME PICK WITH US!

Our farm offers both PRE-picked and U-pick strawberries and pumpkins during their growing seasons. Children will love getting their pint or quart container at check-in and rushing to the field for delicious red ripe strawberries in the spring or grabbing a wagon to go to the pumpkin patch in the fall.
