Hepworth Farms 2016 season is in full swing!
If you're wondering what the long green spikey gourd is on slide 2 and 7 ~ wonder no more. The Indian name for it is "Karela". This is a bitter gourd and although bitter, this vegetable has a unique taste that is a delicacy in India and much of southeast Asia. Our customers have been loving this vegetable!
Hepworth Farms, established 1818, is a seventh-generation family farm in Milton, New York. The farm is located on the Hudson River approximately 75 miles north of New York City. After graduating from Cornell University in 1982, farmer Amy Hepworth assumed leadership and began the process of dechemicalization, transitioning from standard farming practices to a "whole systems approach." Today, Hepworth Farms has 400 acres of NOFA-certified production land yielding more than 400 varieties of organic vegetables. They specialize in tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, zucchini, cucumbers, and many varieties of greens. The farm is operated by Amy, her twin sister Gail Hepworth and Gerry Greco.
