Frequently Asked Questions
Do you sell organic produce?
Yes and No. We try to sell 75% pesticide free produce but Alaska is a cold northern climate and does not have very many pest problems. Pesticide use is at a bare minimum in Alaska. For instance, Alaska has no potato bugs which is a huge advantage to the health of our potatoes.
How do I know what is in season at the store?
Like us on Facebook where we will try to update our store availability on a weekly basis. Also Subscribe to our Newsletter for weekly updates and new products.
When is your season? What are your daily hours?
We are open daily from 10am-6pm. Fresh Alaskan grown produce becomes abundant from Mid June to Mid October.
I’d like to order my vegetables in bulk. Is there way I can do that?

Where do you get your vegetables and produce?
We supply the store from our farm (learn more about us here) and from various farms (learn more about farms we work with) around Palmer, Alaska.
I really want to learn how to preserve (can, freeze, ferment) the produce that I buy. Where can I find resources to do this?
