Welcome to Our Market Garden!

Hey! We are Jon and Kathy and we own and operate Sweet Fern Organics. We got our feet wet with market gardening in 2021 and are ready to start our second year in 2022!

A Family Run Garden in Northumberland County Since 2021

Sweet Fern Organics is pretty new on the Northumberland Market Garden scene, with just one year under our belts. We grow veggies using organic methods. NEVER ANY PESTICIDES USED!

What was once a hobby has become a passion and we love growing for our community and supplying fresh, delicious veggies week after week during the growing season.

We also understand the importance of supporting our environment and are environmentally conscious when making decisions regarding packaging and best gardening practices.

You will find that we use paper over plastic and choose compostable, recyclable, and reusable products wherever possible, on and off the farm!.

Small-Scale Farm

We practice low/no-tillage and use mostly hand tools from planting to harvest.

pea shoots

We grow delicious, nutritious microgreens all year round!

Microgreens are simply greens that are harvested when they are very young. We currently grow four varieties: pea, radish, sunflower, and broccoli. They are very nutritious and fun to grow!
