The produce stand is like a “farmers market” open August through October. It features fresh produce with 98% of the produce grown at the farm. What isn't grown at the farm is mostly purchased from local farmers. If you would like us to notify when we have various produce available at the market, please mark each one you want below and we will notify you when it is available.
Tigges Farm is known for its variety of tomatoes that have a great flavor and a meaty center, ideal for canning or salsa or a bacon, lettuce, tomato sandwich. You can buy them individually for the table or by the bushel to preserve. Bushels can be ordered ahead of time on site or by phone. Call 970-686-7225. NO e-mail orders. You can request to be put on the tomato call list so you know when the tomatoes have matured.
Chiles from mild to very hot, eggplant, honey, sweet corn, cucumbers, pie baking pumpkins, honeydew, watermelon and many varieties of squash are available during their harvest season. No potatoes – they got heavy and we got old!
For those who have never preserved food by canning but want to learn, fact sheets are available from CSU Extension or contact your County Cooperative Extension Office for information on taking the Master Food Preserver classes.
All the chilies (chiles) sold at Tigges Farm are grown at the farm and picked fresh. Customers who have tired the chilies return as nothing beats the flavor of farm freshness. The most popular is the Big Jim Mix – a special mix of three green Anaheim’s for just the right flavor and heat. You can buy all chilies individually and most by the bushel. They are fire roasted on site at no additional charge. Bushels may be ordered ahead of time on site or by phone at 970-686-7225. NO e-mail orders.
