Fresh Vegetables - Hydroponically Grown
The Market is closed.
Please check this website for
if/when we reopen.
We, at Bob's Veggie Patch, want to welcome you to our site.  Our goal is to provide
you with a variety of farm fresh vegetables grown hydroponically.  

A brief history about us...

We are proud to have served the Community now for eight years!

In February 2004, we decided to take a venture into hydroponic gardening.  We
started out small just to see how we liked it.  Since then, we have grown in size by
leaps and bounds, and opened our market for business in October 2004.  To see
photos, click the "Our Garden" button on the left.











We grow a variety of vegetables hydroponically in various sized containers. In the
first quarter of 2009 we planted another 100 blueberry plants and installed an
automatic watering system for the plants. We are experimenting with a new
insecticide and fungicide, that is made of orange oil, to control the insects and
fungus.  This fall we will be using lady bugs and lace wings to control invasive
insects.  We continue to find ways and methods to produce high quality vegetables.
We start planting in September and will be growing over twenty (20) different
vegetables.

We also provide a variety of fresh vegetables from local farms, fresh brown eggs
from our hens, and raw wildflower honey with the comb from our bee hives.

Our hours beginning this fall of 2012 are as follows:

     Saturday - 9:00am to 5:00pm
    and
           Sunday - 9:00am to 4:00pm

Call if you need to stop on the way home after 5:00pm.




Thought for the day:  

Fresh Vegetables and a Healthy Life go Hand in Hand.
