Harvest times vary according to planting, weather, deer and other unforseen threats. Thornbury Farm works hard to supply variety and quality to its members but no farm can grow everything. Therefore, there are times when we partner with other local farms that adhere to the same high standards.
Restaurants, vendors or artisans that are interested in a business partnership with Thornbury Farm should contact Randell Spackman.
