There are very few produce farmers in the Cambridge area so that's part of what makes Gillespie's Garden so extra special.
Gillespie's is the "go to" place for fresh picked sweet corn as well as a wealth of other local produce such as berries, tomatoes, cucumbers, garlic, onions, beets, peas, beans, carrots, potatoes, beets, squash, beans, pumpkins and melons. Potted herbs, cut flowers and mums are also available.
Brian Gillespie is a fourth generation dairy farmer but back in 1992 he made the switch from milk to corn. He now manages the 35 acres of sweet corn (yellow, bi-colour, white and gourmet varieties), while his wife Pam runs the store and harvesting of the smaller crops along with the help of their three daughters. With all the variables in farming they continue to strive to offer the best quality product possible.
A successful yield of corn is dependent not only upon annual irrigation of the fields but also adequate warmth and sunshine. During the harvest season, the ears are picked daily. Come taste the difference that freshness and quality makes!
