Berry U-pick and Farm Stand - Tuesdays 5-7pm
The berries are finally producing and they are delicious! Come on out every Tuesday night from 5-7pm to pick your own strawberries, raspberries and blackberries as they're in season. Bring your own container or use ours. Prices are $4/lb strawberries, $7/lb raspberries and $5/lb blackberries. A great variety of veggies grown on-site by The Funky Beet Farm will also be available for sale. See you there!
Pumpkin Patch - Saturday October 5th
Save the date! Our 2019 pumpkin patch will happen Saturday, October 5th this year, complete with beautiful pumpkins, snacky goodies, and activities for the kiddos. More info coming soon!
After experiencing the more balanced lifestyle that comes from not farming full time, we have chosen to stay on that path! So instead of the full shebang of vegetable production, this year we will be offering our berry u-pick as well as school tours in September and our awesome pumpkin patch in October. Thanks to a wonderful symbiotic partnership with some new farmer friends (see below!) our weekly farm stand is back in action with a variety of veggies. Stay up to date about farm events and news by following us on Facebook and Instagram, or scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up for our e-mail list.
The Funky Beet
This year we're welcoming some new farmer friends onto our site - Danny, Lexi and Finola are The Funky Beet! These recent transplants from Idaho have some great farming experience, and they're diving into Quincy life with gusto. They'll be growing produce on our land at the farm, and running our weekly farm stand, so you'll get to meet them out there.

What's with the name?
We chose the name Five Foot Farm because the farm's founders - Elizabeth and Cody - are each just over 5 feet tall. In an age where farms are dominated by big corporations and the farmer stereotype is a muscular 6 foot tall dude, we're proud to diversify the field. We hope that Five Foot Farm serves as an example that people of all shapes and sizes can work hard and contribute to the movement of small farms growing real food.
