Our roots come from the Christopherson family dating back to 1896. The farm began on School Street and has remained in the family through what is now the current 4th and 5th generations. Cucurbit Farm grows annuals, perennials, tomatoes, corn, pumpkins and a wide variety of vegetables that are sold seasonally at the farmstand.
What is a cucurbit???
In short, a vine crop.
Pronounced ‘Kyoo-ker-bit’ (think cucumber), a cucurbit is any plant in the gourd family (Cucurbitaceae) which consists of nearly 1000 species! Some cucurbits that we grow are pumpkins, summer and winter squashes, cucumbers, melons, and many more.
