We are a family owned  &  operated small farm that grows & sells locally! At Rock Bottom Farm, our goal is to provide the freshest produce with the most flavor possible. With this in mind, most produce is picked and flowers cut the day before or the day of sale! The main crops we raise each year are tomatoes & corn. But we also grow potatoes, cabbage, onions, cucumbers, beans, squash & peppers.In 2008 we started herbs & cut flowers.For 2010 we plan to offer quality lettuces picked at the peak of freshness.

Opening day for the Foothills Farmers' Market is April 24 and will run each Wednesday and Saturday from 8am to 12 noon ending on November 27.

We plan to sell at the roadside location(226S between Gregory's Car Sales and Ingles) this year July through October on Thursdays and Fridays. The weather and how our crops produce will determine how long we are able to sell at any of the planned locations.

We are also looking at the possibilities of two other markets. Needless to say we are planning to plant a lot.We just hope we can care for, produce,harvest,wash,package and transport a lot!
