Reuben is a familiar, friendly face to east enders and to anyone who visits the Department of Agriculture. He produces huge papayas and dragon fruit at Solitude Farms and we are thrilled to be able to bring you the fruits of his labors at ARTfarm.

Poor Farmer Luca is very sad to have to sell some of his young fig trees, but he just doesn’t have enough room for all of them at ARTfarm. Stop by today and adopt one of these little guys, and give it a loving home. Reasonable adoption fees.

We’ve got sweet and spicy salad mixes, microgreens, baby arugula, asian water spinach, lemongrass, garlic chives, fresh big bunches of basil, sweet ripe papayas, ripe local bananas, sugar apples, limes and fresh cut-to-order coconuts you can drink with a straw at the farmstand or take home and chill in the fridge.

We also have Black Olive trees, and other native tree varieties, for sale in one and three gallon pot sizes. These are drought and disease tolerant shade trees. Ask for more information at the stand!

A drought tolerant, mature Black Olive tree has a wide canopy that provides a lot of shade.

Nature’s Answer to the Juicebox at ARTfarm, 10am-noon Today!

We have amazingly sweet coconuts you drink right out of the nut! If you haven’t had fresh coconut juice right out of the husk, you haven’t tried what man has attempted to recreate in plastic pseudo-nutrition with Gatorade and juice boxes.

Fresh coconut juice is locally known as a kidney cleanser. It’s full of trace minerals and potassium. In wartime when plasma was not available, fresh coconut water was used in IV drips to hydrate patients in hospital.

We can cut your coconuts at the farmstand for you to drink immediately, or almost open – take a few home and stick them in the fridge. We keep a whole pitcher full of coconut water in our fridge. There is nothing better for rehydration.

For your veggie pleasure we have fresh harvested arugula, baby spicy mix, microgreens, asian spinach, garlic chives, basil, lemongrass, mangoes, avocados, Feel I’s ice cream and Sweetface chocolate!

For your yard we have native trees!

See you at the farmstand!
