Off the beaten berry path

Unusual varieties make your offerings stand out from the crowd
I’m a suburban farmer. I started almost 10 years ago on 1/3 acre in my backyard. At first I grew a variety of vegetables - heirloom tomatoes, pea shoots, squash blossoms, basil, among others. I made out pretty well, but eventually I found it hard to compete with larger farms regarding quantity and diversity of items I could offer. After considering a range of options, I decided to go in another direction - berries.
