A Family Affair at Westmoreland Produce

(From farm to farmer's market: Veggies picked fresh at Westmoreland Produce's farm.)

Family-owned and operated Westmoreland Produce was founded by husband and wife duo Arnulfo and Rosa Medina in 1989. The Medinas started off in humble beginnings but nearly three decades later, their farm remains family-owned and is operated by only family, including their adult children. Westmoreland Produce harvests all of their own produce and plants, which allows them to provide the freshest vegetables and fruits possible.

For over 20 years, Westmoreland Produce has been providing our local region with fresh produce at local farmers markets, including Pike Central Farm Market. From rotating their crops to keep the soil fertile, and hand-hoeing their field for weeding as an alterative to using herbicides, to harvesting their vegetables when they’re fully ripened, Westmoreland Produce strives to provide the best and freshest possible produce. Farming is their passion and it shows.

(Three generations of the family help run the farm!)

Their selection includes arugula, beets, cabbage, carrots, ten varieties of cherry tomatoes, watermelons, sweet corn, cantaloupes, summer squash, cucumbers, eggplant, various sweet and hot peppers, and more. Check out Westmoreland Produce at Pike Central Farm Market and stock up on locally-farmed fresh veggies, fruit, and plants!
