Beginning with spinach and spring onions, and ending with thousands of pounds of winter squash, potatoes, and storage onions, the growing year at Singing Earth Produce includes every type of vegetable in top quality and bountiful quantity. Jose and Adolfo Calixto are a father-and-son team that has been living and farming 20 acres outside of Waynesboro for the past 12 years.
More recently, they began leasing an additional 30 acres outside of Harrisonburg for sprawling crops like melons and gourds. While they stay incredibly busy and produce an astonishing amount of food (imagine 3,435 pounds of watermelon, harvested and loaded into bins in their truck by hand, plus 1,730 pounds of tomatoes…and that was just one delivery!) the Calixtos are always interested in learning about new crops and market opportunities – and willing to gently correct our Spanish vegetable vocabulary.
