Farmer Jerry Tucker and his family have been living and raising produce in the Ennis area since 1959. From 1972 to 1995, they were the proprietors of Tucker’s Grocery in nearby Garrett where they sold produce they raised themselves in a nearby garden. They’re out of the grocery store business but the continue to grow crops.
Today, Eatgreendfw.com. announces a newly formed Community Supported Agriculture program. If you become a $500 shareholder you will receive 32 weeks of home grown vegetables. For around $16 a week you’ll get a half bushel with about 20 pounds of seasonal vegetables every week for at least 32 weeks. And, depending on the growing season and Tucker Farms planned greenhouses, the season could be longer! Check out the details and other market information at Eatgreendfw.com.
