tomatoes at Warren Farm

Looking to freeze/can/make sauce?

You can pick-your-own tomatoes at Warren Farm in Barrington. On their website today:

The PYO tomato patch is open and loaded with tomatoes, red or green, and priced at $1/lb. We have 15 varieties and most of them are ready. The romas are ripe in the center clusters. We have two varieties of them this year, Viva italiana, roma and big mamma.   Lots of customers make sauce using the heirloom Mortgage Lifter also, as it is so meaty, and combine it with the other varieties. Sometime in September we have a frost, however we cover our tomatoes and continue to pick them. Last year we picked tomatoes until October 28th!  We have late plantings of cukes, summer squash, zucchini, lettuce and kale also. We cover up any crops that are not frost tolerant and keep them going as long as possible.

Heather Warren updates the site daily, and you can always call ahead to check picking conditions -
