Check out DeVreis Farm at the Glenwood Farmers Market on Saturday

Bill learned the produce business (growing, hoeing, picking and marketing) from his brothers, though he chose a trade first and then the fields.

The fields at DeVreis Farm include tomatoes, chilies, squash, corn, green beans, cabbage, potatoes, onions and beets. Bill’s dedication to producing the finest in quality starts with many of these plants being sown in trays in early spring so that they can be transplanted into the field for an earlier harvest.

The first 10 acres of this vegetable operation was purchased in 1966. Today the operation covers 150 acres and also includes some alfalfa hay.

When visiting any number of the markets where DeVreis Farm operates a stand, the opportunity to talk to Bill will allow you to see that this is a family operation, from his wife keeping the store to their children assisting at the markets and with picking and transportation.

The Glenwood Farmers Market is located in the Rite-Aid parking lot on Saturdays from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. When visiting the market homemade breads, Peach Valley apricots, green beans, honey, organic jams and tasty barbecue sandwiches are just a few of the additional finds to be enjoyed.
