Stony Crest Urban Farm, located in the Marlborough neighborhood less than 5 miles from the market, began as a gardening hobby for owners Rodger Kube and Diane Hershberger. Diane began selling excess tomatoes and flowers from their home garden plots at farmer’s markets 5 years ago. They now grow a wide array of vegetables on nearly 2.5 acres incorporating portions of their 7-acre property named Stony Crest and several nearby lots. Rodger and Diane especially love to grow heirloom tomatoes and he fancies himself a “Tomato Whisperer”. Through the use of high tunnels and greenhouses, they produce food in all four season. The 2014 season is Rodger and Diane’s fourth year at the Brookside Market.
