Homer Hilltop Farm sells boxes of organically grown vegetables weekly from late May through October from the hills above Homer, Alaska. Our boxes consist of 10-12 items each week, starting with variety of greens in the spring and expanding into a wide range of vegetables by mid-June. For a full list of vegetable box ingredients, take a closer look at our projected boxes for 2016 here.
Owner and operator Carey Restino, along with her 12-year-old son Liam and 8-year-old daughter Théa started farming their land 5 miles above Homer on Diamond Ridge 10 years ago and have gradually expanded their operation each year. In 2012, they put up a 2,100-square-foot high tunnel to further enhance the many plastic-covered hoop houses already in operation. The following year, the farm began its first foray into commercial sales, growing its customer base each year. In 2015, the farm fed 15-20 Homer families each week, as well as themselves, their farm helpers and many guests.
The goal of Homer Hilltop Farm is to produce highly nutritious vegetables at a reasonable cost for anyone in the community while maintaining a quality of life that allows us to enjoy Alaska’s amazing summers.
We are currently planning for the 2016 season, and welcome any inquiries and orders via email.
