Peaches, Tomatoes, and Other Vegetables

A variety of tomatoes, including slicers, green tomatoes, heirlooms, romas and grape tomatoes, are  grown at J. Durbin Farms. Planting tomatoes at different intervals during the season gives J. Durbin Farms the opportunity to harvest tomatoes June thru November.

Our Boss and Mentor , Jimmy Durbin, still on watch over all daily planning and jobs. Always looking for a better way to get the best out of all of us and the farm.
