Visit to Morning Glory Farm
Produce doesn’t get more local—or fresh—than it is from Robert Boone’s backyard. Earlier this week, members of the Hollywood Farmers Market Board of Directors visited Robert’s small, yet beautiful, Morning Glory Farm, situated right here in North College Park. Since he started being a farmer in earnest—just a few years ago—he’s had many successful crops, including flowers, peas, corn, squash, tomatoes, and grapes, to name a few. His three bee hives have produced dozens of bottles of pure honey—and all of them “flew off the shelf” within an hour of the Hollywood Farmers Market opening day! Be sure to visit Robert’s table this Saturday for the most local, fresh produce in the market. See farm photos at our Facebook page
