Selected varieties are available for purchase at the North Plain Farm store on Rt. 41 near the Great Barrington/Housatonic border from dawn til dusk, self-serve (venmo, paypal, cash and checks accepted).
Immediately below are some of our most popular mixed variety 4-packs for quick ordering. These mixed packs give home gardeners maximum diversity with varieties in a small space--ie you don't have to buy four different 6-packs in order to try four different kinds of tomatoes.
These mixed packs are designed to represent a diversity of color, taste, and when possible, maturity time, so that you'll always have something beautiful to look at and something to look forward to as the season unfolds.
