Produce Grows in Brighton

brought to you by Brighton Shares the Harvest and City of Brighton

Here comes the harvest!
As a city rooted in Agriculture, Brighton has been proud of its farming community from the beginning. Residents are well aware of Brighton’s impressive open space (Fifty percent of its land mass is not developed!), but what residents may not be aware of is their access to local produce stands right here in their own backyard.

To bring awareness to Brighton’s local produce, the City of Brighton and nonprofit Brighton Shares The Harvest, have joined forces to educate the community and invite them to “Grow Healthy With Brighton.”

Grow Healthy With Brighton
How much do you know about the people who grow the food you buy? What do you know about the soil it grows in, and the people who plant and handle the food you serve to your family? The only thing better than eating fresh, locally grown produce is knowing the people who are growing it for you, and maybe growing some of your own.

To help residents Grow Healthy With Brighton, we’ve gathered this information that shows where and what you can get at Berry Patch Farms, Lulu’s Farm, the Bromley Farm and Palizzi Farm. This month, we encourage residents to visit any or all of these stands and see for themselves how Produce Grows in Brighton!

NOTE: The Bromley Farm is not an open farm stand yet. The hours for the other farm stands may vary as the season goes on and they have more fresh produce available.
