Business Spotlight: Greenfield's Forever, LLC
At 236 Wilton Rd., there is a very big farm run by a very tall, longtime resident of Greenfield named Tabor Ellsworth. His successful no-spray, organic farm has grown in recent years and has become a Greenfield staple.
This week, Greenfield’s Forever announced to come now to pick the last variety of raspberries for the year, but blueberry picking is just around the bend. One can stop by the rustic farmhouse’s front porch to pick up jarred products and picked berries, or feel free to find Tabor himself to locate what you are after. Some products are even found at Hannaford and other local retailers. You can pick up his products at the Greenfield and Middle Grove Farmer’s Market each Friday through September 8 from 4-7 p.m.
Greenfield’s Forever features Farmer T’s brand of pickles, pickled garlic, pickled beans, jams and fruit sauces. In addition, Tabor started Food Union Farms, an association that helps other organic farms sell fruit and vegetables.
Greenfield’s Forever started in 2009 with two acres of fruit and vegetables for its processing business. It has grown today to eight acres. In addition to its vegetables used in processing (like asparagus and cucumbers), the farm grows raspberries, blueberries, apples, pears, plums, currants, juneberries and gooseberries. The farmhouse onsite was built in 1792 by the Chronkhite family, who relocated to Greenfield from Dutchess County when they were given 1,000 acres to settle on.
As you can see in the photos below, Greenfield Deputy Supervisor Rick Capasso, works part-time on the farm.
