County Bounty available at Sisson’s Produce Stand

It’s spring and it’s time for Westmoreland County’s bountiful harvest of fruits, vegetables and herbs to begin appearing. And there is no better place to see and taste that bounty than at Sisson’s Produce Stand in Montross which has recently opened for the season.
The produce stand, operated by Gary and Carolyn Sisson, is a product of Level Green Farm, a Westmoreland County Century Farm that has been operated by Gary Sisson’s family since 1809.

“Local strawberries will be available this week,” said Carolyn Sisson. “And then we will have more and more local produce coming as the weather warms, including sweet corn, tomatoes, cantaloupes and watermelons.”

While waiting for the fresh local fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers to make their appearance, Sisson’s Produce Stand, which is located on Route 3, is providing a wide variety of produce grown in the southeast.

The produce stand opened in mid-April and is already brimming with spring onions, collard greens, asparagus, green beans, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, cabbage and nine varieties of Virginia apples. Also on sale are honey, cider and a wide selection of jams and preserves from peach butter to Damson plum preserves.

“We opened the stand about 30 years ago to help sell our local produce,” said Carolyn. “Gary and I have been doing this since high school. It’s hard work, but very rewarding.”

Carolyn and Gary have three children who over the years have helped with the farm and the produce stand.
Green Level Farm, which is 650 acres and grows grains as well as produce, will provide more bounty than can be sold at the stand. So, Gary and Carolyn also set up weekly operations at five farmer’s markets in the Northern Neck and four farmer’s markets in Northern Virginia.

Janice Jenkins of Montross, who has been working at Sisson’s Produce Stand for 10 years, said “Our local sweet corn is probably our most popular item, along with fresh tomatoes.” Strawberries and asparagus are the first local crops available, but a wide array of other fruits and vegetables is right behind.

The Sisson’s Produce Stand is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. and will stay open until the end of November. Thanks to the hard work of Gary, Carolyn and their employees, Sisson’s has been voted the #1 Produce Stand in the Northern Neck.
