I made a discovery a few days ago. Off Chinden, just west of Ten Mile, turn Right after the large sign that reads “Wagner Farms.”
It’s a nice long stretch of gravel driveway which ends at a large barn filled with loads of fresh and local fruit and vegetables; much of which are grown on the family farm.
As soon as you step out of your car, you are greeted by two very sweet dogs, there are three dogs total I found out, one is blind and was lounging in the grass while I was there (Viper, Squirt and Boo).
Debi (the Owner) has the barn decked out floor to ceiling with an assortment of rustic antiques. I was surprised at the large variety of fruit and vegetables the farm had to offer. Watermelons, various berries, potatoes, corn, eggplant, burpless cucumber (didn’t know there was such a thing!), tomatoes, peaches, etc…
I tried the dark and light green zucchini and they were awesome! I did especially like the light zucchini which Debbi recommended. Perfectly ripened and not a hint of bitterness.
Most of the produce is Idaho grown, sun ripened and maybe even picked that day! Prices were reasonable.
I purchased at least 10 zucchini, 3 huge tomatoes, a bag of cherries and a pound of green beans. Total $13. Beat that Walmart! You don’t have to be wealthy to enjoy local, quality food.
My husband sold Debi her Verizon phone. She kept talking about how nice he was and how he made her feel like she wasn’t “just a number.” (I have a good man with a good heart).
I guess they got to talking about her farm and that’s how I found out about it. They do have a website too: www.WagnerProduce.com.
Debi – I really enjoyed visiting the farm and thanks for letting me take the pictures!
