• Honey Boat Delicata

    The sweetest and most dependable delicata squash we have trialed. Strong plants produce beautiful copper and green striped fruit. The superior sweetness is retained in storage making for delicious meals throughout the winter. Bred by Dr. James Baggett at Oregon State University.
  • A genepool of heirlooms selected for exceptional flavor and texture! Beauty, vigor and unbelievable flavor. Our former interns have told us about having "squash withdrawls" after leaving the farm.  Over the last 5 years we allowed a diverse group of winter squashes from a host of diverse parents to flower together. Each fall we collect the most beautiful specimens, ranging from perfect specimens of varieties such as Oregon Homestead Sweet meat to new variations such as a Sweet Meat x Navajo x Buttercup tri-cross. The diversity and breeding potential is amazing and flavor divine. The diversity has created a hybrid swarm with incredible vigor. Seeds are of this years collection.
  • Big Blossom Grex

    Extra large squash blossoms and lots of them! With added interest from chefs and market customers we set out to make a better maxima winter squash bred specifically for the production of these tasty treats. We focused the breeding on selecting plants that produce more male blossoms with increased size.  Chefs love the large size because they can put fewer on a plate lowering the plate cost and keeping the customer happy. We sell hundreds of these a week for up to a dollar each, making it one of the most profitable crops on the farm! We pick in the late morning when blossoms are dry but before bugs move in.
  • "Best of Buttercup"  a culinary selected grex of the various ways to be a buttercup maxima winter squash. The Goal of  our "Best of Buttercup" breeding is to create a small sized, buttercup shaped grex(latin for flock) of genetics with incredible flavor and superior vigor and yield. Imagine buttercups in all shades of colors with one thing in common.... AMAZING FLAVOR! With all of the genetic diversity in this hybrid swarm you can expect extreme growth and production that you rarely see in typical inbred heirlooms or commercial hybrid seed production. "Best of Buttercup" is a very special seed that we are offering and will only have a small amount available in 2020! Expect some variability as non-buttercup genetics still exist in the population. Enjoy!
