Since 1981, Theis Farm Market has been providing high quality, exceptionally great tasting local produce. Family owned and operated, they take pride in their work and are constantly striving to meet new demands by delivering even better tasting produce and higher quality products. They started out with a wagon by the road full of vegetables. Greenhouses came as a necessity for the starting of our field plants. They decided to do a few flowers for fun and that quickly turned into the place to go for top quality beautiful bedding plants, including Barb's original mixed planters and baskets. Now they have bedding and vegetable plants starting in the spring following through to summer with ripe tasty vegetables and into the fall for pumpkins, squash, gourds and all your other fall decorations. They always carry fresh eggs, homegrown popcorn, honey from the bees on their farm, syrups and jams from slack's.
