There’s nothing old about Tim Noxon and Vicki Emlaw’s attitude to heirloom organic vegetables. Besides growing and selling the produce at a roadside stand, they run a Community Shared Agriculture program, have an heirloom seedling sale and supply restaurants. All this from eight-and-a-half acres of vegetables and four acres of gardens. Old is new again with the increased interest in heirloom produce. Business is good and growing with profits quadrupling between 2004 and 2007.
