Tour Our Montana Vegetable Garden

A vegetable garden can be the perfect way to get your hands dirty, reconnect with the earth, and finally reap the benefits of fresh produce. It’s also a great way to get friends and family involved and make it a fun, social outing to take care of.

Suppose you’ve got an acre or even a city lot to grow your food. Congratulations! You’ll need to check out our comprehensive guide to starting your vegetable garden, so check that too. But even if you’re not ready to start from scratch, a vegetable garden is an easy way to start growing fresh produce in your home and reap the benefits of eating more plant-based foods. T

For those who can’t quite muster the time or energy to start a garden, you may want to consider a few easy ways you can add more products to your diet without putting in much work at all. Almost every town in the U.S. has at least one local food bank and several. These are great resources for anyone looking for fresh produce that’s not grown on a large commercial scale.

And of course, there’s always the option of buying it! It may take some planning, but we’ve got you covered with weekly farm shares that let you buy only what is in season and delivered directly to your door over several weeks or months. The best part is that all of this is done organically and on your schedule, so you’ll end up with fresh produce from spring through fall while expanding your knowledge of where your food comes from.

Even if you live in town or city limits, there are places where farmers’ markets also sell some locally grown produce right off the farm, like Pick It’s Organic Farm Markets, which offers local organic fruits, veggies, and herbs right across our state border in Manitoba Canada. If there’s time before the market opens (and if someone makes it out to visit their booth), they can pick berries while they’re still in season.
