Members are learning to garden and in turn are able to take home organic produce. Also listed as a sideline to this article are the many CSA’s available up & down the Wastach Front. Check out the article and see Adam’s Heirlooms listed at the top of the list.
10/02/12 – Big Budah talks with Adam’s Heirlooms about the Downtown Tuesday Market on Channel 13 Fox’s Good Day Utah. Big Budah was impressed with the uniqueness of Adam’s produce, especially the round carrots and the chocolate cherry tomatoes. Even though Big Budah doesn’t like tomatoes. They bantered about the name of the “Lazy Housewife” Green Beans – the first green beans in the 1880s to be stringless. Big Budah decided to call them “husband beans”. Adam and Budah had a great time talking about our produce and promoting the Downtown Tuesday market – the market runs till the end of October.

6/29/12 — Adam’s Heirlooms is featured in a Utah Story Article – “Why Community Supported Agriculture is Great for Utah Farmers”by Connie Lewis. “Some of the the farmers are very innovative. Adam and Dianna Diehl run Adam’s Heirlooms out of Midvale. They have a backyard garden where they plant tomatoes, garlic, eggplant, potatoes, onions and greens. Since their space is limited, they also use three other backyard gardens near their home. In exchange for using the gardens they offer the homeowners a share and do cleanup and improvements to the space they are using. With limited space they do what Adam calls, “edible landscaping.” Almost everything in their yard produces food as well as being aesthetically pleasing. They use strictly heirloom plants, all dating from before 1900, and their love of gardening grew out of a love for food history. This is their first year participating as producers, but Dianna said, We are loving it.” You can read the entire article by clicking the link above.

2/15/12 — It’s planting time already!! We have tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, basil, and onions starting in our nursery.
