About

We’re Tim and Nancy Bass and we’re from a place called Momeyer, a small town in Nash County, North Carolina.    Our farm has been in Tim’s family for nearly 200 years.  Prior to our marriage in 1990, Tim was making a fair living by growing tobacco, soybeans, cotton, and a few chickens.  With the changing times, we decided we needed to change the emphasis of the farming operation.

In 1992, an opportunity arose to be a part of a grass roots effort to start a farmers market in Nash County.  For the first year of the market, we began growing every local, southern, garden vegetable to sell at the newly established Nash Area Farmers Market.  Realizing the need for an early and consistent tomato grower to help ”grow the market”, we decided to give it a try.  We researched, studied, and learned to grow greenhouse tomatoes in 1993.

Now seventeen years later, we have found a few more opportunities to market our tomatoes and have been able to increase the size of our operation.  We are now a part of three farmers markets as well as a few wholesale outlets.  What we do has enabled us to stay on the farm and enjoy the lifestyle that only a farmer can appreciate.
