A little about The Local Patch
This is our third year running our own farming business. We have lived and worked on organic family farms in Maine, managed chicken and pigs in Massachusetts and gardened while living in Boston. Our market garden occupies two fields on Wapping Road where we share the land with the esteemed cows of Aquidneck Farms. We live close by in Middletown. Our passion for farming comes from our love of cooking with fresh ingredients, and knowing we're feeding our family the healthiest things. We love sharing recipes with our market shoppers and CSA members. Andrew, a native Rhode Islander and Amy, raised in Massachusetts are thrilled to put down roots here with family close by.

The Local Patch is a market garden focused on growing the highest quality produce using sustainable practices. Healthy, strong, productive plants come from management practices that place an emphasis on soil health. We feed the soil a balance of organic nutrients and compost and in turn, the the soil feeds the crops.

We have a growing CSA, a model we feel passionate about. We love connecting our community to their food and being able to share an appreciation for seasonal cooking and eating.

You can find the Local Patch at the Aquidneck Grower's Market on Saturday mornings at Newport Vineyards through the summer. If you're lucky, (and fast) you'll catch one year old Farmer Frankie, running around learning about the family business!
