In 1997, Tyler and Karla purchased a beautiful piece of farmland in Little Compton, Rhode Island. Since farming has been in Tyler’s blood for generations, we jumped at the opportunity to follow our passion of growing fruits, vegetables and flowers for our local community.
Tyler’s first strawberry crop was ready to be picked, so Karla decided to sell the beautiful berries on a picnic table on their front lawn. As locals and summer visitors soon discovered our farm fresh berries, Tyler began growing a variety of vegetables for our customers. As what started as a small wholesale potato business, the farm soon grew into a diversified wholesale and retail business with the help of their three daughters. The lawn became too small for our fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers and our retail farm stand opened in fall 2006, just in time for our first apple crop! Now, our products can be found at grocery stores throughout New England and at our retail stand, located at 260 West Main Road in Little Compton.
From planting to picking, Young Family Farm is in operation from March through November. The retail stand door opens the beginning of May until Thanksgiving. During these months, customers enjoy our farm fresh annuals, perennials, fruits, vegetables and various events.
From our family to yours, we hope to see you soon!
