Providing Farmers and Gardeners with Grafted Tomato Starts for Higher Yield Potential


Farm: Greener Visions Nursery
Operators: Walter Tysinger and Randy Plante
Production: Organic vegetables, fruits, and flowers
Markets: Farmer’s markets
Location: Chapel Hill, Orange County, NC
 
Greener Visions Nursery renovated an old greenhouse for the production of organic grafted tomato “starts” to sell to customers and to farmers at the Carrboro Farmer’s Market. Profitability should be strong as grafted tomato starts are new to the area and are showing yields averaging 30% better which is a good for backyard gardeners and farmers alike.
