The next vendor is the Farmers Market Series is Gundermann Acres! I am so excited to feature them! When I think of Farmers Markets, I think of produce. If you think that too, then look no further!
Garrett and Stacie Gundermann own Gundermann Acres. Garrett’s grandparents, Walter and Dorothy Gundermann, founded Peachland, a 90-acre peach orchard, in Glen Flora, Tx. In the mid-1990’s, Garrett’s parents, Joan and Walter, gave the farm a little makeover and decided to grow other fruits and vegetables. Thus, Gundermann Farms was born.
And as history tends to repeat itself, now Garrett took over and renamed it to Gundermann Acres!
Gundermann Acres grows and produces a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. This include strawberries, tomatoes, watermelons, zucchinni, pinto beans, green beans, and even more! You can view the full listing here.
One of the greatest features of Gundermann Acres is their ability to grow produce outside of it’s natural season. How do they do it?
They grow things hydroponically in their greenhouse.
This means they grow their plants without soil. With hydroponics, the plants are grown in an inert growing medium. They also have a perfectly balanced, pH adjusted, nutrient solution that is delivered to the roots in a highly soluble form.
They grow tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, lettuce, squash/zucchini, bell peppers, strawberries, and an assortment of herbs hydroponically. So if you are looking for fresh, delicious produce all year round, look no further than Gundermann Acres.
Nothing is more satisfying that taking photos of gorgeous fruits and vegetables. Oh….except eating them!
Don’t be shy! Come check Gundermann Acres out this Saturday! They will be at the Energy Corridor Farmers Market Saturdays from 9am-1pm. You can also visit their Facebook page! They have tons of additional information on their website as well.
