Growing for over 100 Years!

In 2022, we celebrate our 113th growing year. Started by Clementi Bonanno in 1910 on 100 acres along the Merrimack River, “The Bonanno Family Farm” has had many faces over the years. The farm has been involved in dairy, swine, vegetable, and flower production. It is hard to believe that prior to World War II, over 4000 pigs lived on the property.

Currently, Pleasant Valley Gardens is operated by Richard Bonanno (4th generation), his wife LuAnne Bonanno, daughter Heather Bonanno-Baker (5th generation), and father Angelo Bonanno (3rd generation). We now own about 35 acres and lease another 15 acres at the former DeLucia Farm, now owned by daughter Cara and her husband Mike Griffin also in Methuen. Vegetables and flowers are produced for wholesale markets which include Market Basket and many local farms in the area, retail at our farm stand, greenhouses, and local farmers markets, and also for our own CSA.

Benefits of Being a CSA Shareholder

CSA shareholders receive a portion of the farm’s harvest weekly from mid June through October. Members receive the freshest, highest quality produce available at near wholesale cost.

Fresh locally grown vegetables, harvested at their peak of nutritional value.

Each growing season brings unique challenges. Occasionally a crop may fail due to conditions beyond our control. Our goal is to provide you with abundance throughout the growing season by growing a variety of produce.
