The Bonanno Family Farm
Growing Since 1910
Growing for over 100 Years!
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.
Our greenhouse is open to the public from April – October. We have flowering annuals, vegetable transplants, beautiful hanging baskets and giant tomato plants that make perfect additions to your porch!
After Thanksgiving, our greenhouses will be filled with Christmas trees and all the decorations.
As well as our greenhouse plants, we grow potted tulips and fall mums for both retail and wholesale.
Open May – Thanksgiving
As well as our own produce we also carry Carolyn’s Farm Kitchen baking mixes, Valicenti Farms pasta and sauces, Shaw Farm ice cream and milk, Carlson Orchards lemonade and cider and lots of local artisan products.We are always adding new things to our shelves and offer fresh cut flowers and gifts.
Benefits of Being a CSA Shareholder
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.
We grow a great diversity of vegetables which will be part of your CSA subscription. These include leaf lettuce, rhubarb, kale, beets, pepper, tomato, eggplant, summer squash, zucchini, leeks, and many leafy greens.
