The name Vesterfield was inspired by Tim's grandfather, Sylvester Mullis, who was known as "Vester" by friends and family. Vester and Pauline moved to this land on January 2, 1940. They raised their 10 children there in a time where there was no such thing as going to the grocery store—they grew everything they needed to survive. Today, the farm is operated by Tim, Kaye, and Timmy Smith, who are committed to growing vegetables with great taste and high nutritional value. Although the soil has been used for almost 80 years, its health is maintained by composting, crop rotation, and cover-cropping, making Vesterfield Farms a sustainable source for naturally grown and 100% GMO free produce.
