Tomato shopper
Tomato Barn

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, and tomato grower Steve Funk says the same holds true for Washington Boro tomatoes in Lancaster County.

Funk, a third-generation grower who raises 10,000 plants annually, sells Jet Star and Sunbright varieties at the Tomato Barn, his roadside stand along Route 999 in Washington Boro.

"We grow Washington Boro tomatoes for flavor, not looks,’’ Funk says, referring to grocery store tomatoes that often look red and firm but lack taste. Funk was born and raised in Washington Boro and started farming there when he "was a boy of about 8 or 9 years."

"Ta-ma-duhs," as Funk calls them, have been grown commercially in Washington Boro since the 1930s. The secret to the fl avor of Washington Boro tomatoes, Funk says, is the rich alluvial soil deposited along the banks of the Susquehanna River.

“My grandfather farmed on the river. Back then, they grew tobacco, tomatoes and watermelon. It was the tomatoes that tasted best. Real sweet," Funk says.

And, it’s a taste that keeps them coming back for more. Every summer, Funk has clients who come from as far away as New Jersey, Pittsburgh and Virginia for a taste of a true one of a kind.

Dutch Tomatoes
Pennsylvania Dutch Tomatoes
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 6 firm red tomatoes
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Cut tomatoes into thick slices. Dip in flour mixed with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with half the brown sugar. Heat butter in a large skillet. Add tomatoes and cook slowly. Turn once and sprinkle rest of brown sugar. When tomatoes are tender, pour cream and cook until it thickens.

Myers Century Farm

The secret to successful farming is a family-based core, like the one found at the Myers family farm in Willow Street, Lancaster County.

Recipients of the 2001 Century Farm award, the Myers family has been plowing the earth on 265 acres for six generations.

“Everybody does something,” matriarch Nancy Myers says. “We all pitch in. It’s just expected.”

Whether it is sowing hundreds of seed varieties in basement starter flats every spring, transplanting seedlings, harvesting, or marketing watermelons, cantaloupe, and sweet corn at the summer farm market produce stand, the Myers family works together.

“That way, it never seems as hard. It’s teamwork and we have fun,” says daughter-in-law Jane.

Two-thirds of the Myers’ crops are sold locally to grocery stores, universities, and retirement communities. About one-third of their harvest is sold at the Myers Produce Stand, along Route 741, where sunflowers, zinnias, and dahlias augment the vegetable crops.

“Our customers love having food that’s farm fresh,” patriarch Frank Myers says. “There is a demand for that kind of goodness.”

Self Serve
Honor Boxes

Honor boxes are a long-standing tradition at the many roadside produce stands. Some farming families are so busy they rely on self-serve honor boxes, usually a slotted wooden or metal box. Customers are trusted to complete their purchase by slipping the appropriate amount into the honor box slot. In today’s world, honor boxes may seem a little far-fetched. But it’s a part of our farming tradition that works.
