    a farm where vegetables are grown for market


  1. truck farm

    A market garden is the relatively small-scale production of fruits, vegetables and flowers as cash crops, frequently sold directly to consumers and restaurants. The diversity of crops grown on a small area of land, typically from under 0.40 hectares (4,000 m2; 1 acre) to some hectares (a few acres), or sometimes in greenhouses, distinguishes it from other types of farming. A market garden is sometimes called a truck farm.A market garden is a business that provides a wide range and steady supply of fresh produce through the local growing season. Unlike large, industrial farms, which practice monoculture and mechanization, many different crops and varieties are grown and more manual labour and gardening techniques are used. The small output requires selling through such local fresh produce outlets as on-farm stands, farmers' markets, community-supported agriculture subscriptions, restaurants and independent produce stores. Market gardening and orchard farming are closely related to horticulture, which concerns the growing of fruits and vegetables.


  1. truck farm

    A truck farm is a small commercial farm that cultivates fruits, vegetables, or flowers for direct sale to consumers, often at local fresh markets, farmer's markets, or restaurants rather than for wholesaling to larger markets or processors. The term "truck" in this case refers to the old meaning of the word related to bartering or exchange.
