Greenbank Farm, currently known for its retail stores, pies and dog park, is getting back to its roots with some good, old-fashioned traditional farming.
The fertile soil is being painstakingly plowed and sifted through by a farming family who think Greenbank Farm can use a good pop of color.
“Finally, some agriculture is going to come back to Greenbank,” Kim Gruetter said.
The farm, Salty Acres, consists of Kim and her husband Paul Gruetter, their daughter Tonneli and her husband John Loughman. The team has been working for the past few months to establish what will be primarily a flower farm at Greenbank.
Their crop of dahlias, blue cornflower, daisies, roses, peonies and more will be in high bloom by June, Tonneli said.
“It’ll be a selfie hotspot by July,” she said.
