Shooting Star Farm is located on the North side of Hailey a one-acre cornucopia of vegetables, including lettuce, tomatoes, squash, pea shoots, kale, Swiss chard, spinach, carrots, and radishes, plus a small house for their family of four. Carol Murphy and husband Dan (who passed away in 2015) have been growing delectable vegetables for more than ten years, and they’ve cultivated their soil by enriching it with organic compost. They have never applied a single chemical to our soil or plants; no pesticides, no herbicides, no insecticides. Simply sun, soil, seed, water and hands; the way food was meant to be grown. Shooting Star Farm is particularly known for delicious and abundant greens especially their kale, my personal favorite and an enviable variety of tomatoes. The local chefs and Farmers Market customers eagerly await their first tomato crop. The cool nights at 5400 feet ensure that our lettuce is mild and tasty all summer, and our greenhouses made from reclaimed lumber harbor our flavorful tomatoes. You may also be lucky enough to score some wild morel mushrooms at Dan’s booth, he heads out to the wild country to pick them and often has any for sale. But don’t delay, they sell out fast.
Dan and Carol anticipate another great growing season, and we hope you will enjoy our vegetables as much as we enjoy growing them.
