With a love for plants and natural systems, Chris Covelli began farming in 1993, focusing on distinctive vegetables. His dream was to put Grandma Covelli’s spaghetti sauce in a jar for all to enjoy. Today, Tomato Mountain is a 12-acre farm with its own processing kitchen that was built with the help of a $12,000 grant from Frontera Foundation. “We do everything from planting the seed to putting the lid on the jar,” says Chris. Salsas, preserves, soup, Bloody Mary mix and, of course, pasta sauce are the main products and are bottled on-farm only when the ingredients are in season. In addition, Tomato Mountain sells vegetable and herb starter plants in May and, beginning in July, features Sun Gold cherry tomatoes and a dozen or so other varieties of fresh tomatoes, including heirlooms and selected hybrids. “We focus on the highest quality, best flavor, and customer service/education.” Chris says. The same emphasis applies to the farm’s home delivery CSA.
