The 2016 Produce Sales Season at Ed Lester Farms has come to an end. The Lester family would like to thank all our great customers who shop with us and have supported us so well for almost five decades. We hope to see each and every one of you in late May of 2017 when a new harvest begins.
Here on the farm we will catch our breath and then turn our attention to the cotton harvest which is now underway.
You may be reading this as our Newsletter to which you subscribed. This will be the final update for this season but as the new season approaches in May, we will again keep you informed as to the progress of the 2017 crops. You will not have to subscribe again for next season.
But if you have not subscribed and would like to just enter your email address in the box to the right and click GO. Once subscribed you will receive an Update about once a week with information about our different crops as they come into harvest. These updates will begin in early May of 2017.
If you have any questions or comments on any farm related subjects please feel free to contact us anytime. We would love to hear from you.
Thanks again from Ed and Lisa Lester, Thomas, Jay and all our dedicated staff that work the long, hard hours to bring you the Best Things of Summer!
Ed Lester Farms is an outdoor farmer’s market located right on the bank of the west bank of the Red River. Under the shade of our stately grand oak you will feel the cool summer breeze as you peruse through our beautiful selection of fresh picked fruits and vegetables. All produce is displayed in “self serve” fashion.
Produce arrives from the fields beginning around 8 am and typically remains in supply until closing time at 5 pm.
Because of our relationship with Mother Nature, our selection of crops changes over the summer season. Cooler season crops such as lettuce and broccoli will give way to warmer season crops like okra, melons, and purple hull peas.
You may want to bring an ice chest to better transport any shelled peas or beans you purchase. But you will not need to bring any other type of containers or baskets.
Need large quantities? No problem. Our staff is happy to help you with all your purchases.
We accept checks, Louisiana Purchase cards and Senior Citizens Nutrition Program Coupons as well as all major credit cards.
