Baby C Farm is a small producer of heirloom vegetable, melon and herb plant starts based in East Fallowfield Township. If you’ve been to the Kennett Farmer’s Market this season, you cannot have missed the smiles and gurglings of the Layton family’s newest production, baby Connor. Following his birth, they became truly conscious of the benefits of local and natural foods. Gardening started out as just a hobby and then turned into a passion.
They fell in love with garden fresh vegetables, in particular with heirloom varieties including tomatoes, peppers, peas, beans, eggplants, and lettuces. Baby C Farm now has 34 different heirloom starter plants, which are great for the home gardener or professionals. All of the Baby C Farm plants are grown in a controlled environment in organic soil and are pesticide-free. Three of the plant starts (Tennis Ball lettuce, Grandpa Admire lettuce, Cherokee Purple tomatoes) are on the Slow Food USA Ark of Taste list.
In addition, Amanda Layton creates hand knit garments, size infant through adult, including hats, scarves, neck warmers, and mittens. Many of their products can also be purchased on their

BabyCFarm website. Drop by to visit them at the Market on Friday.
