Tomotts Cajun Farm
Tomayto, Tomahto, Tomott’s Cajun Farm! We’re so excited to have Tomott’s back at market, providing us with a bounty of hydroponically grown tomato post-season products and farm-fresh chicken and duck eggs. Greg and Ann Sanamo, along with their son Kelly and his wife Rachel, are the owners of the farm that operates out of Larose, Louisiana. They are proud to grow everything pesticide-free: Ann says, “we know it because we grow it!” While tomatoes are their specialty, they also grow eggplant, cucumbers, citrus, and other veggies as well as create a variety of tomato products like salsa, spaghetti sauce, and tomato jam.
