About the Farm

The Beinlich family has owned and farmed their Monongahela property since 1967, but it wasn’t originally a commercial farm. That changed in 1984 when owner Ron Beinlich lost his job as an engineer. Lucky for us, instead of returning to the steel industry, he decided to farm full-time. With that, Beinlich Beef and Berry Farm was born. The farm specialized in cattle at first, but over the years the crop lineup expanded and the family eventually changed the name to Triple B Farm. Today, Ron, his wife Carolyn, their son Bill and his wife Sue work the 380-acre farm, oversee its on-site market and host several annual festivals.

Farm Fresh Tip

“Refrigerating a tomato actually causes it to break down, negatively affecting the flavor and texture. We store our tomatoes in a cool area, but never in a refrigerator.” – Bill Beinlich

HOW TO STORE: TOMATOES

We love nothing more than fresh-picked, ripe tomatoes, but they are delicate. How you store them greatly affects their flavor and shelf-life. Here’s what you can do to retain the fresh and delicious flavor of local tomatoes:

Store fresh tomatoes on the counter, not in the fridge. Eat them within two or three days of purchase.

  • Freeze tomatoes for up to 2 months. Tomatoes can be frozen whole, sliced or pureed for use in cooked-tomato recipes.
  • Try canning them for long-term storage.
