History

In 1807 Thomas and Martha Shaw, farmers of Quaker ancestry, immigrated to Clermont County from Bucks County, PA.

In 1952, the family's first sweet corn was raised and sold at the Farmer's Market located at Second and Main Street in Cincinnati, Ohio. The corn was picked every day, early in the morning. Since the market didn't open up until 5 PM, customers passing by the loaded truck would stop and want to buy corn before it was taken to market. Eventually, the family decided to open a market at home because of the high demand for fresh produce.

The Shaw's first stand consisted of a few hamper baskets with a board across the top where the vegetables were placed, and the corn was placed in bushel baskets beside the table.

The first pumpkins were raised between the rows of corn. The pumpkins were picked and placed in a pile in the front yard. These were also sold to customers who were passing by. The money earned was given to the children to spend on their vacations.
