DeCastro Farms is a family owned and operated local garden and produce center in Portsmouth, RI.


Winfield and Ruth DeCastro started the farm stand in 1961, selling vegetables that they grew on their 7 acres. They passed on their knowledge and passion for farming to their three sons, Stephen, Tom, and Rich, who continued the tradition and expanded the stand into its current location on East Main Road. The DeCastro family now grows over 100 acres of food and provides Rhode Island with their very own fresh native produce and flowers.

DeCastro's is locally famous for their straight-from-the-field, daily picked corn. They also grow their own string beans, tomatoes, cabbage, summer squash and cucumbers, among other vegetables. As a retail provider, DeCastro's provides their produce to local grocery stores on Aquidneck Island, including Shaw's, Stop & Shop, and Clements Marketplace.

 
 
 
 

OUR PRODUCTS


Our goal here at DeCastro's is to be a locally conscious and sustained business. 100% of our products come from right here in Rhode Island. We grow most of our vegetables and produce on our farm, and everything else we order comes from local RI businesses.

Flowers

Whether you are looking for a special gift, or just want to add beauty to your garden, we have what you need! In the spring, our greenhouses are full of annuals and perennials, hanging flowers, and impatiens; fall brings mums, and we carry poinsettias in the winter.
