Customers streamed in and out of Dimond Hill Farm in Concord on Tuesday afternoon. Jane Presby, owner and seventh-generation farmer at Dimond Hill, said that the farm is transitioning into its fall crops; squash and pumpkins will be ready within the next two weeks. But until then, customers have plenty of produce – such as sweet corn, tomatoes, garlic and sweet red onions – and products from regional sellers – such as gluten-free products, organic granola, organic milk and handmade fresh mozzarella – to choose from. “My main mission is to support small businesses,” Crosby said. “It’s just healthy, healthy food.”
