When does the season begin?

        

The season begins in mid to late June weather depending and continues for 20 weeks or until the first killing frost. We farm by the grace of God and at the mercy of Mother Nature.

 

What can I expect to receive each week?

 

Here are some familiar examples of what you would typically

expect. We are also going grow some gourmet varieties of your old favorites along with some specialty items you may never have heard of. As the season begins you can expect cool weather crops such as radishes, beets, spinach green and red leaf lettuce, romaine, head and bib lettuce and green onions. In the following few weeks cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower. As the weather warms through summer and the crops mature with tomatoes, peppers and beans …… Fall season corn, popcorn, potatoes, onions, melons and squash.

 

You may call us at: (716) 940-1386 with any questions you might have.

 

How much will I receive? Will a share supply my family all of our vegetable needs?

 

A typical share is intended for 2 adults and two children

(depending on how much they like vegetables)! It is unlikely a CSA will

provide all of your produce needs, especially early in the season and some items can not be grown locally (avocados for example).

 

 

Do I have to work on the farm?

 

No, but you are more than welcome to try your hand at hoeing or just drop by to visit the farm and see where your veggies come from. Please, just give us a call to let us know.
