Please, note with all this rain some vegetables will not hold as long as they normally would. So please use them up. You will want to use up the cucumbers first. You can also see my freezing and preserving tips at the bottom of this email.


We are planning to have our annual Fall Farm Festival! Saturday, September 4th. 11:30 am - 3:00 pm 145 Garcia Lane, Leeds NY 12451

It is a great day to come to the farm and see how your vegetables are grown, meet your farmers, walk the fields and enjoy a hayride. We have the grill hot and will have pulled pork, vegetarian chili as well as grilled Sweet Corn. We will also provide fresh fruit, water, and hot coffee. In the past, we had big pot luck but we will not be offering this due to covid, we feel it's best for everyone to please bring their own sides if you would like to go with the BBQ offerings. (just for your family) Also, please bring your table settings (plate, forks, napkins) We will have our pick your own flower patch available that day. Bring a pair of scissors and enjoy the bounty of the flower garden. We will follow the most current CDC guidelines the day of the event.
