For pre-ordering, please see information and links below.  Please note that pre-ordering ensures your item selection and speeds pickup to some extent.  However, since pickups are from each separate vendor, we are not offering curb-side pickup at the farm perimeter; you will still need to enter the market area where we limit shopper counts to enable social distancing in accordance with state pandemic regulations.

Our activities to date align with our plans for limiting public events during this time of social distancing and conforms to CDC and State of New York guidelines.  Farm staff and the folks at the tables will be wearing masks and asking customers to shop at each table one at a time.  Please be respectful of others as you visit the farm, do not come in groups, and wear a mask. If you do not come with a mask or choose not to wear one, we will not be able to admit you to the farm.

As previously reported and to bolster the safety of our staff and community, the farm is generally closed to visitors and that policy will continue until further notice. 

Please bring your own tote bag or box for the items you purchase.  A box is recommended especially for seedlings. Customers will be asked to pack their own purchases whenever possible and stay 6 feet apart. 

We appreciate your passion and support, and we hope to see you on Saturday!

With gratitude,
