You can score some of our mesclun mix pictured here- tender with a bit of peppery heat- harvested fresh this morning. #eatfresh #eatlocal #knowyourfarmer #knowyourfood #byesummer #hellofall
CSA Share Week 15! Carrots, potatoes & corn from our friends @platodalefarm , leeks, tomatoes, garlic, green beans, leaf lettuce, Swiss chard, parsley & sage (not pictured) • • • Just a note: As we are an urban farm in Buffalo, NY we have to carefully select which crops we grow on a small land base in an area with a short growing season. We focus on crops that grow within 60 days or less, so that we can maximize our output, with some exceptions (like beans, tomatoes, peppers, etc) based on profitability or demand. Corn and potatoes don’t make sense for us right now for this reason. Maybe one day they will. But, in the meantime, we like to provide our CSA members with some variety or things they have requested that we just can’t grow. The vast majority of our shares are grown on our farm, but every now and then, if a local farm is growing something too good to pass up, we will offer it in our shares. And we’ll always shout them out when we do. Partnering up with local farms is what it’s all about after all! 🌽🌽🌽
CSA Share Week 14! Radish, kale, choice of herbs, baby bells, golden beets, tomatoes, arugula, purplette mini onion, eggplant, garlic and choice of herbs.
Catching up on a few weeks of CSA photos..

Radish, patty pan squash, leaf lettuce, dragon tongue beans, cherry tomato, tomatillo, baby bell peppers, choice of herbs (basil pictured), tomatoes, garlic and mesclun mix.

Bought this sweet little drill powered tool from @farmersfriendllc and I’m pretty excited about it. It may not look like much, but apparently one can harvest 175lb greens in one hour with this baby! Which means lots more greens production in our future. Cue “Eye of the Tiger” as I make my way out to the fields this morning.. 💪🌱
