“And here is the serpent again, dragging himself out from his nest of darkness, his cave under the black rocks, his winter-death. He slides over the pine needles. He loops around the bunches of rising grass, looking for the sun. Well, who doesn’t want the sun after the long winter?” - Excerpt from Spring by Mary Oliver
It may be 25 degrees outside, but it sure feels like spring in here! The anticipation of new life, and another opportunity, a new season to provide organic whole food for our community, has got us feeling grateful on this - the first day of Spring! 🐣🌱☀️🌷
“...how Love burns through the Putting in the Seed, On through the watching for that early birth. When, just as the soil tarnishes with weed, the sturdy seedling with arched body comes, Shouldering it’s way and shedding the earth crumbs.” - Robert Frost, Putting in the Seed

#Repost @foundrybuffalo We are so excited to be teamed up with these guys, and so fortunate to have them build us a farm stand this season! More to come in the future, we can’t wait to have them come out to the farm! Collaboration and community is what it’s all about !! ・・・ Great presentation by @gwmgbflo and @ahfcmembership for @tscwny Youthbuild on Friday. Can’t wait to start building mobile farm stands with everyone!
We’re excited to be part of this new effort along with Groundwork Buffalo, Field and Fork Network, and @ggwny with the mission to . . “...increase awareness of opportunities in the growing agricultural sector as well as create new opportunities within the local food system to support community health. This certification program frames urban agriculture as an entrepreneurial endeavor and will help to develop a new generation of food and agriculture professionals in Buffalo, generating a pipeline of skilled labor that connects youth to real job opportunities in the city and region” . . Creating community, opportunities, and promoting learning are always a part of our mission at the farm, so we think it’ll be a great fit!! We’re so grateful for our Buffalo community that continuously shows up and supports urban agriculture 🙌 . .

Lol the struggle is real! A little farm humor, but seriously, in an ever changing, more convenience-oriented society, it’s easy to see the attraction to services like Blue Apron. BUT, the benefits of having a relationship with a local farm, and its farmers, are abounding. Head over to the link in our bio to learn more about how joining a CSA could be great for both you and your neighborhood farm!
