2016 Calendar of Events -
More to Come!

We are so excited about our 2016 farm events.  Each program - luncheon, class, tea or tasting, is filled with spirit. We are ready to take reservations!

An old story an insight into a special fruit the bursting color of the season a poem - the very character of our world is our real fare the foods and flowers, linens and lovely tables our tools. We also share information about how to pick, pack, handle and prepare the particular fruit of the moment. We talk about our passion for the land and our dedication to its continuance in agricultural production.

 Reservations may be made by calling our market at 585-638-8838.  Reservations for our programs are pre-paid and non-refundable.
