The new Williamsville site is at St. John Lutheran Church at 6540 Main Street. Thanks to Wendy and Dave Barth who connected us with the Church and thanks to the Church for hosting the Native Offerings Farm Amherst distribution. This site has lots of parking, more space and for the winter a heated distribution site! We are excited to have an improved location.

Nicole Radder Rassman Yay!!! Thank you Wendy & Dave!!! If I am correct on the location, it's on the corner of Main and Hampton Hill, which leads directly to Sheridan Drive. Therefore, you'll be able to access the church lot from Sheridan/Hampton Hill as well as Main St.

Native Offerings Farm The transplanter is a big improvement over hand planting but you still have to hand set the plants. It does save you from crawling on your hands and knees!

The rye is being mowed. We plant rye in the fall as a cover crop. This serves to prevent erosion, to capture nitrogen in the soil and to improve the structure of the soil. In the spring it is plowed under as a green manure. Today is plow day as the conditions are perfect.
