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.

Sonia Efron Gee, that's another high traffic area, but quite a bit further out for us. Where is the Buffalo pickup?

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.

Thousands of onions are now growing in the soil. Deb and the crew got them in just before the rain.

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.

What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

CSA is a movement that reconnects the community with its food source, the local farmer — a grassroots alternative to agribusiness.

Native Offerings Farm & Community Supported Agriculture

We are certified naturally grown, following organic standards, which prohibit the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and fertilizers. Following standards assures you that genetically modified crops and organisms will not end up in your food. More information on Certified Naturally Grown available at www.NaturallyGrown.org.

We believe healthy soils produce healthy plants and employ ecological practices such as composting, cover cropping, mulching and crop rotation. We look at the farm as an ecosystem that we directly impact and want to encourage and enhance diversity instead of limiting it.

Farming for the community and providing the best food we can offer to you is our only business. We grow varieties noted for their culinary and nutritional value. Because every meal begins with your eyes, we enjoy growing beautiful vegetables. We believe a healthy diet is essential to superior health and longevity.

Why we charge what we do. In a sentence our pricing lies between wholesale and retail. Surveys returned consistently report that people are getting great value. When you buy a share or a bunch of arugula you are buying more than vegetables, you are supporting our family. We work very hard to earn a modest living. The price we receive for our shares makes it sustainable for us to continue doing what we love. The members are shareholders of the produce we grow. Without their support we would be unable to farm. By supporting us you not only get incredibly fresh and great tasting vegetables full of nutrients and vitality, but a food source you can trust.
