Are you going to be at Horsefeathers tomorrow? Do you by any chance sell some of your fermented veggies or is that only for the share? I have to go on antibiotics and would love some!

It was so cold at the farm today that the thermometer bottomed out at -25F. I am glad that we do not have distributions scheduled for this week. It is a good time for a vacation. We will return for the last winter distribution in March.

We will be having our only February distributions this week.

Lauren Bee Sorry to be redundant, so there arent any share pickups this week? Are we done for the season? I wasn't there last pick up so I didnt get to find out or talk to anyone.

Native Offerings Farm There is not a share this week which worked out well because we would have ended up delivering frozen vegetables.

Thanks for the fantastic kim chi this season! We had kim chi noodle soup with egg tonight, and it nourished my very soul! We crave it when the weather gets cold. Wonderful stuff!

This is a true story. A customer approaches the "farmer" at the farmers market and asks if he sprays. The "farmer" responds no which is true since the spraying is not his job. Herbicides, fungicides and pesticides are sprayed on the farm by someone else. We can not advertise that we are organic unless we are certified and there is a reason for this. It is to preserve the integrity of the word ORGANIC.
This is one of the reasons we are in the process of certifying the farm organic. Another is that our previous certifying agent, Certified Naturally Grown, is unknown to almost everyone. What does naturally grown mean anyway? Everything is natural these days it seems. The word has been corrupted. stew

Amy Melton Prentiss Thanks for the education, Stew.

Distribution from November-February

We have a very good idea of what quantities of crops we need to store and how much fermented vegetables are needed. We know how to store the crops to keep them vital and tasting good, and know what crops to store together.

Beginning in November, you will receive just picked greens (weather permitting), roots, apples and other storage crops. The roots include carrots, potatoes, onions, beets, celeriac, turnips, and winter radish. Storage crops include; cabbage, leeks, pumpkins and winter squash. Sauerkraut (made by lactic acid fermentation) is also part of the winter share. Weather permitting, we sometimes have a spring distribution in which we give out greenhouse greens in addition to our storage crops.

Winter Distribution Schedule for Nov. 2014 through Feb. 2015

Dates include all distribution sites. Remember that Orchard Park distribution is on Tuesday, Amherst Area and the Farm distribution is on Wednesday and Buffalo Area is on Thursday.
