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.

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.
