Last week of the summer CSA! Join us friday night November 1st for a potluck on the farm to celebrate the end of the season! Bring a dish to pass and one to eat from if you can and come see the farm in it's autumn splendor!  6 pm but come even if it'll be a little later. 

This week's corning market will be in the same park but vendors will be set up along the brick path to the fountain. (There was a mistake in applying for the permit to use the park and this the last week was not included. In order to use city property there needs to be a permit, confusing but look around, we'll only be 100 feet from where we normally are!)

 Autumn!

Thanks for joining us to eat through the seasons! Want to keep eating local food?  We have a fall and winter CSA that runs from November through March pickups available inside the information center in Corning on Saturdays 11-3 and at Chamberlain acres farmer's Market Sundays 11-3.

Your support of our farm means the world to us!  Thank you so much! If we don't see you this winter, we hope to see you next spring!

 These are some of the bean seeds we grew for Fruition Seeds this year. These beautiful beans are called Haudenosaunee Skunk beans...I guess because they are black and white like skunks, not because they smell bad.

 Our "wall of onions". It was a good harvest this year and we have a great supply of onions and shallots. Thanks to Matthew's Mom for cleaning them.

 This photo was popular on Instagram this week.

Yes, you can believe it! Those are sweet potatoes that we grew and the voles did not eat them! We will have them available in the CSA the week after next. Right now they are curing in one of our coolers that has been converted into a heater. They have to cure at 85 degrees for about 10 days. They are gorgeous!

Sorry there was no update last week. We did not have any WiFi last weekend.
