    Hi. I’m interested in your berry share. First, are there still shares available? I see you will be at the Clarence Farmer’s Market this week. Will you always be there? If so, would I be able to use that as a pick up site?

    • gespanek15@gmail.com says:

      Thanks so much for your interest in our Berry CSA. Unfortunately, sign ups are closed for the season, but you can always contact us with a pre-order and we can save the items for you at the Clarence Farmers’ Market. You can call 585-590-2356 or email gespanek15@gmail.com with your requests. Please give us at least 24 hour notice. We will look into having Clarence FM as a pick up for our CSA for 2015. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I need some clarification about the jam share. Is it 12 pts. of any kind of jam per month? Or will there be specific kinds– Thank you

    • gespanek15@gmail.com says:

      Sorry for the confusion. The Jam/Freezer Share is actually designed for those who wish to make jam or freeze/can fruit for the winter months. So it is actually pints or quarts of fruit. That being said, we do sell jam and jelly at our farm stand and at the Clarence Hollow Farmers Market. We discount bulk orders. If you are interested in that, you would have your choice of jams and jellies.

    I am wondering if your fruits and veggies are organic and have chemicals. My family is trying to eat foods that are natural for health reasons. This is a great idea!

    • gespanek15@gmail.com says:

      Our farm is not organic but we practice Integrated Pest Management. We monitor our plants and lovingly protect and treat them only if necessary. We believe in a quality product grown in a responsible and sustainable manner. Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions

    Strongly looking at this for a daycare center in Medina. Would be interested in the fruit and vegetables. Not sure what size would be appropriate for the center. We serve on average 30/45 children a day with fresh fruits and veggies in almost every snack/meal. Was unsure of your pick up location and approximate prices. This would be wonderful to offer to our students. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you

  6. Charlotte Breunig says:

    Sounds like the fruit shares are all gone. How about the vegetable shares? If still avalable how much? Do you sell 1/2 shares for vegetables

    • gespanek15@gmail.com says:

      Hi Charlotte. all of our CSA shares are still available. The comment about us not taking anymore for the year was from last year. We don’t offer half veg shares but recommend people share with a family member or friend.
