Good food resources in the NY Finger Lakes area

 

halcyon acres produceHalcyon Acres® is in the process of relocating (read, the farm has been sold and we haven’t set up in a permanent new location). We will be offering herbs (custom mail order anywhere in the United States) in the coming months, along with a limited produce supply, but plans for next year will put us in another state (to be determined) as the produce season begins.

That said, you can still find chemical-free, fresh-picked produce in the area, if you’re willing to take a drive. Thanks to Angela Bedient for providing the information below.

Angela Bedient is a Potter local (my home town for 20 years up until this month of May) providing beef, pork and chicken year-round by the piece, small packages or half and whole animals. Bedient Farms Natural Beef is located on West Swamp Road 2 miles from Potter central (don’t blink – there’s a town hall, restaurant and usually some kind of signage on the other side of the road announcing the latest fire department fundraiser). She sells from the farm by appointment, offers local deliveries and has a booth at the Branchport and Canandaigua Farmer’s Markets. You can reach Bedient Farms and Angela via phone at (585) 738-3114.

Growing chemical-free produce can be a spiritual experience. Join me as I discover and share the secrets to making it work on a tiny plot of suburban land in Roanoke as I try to adapt what I learned during 20 years on over 100 acres rural in New York.
