— On Aug. 6, a breezy summer morning, the Cazenovia Preservation Foundation sponsored a trip to Greyrock Farm Community Supported Agriculture, as part of their Summer Walk Series. Visitors were treated to a full tour of the farm and its inner-workings by owner, Matt Volz.

Greyrock Farm is an agribusiness, whose products are provided to members who bought shares in the farm’s harvest. Volz provided an educational tour of the farm and explained how he raises his chickens, lambs, cows and draft horses in a natural environment. He then showed us his vegetable gardens and the horse-powered equipment used to maintain them.

Anyone interested in finding out more about Greyrock Farm can visit localharvest.org/greyrock-farm-csa, or stop by the farm stand at 6100 East Lake Road. Visitors can purchase eggs and unpasteurized milk anytime, and if available, in-season vegetables are featured on Friday afternoons.

The Summer Walk Series, sponsored by the CPF, has been very popular so far this season. There are only a couple of walks left this summer so come join in the fun. For more information, visit cazpreservation.org.

Janet Elliott is a staff member for the Cazenovia Preservation Foundation.
