What are you selling today?

“Local produce, strawberries, blueberries, cherries, squash, beans, peas and tomatoes.”

What makes your products unique?

“It comes from a background of many years of having the farm. We take pride in what we sell.”

How did you get started in this business?

“I got started in Anna’s Flowers because my sister worked there. So it just kind of passed down through the family.”

What attracted you to sell your goods at the Marcellus Open Air Market?
