Emma says it best – Thanksgiving is the perfect time to celebrate the incredible bounty we have here in the Fingerlakes! The time to start planning is now – order a Thanksgiving Share Box from us, plan where to purchase your turkey, and start shopping early! You can start stocking up on basics and local goodies right away which will be a huge time saver. Between the full bushel box of organic produce from our farm and a quick stop at The Piggery for local meats and cheeses, I know I won’t have much extra shopping to do!
