We would like to Thank all Stoneledge Farm Members who participated in our survey. Per members request we conducted a survey to allow input and suggestions. We appreciate all responses, and are carefully considering all requests and ideas. If you did not get the chance to participate in this survey, we will be conducting another survey at the end of the season.
For the 2016 season the Stoneledge Farm Marketplace will be offering conventionally grown NON GMO sweet corn. This corn will be sourced from Story’s Farm in Kiskatom, NY (a local neighboring farm) Also, for the 2016 season we have a couple new varieties of radishes. All of the sugar snap peas and edamame beans are planted in the fields and are looking lush.
Stoneledge Farm dose the best to our ability to serve all of our members with the best organic food for the entire growing season. We really enjoy having our members being involved in part of the farm decision making. If you have any other requests or ideas, please send us an e-mail.
From all of us at

Pete Jr. getting the cultivator all hooked up to cultivate and fertilize the garlic. Cultivating loosens the soil that had been compacted over the long winter months, allowing the plants to access the nutrients that it needs to survive. Cultivating will also help keep the weeds down, and allow for proper growth of the vegetable.
