Many thanks to you all!
Kate, I'd love to bring a rack of our seed to sell if you feel it is appropriate.
Thanks again for this opportunity, friends! It will be so good to share, connect, learn & grow with you all :)
If there are other ways Fruition can support & inspire this event, don't be shy!
Matthew Goldfarb and Petra Page-Mann, co-owners and
farmers of Fruition Seeds, grow over 100 seed crops on five acres of certified
organic seed between three farms in the heart of the Finger Lakes, in Naples
and Branchport, New York.
In Petra’s hometown of Naples we lease two phenomenal
acres from Mark Adams on Hickory Bottom Road. The soil is incredible:
predominantly silt loams with over 5% organic matter and a pH between 6.2 and
6.9. We are so grateful to be raising seed here! We have Mark and his decades-long
chicken operation to thank for the abundance of organic matter. We also have Mark
to thank for his invaluable perspective and experience.
Hickory Bottom is the site of our main facility to clean,
store, germination test, pack and ship our seed.
Fifteen minutes east, we lease an acre from our friends
John and Caroline Hunt at Italy Hill Produce and Hunt Country Vineyards in
Branchport. The soil has more clay than our farm in Naples but is quality
nonetheless; our plants are robust and resilient.
the edge of Naples and North Cohocton – just off a little road called Eelpot –
we have begun farming some beautiful muckland. We are looking forward to
growing a wide variety of seed crops here as the land has excellent isolation
from other produce operations.
