Special news about Amy's Farm Produce
We know that many of you rely on our produce as a part of your healthy diet. We will continue to announce on social media and our website certain days in which we will open our produce stand so that you can shop for all of our summer vegetables including our delicious heirloom tomatoes, stone fruit, and summer squash. We planted all of our crops in anticipation of staying on this land indefinitely, so our veggies are all growing in abundance.
Currently, we are offering two days to shop at our produce stand this summer:
Fridays 3 pm - 6 pm
Saturdays 9 am – 1 pm
Our farm-to-table restaurant:
In anticipation of the potential loss of the farmland, Amy has planted a satellite garden, off-site, in order to give her farm-to-table restaurant in Claremont, Uno Tre Otto, a seamless supply of seasonal produce. Careful planning went into establishing a new site, starting 6 months ago, using our farm compost and chemical-free methods to plant an array of veggies and herbs. So, when our original 10 acres are officially closed and out of production, you will still be able to enjoy Amy’s Farm Produce at her restaurant.
Our Produce Stand
We at Amy’s Farm are committed to sharing quality products grown on our farm with you, our customers. We use sustainable methods, we are 100% chemical free, and we are “beyond organic” meaning we do not carry the organic name on our products because we do not use any herbicides or pesticides, organic or otherwise. We strive to create an open relationship between farmers and consumers. We urge you to walk in our gardens, observe our methods, ask questions and learn, and establish a connection with the food you eat. We invite you to “Know Your Farmer”.
We invite you to visit our produce stand. It is a unique shopping experience. Our produce stand is self-serve / honor system because you will find we are out working in the gardens or conducting educational tours. We are always available and happy to help you as needed and we love meeting first-time shoppers. We grow most fruits and vegetables, according to their seasons. Availability varies often. Availability cannot be guaranteed, but we do our best to serve you. You are welcome to shop our produce stand Tuesday-Saturday from 9am-5pm. We are closed on Sundays and Mondays. Our summer hours will change after July 1: Our produce stand will be open for limited hours
Fridays 3pm - 6pm and Saturdays 9am - 1pm

What is CSA – Community Supported Agriculture?
CSA is a partnership between a farm and a community of supporters. It provides a relationship between the production and consumption of food. CSA participants make a commitment to support the farm throughout the season and assume the costs, risks, and bounty of growing food along with the farmer or grower. Participating in community-supported agriculture creates a responsible relationship between people and the food they eat, the land on which it is grown, and those who grow it.
Amy's Farm Produce - Community-Supported Agriculture
We are considering re-establishing our CSA program in the future. If you are interested in becoming a member of this type of program. Please contact us to add your name to our interest list.
Why Is Community Supported Agriculture Important?
- CSA's direct marketing gives farmers and growers the fairest return on their products.
- CSA keeps food dollars in the local community and contributes to the maintenance and establishment of regional food production.
- CSA encourages communication and cooperation among farmers.
- With a "guaranteed market" for their produce, farmers can invest their time in doing the best job they can rather than looking for buyers.
- CSA supports the biodiversity of a given area and the diversity of agriculture through the preservation of small farms producing a wide variety of crops.
- CSA creates opportunities for dialogue between farmers and consumers.
- CSA creates a sense of social responsibility and stewardship of local land.
- CSA puts "the farmer's face on food" and increases understanding of how, where, and by whom our food is grown.
