BELIEVE IN THE LOVE AND SPIRIT OF THE FARM
Welcome to Voytko Farms!
We're working hard to keep up with the ever changing situation regarding the Covid 19 virus. Rest assured that our primary focus is everyone's safety while trying to provide our customers with a constant supply of high quality food. Please check below for updates regarding hours, procedures and availability.
OUR CSA PROGRAMS
We are offering a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program this summer for our fourth year in a row. We're planning an 18 week season starting the first week of June and running through the first week of October.
TIPS FOR VISITING
- mind the signs that are posted (there are bees and groundhog holes to watch for)
- supervise children at all times
- wear shoes, shirts and other proper clothing; sunscreen/hat and insect repellant may come in handy
- watch out for poison ivy
- no pets
- bring any trash to the barn
- respect the property and plantings, they are our business
OUR PESTICIDE POLICY
We try to keep the use of pesticides on our berries & produce to a minimum. Just as we all sometimes need medicine to treat our ills, crops occasionally have problems and pests which need to be controlled. It is only under these circumstances that we employ only the most environmentally friendly products and practices available. We thank you for your understanding.
This week at the farm...
July 12, 2020
Blueberries are ready and looking good. We are open our regular hours which are 8 till 7 Mon thru Sat and 9 till 5 on Sunday. We've been open for almost a week and the crop is still getting better and better. The best picking of the season should be over the next couple of weeks. Black and red currants are pretty much done for this season. It wasn't a great year for those and what there was is pretty well picked over. You're always welcome to look at them, but I would not recommend traveling a great distance just for currants.
We've added a new option this year for anyone who doesn't like to take your berries home in bags. We'll have a supply of new pails just like ours that you can purchase, take home and reuse as you like. This way, your berries should travel better with less handling and you have your own clean pail to use, Remember it's a one time cost and will be $2.00 per pail.
Jessa is starting a new program this spring to make fresh produce available. Every Sunday, she will be posting a list of the products that will be available in the coming week. You can email her an order and preference of pickup time.
The plan is to offer pickup during CSA pickups on Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as the option to pickup at the South Russell farmers market on Saturdays.
Please click on the "Weekly Availability" tab near the top of the page to see a list of the veggies available this week.
We have the first 2020 chickens and ducks in the freezer and a steer went in last week so the chicken supply is good right now and the most recent beef is now in the freezer so we have a great selection there.
While we don't usually keep regular hours this time of year so please keep checking back for updates.
We can accept payment through PayPal, Venmo, or other credit cards if you like. We know there is a lot of uncertainty out there right now but be assured we are always here to try to fill your needs.
Emails and texts are usually the best way to contact us or call our cell phones.

Thanks, Jessa and Chuck
Fresh. Friendly. Healthy. Wholesome.
