Onondaga Valley Area
2 to 3 large sunchokes, sliced 1/4-inch thick
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 sprig of fresh rosemary, leaves removed
3 to 4 cloves of garlic, peeled and left whole
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Scrub the sunchokes under cold running water and slice 1/4-inch thick. Add the sunchokes and garlic to a roasting pan or baking sheet and toss with the olive oil so the bottom of the pan and the sunchokes are lightly coated. Add more olive oil a tablespoon at a time if you don’t feel like the vegetables are coated enough, but not too much; you don’t want them swimming in olive oil. Sprinkle with the salt and rosemary. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the sunchokes are tender inside, like a potato.
Welcome to Grindstone Farm
Grindstone Farm provides produce through our Home Delivery Box Program and Farmer’s Markets (scroll down for locations). With over 25 years of rich experience in growing high quality, certified organic fruits and vegetables, Grindstone Farm has become a well-known leader in Central New York.
We grow over 120 varieties of vegetables and fruits. You’ll find everything from A (asparagus and arugula) to Z (zucchini and zinnia). We also serve as a link between you and other farms through which we offer fresh, natural dairy, meat, organic dried fruits, nuts, honey, maple syrup, juices and more.
What’s New At Grindstone Farm
The website is open for shopping.
Order deadline is noon on Monday.
We have turkeys available ranging from 15-24 pounds. The cost is $3.50 per pound. You can order through the website for delivery this week. Go to the dairy and meat category, scroll down to free range turkey and put in your weight preference. This will be delivered this week, frozen. If you wish to wait until the week of the holiday, shoot me an email and I will be happy to reserve one for you.
This is the last week to reserve a whole or half pig. The first batch is going on Friday, November 7th. A security deposit locks you in to a price of $3.75 per pound, plus the processing fees. And ensures you to get the cuts you prefer. If you decide not to pay a deposit and still want to get one you will pay $4.25 per pound plus processing fees and you will get it cut up the way we have advised the butcher to process it. The choice is yours. Secured depositors will have first pick of available hanging weights. We will be contacting those of you who have already paid a deposit this week to complete your choices on the cuts.
Freedom Rains Farm CSA shareholders who are interested in resuming healthy box deliveries should pop on to their accounts to make sure they have an order set up. If you wish to resume a “standing order” please email or phone me and I will set it up for you. The standing order option is no longer available on the customer side.
Freedom Rains Farm will begin selling Grindstone Farm produce at the Regional Market on Saturdays beginning November 1st. Keep in mind, placing an order online is better for you. Orders can be picked up at Regional Market on Saturdays without incurring a delivery charge.
Tierra Farms has notified us of a significant price increase in some of the products we have been carrying. Because of this we will slowly be decreasing the product line since we must order all products in full cases and cannot afford to tie up our finances in unsold pantry items.
We have a few 1/2 bushels of applesauce apples available. The cost is $14.50 per 1/2 bushel. If you are interested in having a 1/2 bushel delivered with your order please email me with your request. We are not putting it on the website because we only have a few.

We at Grindstone Farm know you care about local eating, so we have created this group on Wholeshare to open the door to Regional Access’s wholesale products. This site operates a bit differently than your Grindstone account, in that you can order bulk items, but you can also initiate a “split” of a bulk item so that you are buying only what you can handle.
