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 CSA, Healthy 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
Over the decades Grindstone Farm has become highly diverse in its offerings and services. Due to some new rules, regulations and timing, we need to modify our business. Our focus will still be producing organic foods on the farm and distributing goods from local providers as well as Wholeshare. The most significant change we are excited to share with you is that partners Travis Pistello and Beth Wells, who have been working at Grindstone Farm for five years, will be leveraging their skills and experience to start their own business, Freedom Rains Farm (FRF), through leasing land from Grindstone and growing for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).
What does this mean to you?
- The change to you, our customer, should be seamless unless you become a CSA member, in which case you will sign up and receive produce through FRF.
- GSF will be growing a smaller variety of produce, focusing on direct sales to you through our website and farmers markets at Oswego, Watertown and the Syracuse Regional Market and wholesale accounts. GSF will continue to offer products grown by us as well as from other local and organic farms, including FRF.
Having operated Grindstone Farm for 30+ years, owners Dick & Vic are looking forward to transitioning toward retirement and allowing family and long-time, valued staff to step into roles of greater leadership and business management. Grindstone Farm’s goal to provide our customers with healthy, certified organic and locally raised natural products remains the same. We will also continue to offer opportunities for others to learn about food production and farming. We hope you will stay with us and support our young farmers as they begin their own farm business, bringing more great organic food to the CNY region. Wishing you health, abundance and healthy green blessings in 2014.

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.
