JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (May 17, 2023) -- Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County’s Agriculture Program is excited to announce the Grand Opening of the Carlberg Farm Livestock and Produce, a participant with the CCE Chautauqua Grown Program.
The taste of local can be found at Carlberg Farm Livestock and Produce, a family farm located just outside of Jamestown on the corner of Carlberg Road and Route 380, owned by Eric and Ginny Carlberg. What started out as a humble self-service produce wagon by the road, has now grown into a full-service produce stand within their newly renovated, while historically preserved, grainary barn. To celebrate the opening of their new stand, Carlberg Farm invites the public to their Grand Opening, Ribbon Cutting, Open House, and Vendor Show on Saturday, May 20th, 2023, from 10 AM to 3 PM, at 1982 Peck Settlement Rd. Jamestown, NY.
Carlberg Farm has been providing Jamestown and surrounding areas with fresh produce since 2019, growing strawberries, rhubarb, sweet corn, potatoes, squash, tomatoes, and more. The new produce stand will allow the Carlberg’s to expand and provide a full-service experience to their customers, now offering homegrown and local meat, additional refrigeration, freezer, and shelf space, and accepting credit/debit and SNAP/EBT cards. The farm will also accept Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program checks starting June 1st, and Double Up Food Bucks starting July 1st.
The Carlberg’s work with other area farms and businesses to provide a full list of local goods, including honey, maple syrup, cheese, goat milk soap, locally roasted coffee, baked goods, homemade nut butters, and more. The Grand Opening on May 20th will feature a Ribbon Cutting ceremony by the Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce, and a vendor show and product tastings from: Eden Valley Creamery (South Dayton), Whizz-n-Smash Nut Butters (Dewittville), Lizzie’s Doughnuts and Baked Goods (Frewsburg), Gustafson Maple Country USA (Falconer), Harvest Homestead’s honey (Kennedy), Dalahast Roasting Company (Jamestown), local nature artist Ann Brantingham (Jamestown), and Lantern’s Hollow Farm (Kennedy). Jamestown Farmer’s Market Manager, Linnea Haskin, will provide information about SNAP, Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program Checks, Double Up Food Bucks, and other currencies that can be used at local farm stands and Farmer’s Markets. Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County will provide information about Chautauqua Grown, a directory of local farms, information about Chautauqua County 4-H, and a SNAP educator will have a delicious snack.
