About the Harvest Patch
The Harvest Patch is a local grown family run farm…
Located in the rolling hills of Wyoming County New York… The Harvest Patch is owned and operated by Joseph and Amy Meyer. Joseph has worked the land, milked the cows, and tended to the family farm since his birth… In 1980 he married the lady of his dreams Amy, and in 1983 they begin the Meyer family with Sarah Elizabeth in May of 1983, Ashley Claire in July of 1985, and Kate Marie in August of 1989….
The Harvest Patch all began when Sarah was two and Joseph wanted to plant her some pumpkins for Halloween, well those few plants he planted turned into 50 pumpkins, more than a two year old can carve, so he put up two cement blocks with a 2×4 and stacked the pumpkins for sale by the road… Well with a one day sell out he thought he might be on to something, and then became the birth of the Harvest Patch.
Every year we grow the business a little bit… Our Sweet Corn Stand is a much awaited sight for the locals coming out in mid July. We keep the stand stocked with corn, beans, potatoes, tomatoes, flowers, maple syrup, honey, jams, cucumbers, and much more through the summer months. As fall approaches the stand moves up the hill to make space to showcase the fall harvested pumpkins…
From 2011-2015 we offered CSA shares with a weekly membership.
For 2016 we have decided to grow our roadside stand business. We will be adding a new stand at the corner of Oakwood Avenue and South Willow Street in East Aurora. The corner location allows for parking on South Willow street. The East Aurora Stand will be fully stocked with the vegetables available from the farm, and open daily from dawn til dusk. The veggies will just travel the 7 miles from the farm to your dinner table.
In 2016 we also grew with the building of the Harvest Patch Maple House. Our first syrup season was cut short by Mother Nature with the very early warm weather and the budding out of the Sugar Maple Trees. We were able to produce very delicious Maple Syrup in our short season that will be available at our roadside stands, as well as email orders.
From our family farm to your family table we look forward to providing you with farm fresh vegetables all season long!
