NOW is the time you are needed if you have been wanting to volunteer on the farm! We are calling all volunteers for this Saturday 9-4pm to help plant onions, shallots, and leeks! We need you now more than ever as this late spring has left us behind on our spring plantings. Will you help us catch up? If you can make it please email Amy at email@example.com. Please pack a lunch, water, sunblock, bug spray, boots, gloves and/or anything else you might need to work outdoors! No need to stay the whole day whatever time you can devote is wonderful! Sure hope to see you Saturday! ♥ XO! Amy & Brian
P. S. If Saturday does not work for you, we are in the midst of the planting season so if you have other days and times that work better please let us know! We have lots of opportunities for you to help out at the farm!
SO sorry and our deepest apologizes to everyone for the last communication. We came in from working on the farm all day and were completely unaware of the horrendous events that took place in Boston today. We would not have sent out the last communication if we knew and we apologize again for the offense we have committed. Our loving thoughts and prayers are with all those effected by this horrible tragedy. Sending love and light to all.

Wanted to send out a huge heartfelt thank you to all who have participated in our Indiegogo campaign to help raise money to build a larger masonry oven for our sourdough breads! We have reached $3505.00 in just 6 days and if we can keep up the momentum we will be featured on the Indiegogo site with lots more visibility for willing contributors from all over the world! Here is the link again. We have added some NEW and exciting perks so check them out!
If you are wanting to contribute to the bread oven AND you are interested in purchasing additional credits for the farm store or a farmers market you can do so by contributing to the campaign! Please check them out here!
Thanks so much everyone and lets make this happen!

Stay positive! Don’t despair as spring is on the way. We see signs of her everywhere at Alambria!
The garlic has emerged and is looking great! The red winged black birds have returned and the wild geese are flying overhead. 1400 beautiful little heirloom tomato seedlings have emerged from their planting cells. Thousands of shallot, beet, kale, chard, and head lettuce seedlings that were started by our friend Mike Maier are growing stronger every day and awaiting the moment they will be gently placed in the ground at Alambria.The days are gradually getting longer. The animals are incredibly frisky. Brian and I are anxious with anticipation!
We are very excited about this season. We ordered many new and beautiful heirloom and traditional seed varieties. We are excited to see how they come out and even more excited to taste them! Our artisan bread baking has really taken off since we attended a workshop in Ithaca at Wide Awake Bakery. We learned some new techniques and are now baking a wonderful sourdough loaf made from 100% locally grown and milled flour! We are selling out at the winter farmers markets and are hearing from our many returning customers that our breads are the best they have EVER tasted! We are excited and on fire! We hope to be in a position to offer a “bread share” to our market share members next season. We will be announcing an exciting project soon so please watch for additional emails from the farm!
We are encouraged by the number of members that signed up for the new market shares! We think everyone will enjoy the flexibility and free-choice that this model offers.
We hope to begin planting mid-April if we can manage to begin working the ground early April. Several members have indicated they are interested in volunteering this season and we can sure use the extra help. Please email Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested!
We have several wonderful employee’s lined up for this season. Michael Brooks, Jennifer Mansky, and Jeri Claire. We are excited to share Alambria Springs with them and are encouraged by all they have to offer!
Look forward to seeing you all very soon.

We’ll be at Circa winters market this Saturday 9-12 with gourmet asian salad mix, sourdough breads, shallots, and beets! Excited to hear how many of you liked our “new” sourdough breads since we added local flours and a new technique! We are lovin’ the all local flour loaf from Farmer Ground Flour which we have rightfully named LSD(local sourdough) because of the “altered” state you experience while tasting this delight!
Lots more fabulous local goodies at Circa Saturday from our rockin’ local producers such as lamb, bison, beef, poultry, cheeses, eggs, gluten-free mixes, fresh roasted coffees and more! Don’t miss out…we’ll be there. Will you??
Also, our farm store will be open for those who are unable to make it to Circa. We will be offering SD breads, shallots, beets, asian greens, and grass-fed ground beef from Sweet Grass Farm. If this works better for you, please email Amy at email@example.com with your order which will be available for pick up on Sat from 9-3pm. Thanks so much!
In addition, members were asking for a reminder about additional credit payments for market shares. So… this is a reminder to those who want to purchase more! Your payments can be sent in anytime for whatever amounts you desire. Please send to 834 Musician Road Earlville NY 13332! We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing all of you in a few months!
Well, looks like we are not going to get away from this one folks so regretfully we will not be attending the Oneida County Public Market tomorrow Sat Feb 9th from 9-2!
The good news is that we would LOVE to fire up the bread oven and bake for all our sourdough bread lovers that can’t wait until another market. If you are interested in traveling to the farm to pick up your loaves we do still have shallots, carrots, and beets that you can stock up on while your here! If you are “game” email Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order and we will bake your loaves for pick up next Saturday Feb. 16th! Please place your orders no later than 2pm on Wed. Feb 13th. Remember the loaves freeze wonderfully. All you need to do is put them in your preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes and ENJOY!

Thank you for the wonderful support yesterday at our farm store everyone!! We were impressed by all our dedicated local shoppers who made the long trip to our farm! We had shoppers from Utica, Norwich, Oneida, and many surrounding towns. Pretty neat feeling! We will continue to notify everyone of farm store availability and market dates. By the way, aren’t our carrots just yummy
