Wickham Farms is a family farm that has been farming in the Penfield area for more than 20 years. 2014 will be our third season offering a CSA program. We offer four different CSA shares to meet the needs of various kinds of households.
Here are details on each share:
Full share ($595 for 18-20 weeks): Geared toward families or vegetarian couples, this includes 8-10 items early in the season, up to 19 items at the peak of the season. Pickup at our farm in Penfield is a farmers market-style setup, with some choices among the offerings, and a recipe to taste. U-pick flowers, herbs and additional veggies are included. Choose Mondays or Thursdays from 4 to 7 p.m. Some Saturday morning u-pick hours.
Biweekly share ($395, 9 to 10 weeks total): This is the same format as our full share, but with pickup every other week. Good for smaller families who still want u-pick opportunities, or for those who have travel planned during the season.
Grab & Go Share ($395 for 18-20 weeks): New in 2014, this is designed for couples, single vegetarians, people new to the CSA experience and people who are limited in time to prepare the produce. A smaller share, it includes 6 to 10 items, with emphasis on the more common crops. It is prepacked for speedy pickup. Pickup is on Tuesdays at three locations: Wickham Farms, The UPS Store in Henrietta, The UPS Store in Victor. This share is also available for delivery to workplaces and neighborhoods with 15 or more members. U-pick opportunities are not included, but an annual add-on is available for $125 per season.
Flower & Herb Share ($125 for 18-20 weeks): This share entitles members to pick flowers and culinary herbs at Wickham Farms throughout the growing season. Choose between Mondays or Thursdays from 4 to 7 p.m.
From April through October, we are also a fun place for the families to spend the day. Attractions include a jumping pillow, batting cages, a kiddy train ride, a mini golf course and a corn maze in the fall. Inside our barn, we serve 32 flavors of ice cream, soft-serve custard, as well as freshly baked cookies made from scratch. We serve casual meals including grilled sandwiches, homemade chicken salad, chicken fingers and fresh-cut fries. We're a great place for birthday parties, group outings, field trips and fundraisers.

I loved belonging to the CSA at Wickham Farms this year. The veggies were fresh and amazing, and we tried new ones. I loved the beets...I think they are now my favorite vegetable.... [more]
