Becker Farms and Vizcarra Vineyards

Posted by on Jul 5, 2018 in Featured Farmers | 0 comments

The Vizcarra family, owners of Becker Farms and Vizcarra Vineyards, embraces Mother Nature and they want everyone else to embrace it with the same passion as they do. Their fruit and vegetable farm and vineyard is a big place — 340 acres to be exact. And they’ve been around a long time — a century. We made a stop at the farm to learn more about what they offer. We learned that they like to strengthen roots, and not just those on their plants. Their philosophy is that a farm fresh meal is the foundation for maintaining a strong bond with families and friends — and further, it strengthens communities and enriches lives. The farm grows about every local fruit you can imagine. On our visit we could see that the strawberries were nearly ready for harvest. After strawberries,...

The Kernel

Posted by on Sep 20, 2017 in Featured Farmers | 0 comments

We spent a beautiful August afternoon at The Kernel farm with patriarch Bruce Muck. He raises popcorn, garlic, soybeans, field corn, and alfalfa hay for the herd of beef cattle. Bruce has been at this location since 1970. The present farm is 325 acres. Bruce showed us his chickens (which were entertaining to say the least). He currently has 36 chickens that produce brown eggs. We enjoyed listening to the increase of the chickens’ murmurs as we approached. Bruce said they have a lot of personality. We took a ride along the lane viewing cornfields. You could hear the pride in Bruce’s voice as he talked about his daily walk on that lane. The corn was tall and healthy, and truly a sight to see. The farm grows popcorn, field corn, and corn for ethanol. You can tell the difference in...

Summertime Blooms

Posted by on Sep 16, 2016 in Featured Farmers | 0 comments

When you visit the Williamsville Farmers Market, the kaleidoscope of colors you see from produce to flowers to artisan wares, will surely leave an impression with you. The Summertime Blooms stand at the Market is a like a life-size flower arrangement, full of brilliant color and beauty. But visiting the Summertime Blooms farm, with its row upon row of brilliant flowers, planted in sections of color was a site to behold. On our mid-summer visit to the farm, we saw fields of flowers planted both outdoors and inside the hot houses. And they were truly spectacular. Typically we are attracted to a bloom’s shape or color. Names like dahlia, lithianthus, snapdragon, delphinium and beebalm are strange and complex names that may or may not equate to a flower or color for us. But Linda O’Connor, who owns Summertime Blooms...
