Hard to believe it, but here we are... hints of Autumn sneaking in with each cool breeze and the stars showing themselves a bit earlier every evening. Don't hate me for saying it - BUT THE END OF SUMMER IS THE BEST PART OF SUMMER!

With fall plantings happening every day and our summer crops really baring the fruits of our labor it is hard to not love the abundance that this month brings, while trying to manage the chaos of course. Pizza popups have been chugging along and we feel so loved to have so much community support at each and every location. Even more exciting, watching new faces walk-in to the greenhouse every Saturday to enjoy pizza and #BuriedAcornBrewing beer. It has been quite an adventure opening up the farm to the public once a week - you have made it so much easier with your smiles and encouraging words, so thank you!

Looking towards fall you can expect more of the same from us here at Stone Bend - pizza and plans. Stay tuned or visit often to observe the progress first hand!

As you may have noticed, we've been busy this year! Between pizza popups, expanding our growing, and opening our geothermal greenhouse to the public it has been a very exciting few months.

For now we are only inviting guests to come eat on #saturdaysatstonebend but have plenty of plans to expand those offerings soon. We jave live music, farm to table pizza and salads every Saturday from 430-9pm.

Hope to see you all soon and even more so, we hope you're enjoying your summer!

It has been a minute since we've checked in here so here's a quick recap of the last few months:

Our year long Goethermal Greenhouse/Prep Kitchen/Taproom/Farmstore build is 99% complete -- with plans to invite you all by early spring - we have been busy busy busy!

Pizza nights are kicking off again January 22nd with our pals at Bar Argos in Downtown Ithaca - preorder are live so get it while the gettin' is good.

We are taking bookings for the 2021 season for catering {weddings, Rehearsal dinners, special occasions otherwise} We will also be offering some very unique spaces for your events as well - more details (and pics) to come!

Lastly, we're looking for some interested folks who have some extra time to spend on the farm. Wanna learn a little about Growing? Cooking ? Baking? Everything? We would love to bring in some helping hands this spring in return you will be well fed, and invited to learn whatever gets you excited about being here!

That's it for now-- hope everyone's year has started on a good note (relatively speaking). We all have much work to do, but the future is ours to mold!
