The mission of the Lehigh Valley Outpost is to increase public awareness of healthy, seasonal and sustainable food by incorporating innovative farming techniques and agritourism activities. Offering a platform to educate children and adults about the sources of their food, and prepare them to steward the land that provides it.

Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program allows for the opportunity to bring the community together by encouraging member involvement, offering hands-on learning, educational programs, and a fun filled day at the farm with animals and activities for the whole family. Stewarding “Food to Table” philosophies, thus creating interest in homemade meals, support to our locally based food system, reducing the need and interest for out-of-region products. The Lehigh Valley Outpost is committed to supporting our neighboring farms and communities. Through our sponsorship to Sent By Ravens, (SBR) Food Pantry, a 501-c3 non-profit organization, our vision is for every family to have access to healthy food. Participation in our CSA program, agritourism activities, and charitable donations are used to fund our ability to supply SBR and other local food pantries through out western New York with naturally grown foods.

      Hey thanks!

      Rush is a amazingly beautiful little Town. Basically about 10 to 15 minutes from anywhere in Rochester. Most people who travel this area only know it as the left hand turn on their way to 390….you know the one..with that vacant building on the corner.

      I remember being a young boy walking the farm with my Grandfather. Our walks would always with a question, “tell me what you see?”. Which would create the opportunity for him to share his experiences growing up on that very same farm. We would walk to the top of the hill and just sit, staring off into the distant Bristol hills. Through his father’s love for this farm and town, a seed was planted in him. That same seed has been shared across now five generations. Same farm, same view, same passion for this community.
      In 2004, I adopted the Rush portion of the Lehigh Valley Trail. Maintaining and doing small community projects for others to enjoy. It was not until then that I realized how many people just turned left at the hamlet, and had never looked beyond the vacant old Big M.
      I encourage people to visit the farm, walk our fields and pastures, talk with our Farmers. Let’s us plant a seed for community and a passion for the land in you,your children and all of our futures.

      Blessings
      Farmer Kyle
