Sunscape Farms is a 50+ acre farm located on Creek Street in Penfield. We grow a wide range of fruit and vegetables as well as seasonal cut flowers. See our seasonal produce list here.
Sunscape Farms is a sole proprietorship owned and managed by Nathan Savage. 15 years ago, when kids his age were enamored with action figures and video games, Nate loved green things that grew. His father would take him to the Webster market, not realizing that he was helping Nate cultivate a passion that would soon become his career! In 1999, Nate began growing produce to sell at markets and established Sunscape Farms in 2004.
Sustainability and Environmental Responsibility
We have developed into a family-owned business with a focus on responsible growing. We use little if any pesticides and most of the fungicides that we use are certified for organic growing. We work hard to ensure that there is no spray residual on our crops. Tilling, discing, hoeing, and hand-pulling are used in place of the usual extensive, commercial-grade herbicides to control weeds and unwanted plants, and no post-harvest chemical treatments are used on the produce. We also refuse to use genetically altered (GMO) produce varieties.
We conscientiously rotate our crops every year, and carefully select cover crops (which are not meant for harvest) to prevent erosion and reduce pests. These cover crops increase the health of the soil when they are tilled under in the spring. Read more about our growing practices here.
Thanks to overwhelming support from the community, Sunscape Farms joined with local farmers, vendors, business people and residents to open its first market in 2001. Since that time, we have begun to provide the freshest, locally-grown produce available in the area. Find one of our locations near you by clicking here.
Today, we have grown to become one of the most trusted farms in our area. When you buy your produce from us, you can be sure that it will always be fresh, safe, and local.
