I am first and foremost a farmer – a contadino. And even though society made my father and grandfather ashamed to be growers, I’m proud to be the son of a contadino and to be one myself.
— Elio Grasso, Distinguished Piemontese Winemaker


At the heart of Old Tioga Farm is our desire to produce beautiful and nutritious produce. We grow vegetables for about 30 families following the marketing model known as community supported agriculture, or CSA. In a CSA, members of the farm make a commitment for an entire growing season (June through October) and in return receive a share of their choice of fresh, delicious vegetables. Weekly shares are available in various sizes to meet the differing needs of customers.

Although we are not certified, our philosophy and practices reflect an organic approach to farming.


In addition to our vegetable CSA, we offer bread shares for members who commit to the farm for a whole season (June-October). On a weekly basis, we offer the two breads that we make for the restaurant: a crusty country hearth loaf and a soft, focaccia flatbread. Both breads are made using traditional, artisan methods including long, slow fermentation.
