The Farms Growing for You
Fresh, Local and Good for the Lake
Doce Lume Farm offers this online marketplace to serve the Skaneateles community by providing delicious locally grown organic food to families in a safe manner. We’ve added native perennial plants to the market as they serve essential ecological functions and are so very gorgeous for our gardens and lawn conversions!
This site is set up so that other growers/producers may participate and list their inventory. As we are able to manage it, we intend to build this marketplace with local producers’ foods, such as jams, breads, butter, yogurt, cheeses, breads and locally roasted coffee.
This online market currently sells produce and goods from:
- Doce Lume Farm (DLF) For information go to: docelumefarm.com. Market Manager
- Go Native! perennials. (GNP) For information go to: gonativeperennials.com

October Rose Farm animals are raised without medications including antibiotics, are never crowded and are allowed to forage naturally.
