Potatoes and Molasses, which made its debut Saturday, May 20, at an open house and customer appreciation event hosted by Lune Chocolat, in Manlius, is operated by Kendra and Paul Porter. Since 1996, they’ve been growing organic produce on their 200-acre farm in Seneca Falls and five-acre field in Skaneateles.
“What makes our food truck a little bit different is what we prepare on the food truck is what we have grown on the farm,” Kendra says.
Black Brook offers a community support agriculture (CSA) subscription that provides consumers a weekly share of produce fresh from the farm. The CSA runs June to November and includes everything from spring onions to winter squashes.
You may have seen and met the Porters at the Skaneateles Farmers Market, where customers make a beeline for their bountiful and beautifully presented produce displays. Their specialties include fingerling potatoes, heirloom tomatoes and varieties of melons, mushrooms and corn that you don’t normally find at the grocery store. They also supply produce for chef and restaurant clients, including The Krebs in Skaneateles and Belhurst Castle and the Red Dove Tavern, in Geneva.
