About Us / Fresh-Ayr Farm Market History: Seasonal farm market offering a wide variety of garden plants and perennials, locally grown fresh produce, gifts and an in-store bakery. Open daily 9am-6pm May 1-Oct. 31. \n\nWe are the Ayres family, farmers for over 30 years. We grow high quality berries, sweet corn, pumpkins, gourds, hay, straw, soy beans and wheat in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of central New York.\n\nAs stewards of the land, we practice no till and zone tillage on all our acres, and use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices to minimize the use of pesticides to insure the highest quality in everything we produce. We have been using zone tillage and no till for over 13 years to build soil health, and our farm is often a stop on farm tours showcasing good soil health practices. George is often asked to speak at farmer meetings about zone tillage and good soil health.\n\nWe have also been growing cover crops on fields after regular crops are harvested. Cover crops, like oats, rye, tillage radishes, and clover protect the soil, recover left over nutrients, and build soil organic matter. We believe cover crops are the heart of successful no till agricultural production.
