Juneberry Festival

  • Thursday, June 29, 2017, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

On a locally run farm just east of Seneca Lake, the largest crop of Juneberries in New York State is about to be ripe. Growing beside the raspberries, blackberries, honey berries, black currants and figs that Juneberry Farm offers for visitors to pick and purchase, this fruit - which isn’t a berry at all - gives the farm its name for good reason.

For those curious about Juneberries, Juneberry Farm’s Guy Lister is joining with SCCCE to host a Juneberry Festival where visitors can discover recipes and information about Juneberries, sample the fruit, tour the farm and pick their own berries, and try Juneberry pie.

Interested in growing juneberries yourself? Bundschuh's Greenhouses will be selling 1-gallon potted Juneberry plants.

The Buffalonian Food Truck will also be offering authentic Western NY themed cuisine during the event, including Juneberry dessert pierogies.
