Amherst Participates in Farm to School
We are excited to announce that we are partnered with Quarry Hill Orchards, a local apple orchard in neighboring Erie County to source our local fresh apples for the 2015-2016 school year. The apple farmers at Quarry Hill Orchards will be able to assist us with 10 different tasty, delicious, crispy and juicy apple varieties on the menu from August through early spring. Quarry Hill Orchards already works with several grocery stores and has a reputation for quality service and keeps regular food safety as one of their top priorities. We are hoping to expand the program with other fresh produce selections the following school year. For more information about our students' apples, go to the Quarry Hill Orchards website!
