As of 2016, Growing Family Farms is USDA Certified Organic by NOFA-NY LLC!
Growing Family Farms produces vegetables, fruit, eggs*, and pasture-raised chicken** on 6 sandy acres central to Rochester’s west-side communities of Hilton, Greece, Spencerport, and Parma.
Longtime friends Paul Loomis and Chris Flagg started hobby farming many years ago on a heavily wooded flood plain in Hilton with many stories to tell of trial, error, success, and lessons learned. In 2012 we moved to the beautiful space on Peck Road where production has increased and improved every year since.
What began as a mission to feed ourselves and our families has become a growing business committed to producing high quality food and building a strong local food system. As of 2016, Growing Family Farms is USDA Certified Organic, and has always operated with care for the soil, the animals, and the community.

Thank you to Lisa Barker Photography for many of the photos shown on this website and through promotional materials. The farm seems to look best through your lens!
*Eggs are pending Organic certification and have been raised following all USDA Organic regulations, on rotating pasture supplemented with Organic Feed.
**Broiler production is a limited and infrequent portion of our production. When we do raise broiler chickens (chickens raised for their meat) they are raised on pasture on Certified Organic Feed, and processed at a facility that also processes non-certified meat. It is a family-run business that returns an excellent product at a fair price.
We thrive through partnering with several local businesses and organizations. Here are a few of the notables:
