Down home, family friendly atmosphere
Morgan’s Half Acre Produce is a family friendly shop with easy parking and a relaxed, down home atmosphere. The shop is handicap accessible and staff are happy to answer your questions about the produce, cooking suggestions, or help you with travel directions! This well-known farm stand also offers locally produced maple syrup and honey as well as a variety of fresh baked pies and shakes made with fruit from their farm, too!
Prior to Morgan’s Half Acre Produce, the building was originally the creamery for Auburn Guernsey Farms in the early to mid-1900s. It was later known as “The Stage Stop”- a country store with homemade ice cream in the 1980s and a restaurant under various owners in the 1990s.
Morgan’s Half Acre Produce is owned by two farm families that decided to go into business together in 2005 and use this terrific location in the heart of the Finger Lakes to retail the fruits and vegetables they grow on their individual farms.
Owner, Kelli Morgan began selling sweet corn in a small temporary stand in the corner of the parking lot in 1992, occasionally accompanied by some fresh juicy peaches from her college friend, Ned Morgan’s farm in Marion, NY. From there the seeds of success were planted!
Kelli grows 90% of the vegetables sold in the market and manages the store while her husband Bill keeps very busy running a dairy farm in Union Springs, NY. Kelli grew up selling sweet corn and pumpkins at her parents’ farm and is the third generation to combine produce sales with the dairy industry. She enjoys the close connections with customers and the opportunity to work outdoors growing and harvesting crops as well as marketing them directly to the consumer. The whole Morgan family gets involved with daughters Jessica as a sales assistant and baker and Rachel (who is now a NYC advertising and art director) advising on social media and website updates. Bill and Kelli share equipment and crop expertise growing crops on their land for the cows and the market. Farmers first, both families are glad to be involved in agriculture and feeding people in both their local communities and around the world.
Morgan’s Half Acre Produce is fortunate to always have a fresh, open-air atmosphere. The social media presence informs customers of what is in season. Orders for large quantities of produce or for specific baked items like their favorite pies made to order are always welcomed!
