About Us


Go directly to the farm that's been in East Syracuse since 1925

Vollmer Farms is a family farm that has been in its current location since 1925. It was purchased by Bennett Vollmer at the age of 25.  It was here that he and his wife grew vegetables with the the help of his three sons. Eventually two of the sons took over the farm and also began to grow ornamental plants along with their vegetable starter plants. Bennett's grandson, Dave, now runs the vegetable farm and greenhouses along with some very dedicated employees. 


Less handling and locally grown means less exposure to germs and the coronavirus.

Our customers come back year after year because they know that our plants are healthier and more acclimated to the ups and downs of Syracuse weather. They haven't been shipped in from all over the country. Because our plants have been moved less and are locally grown they have been not been exposed to germs and multiple handlers from other parts of the country. 


Our open, outdoor farm means that you can social distance while still being able to pick out your own plants.

Our number one concern is the safety of our team members and our customers. Our farm's existing open air design will be enhanced even more this year with the opportunity for you to purchase your vegetable bedding plants, annuals, perennials and herbs outside our greenhouses with 6 foot distancing practices in place.  This allows you to still pick out your own plants and enjoy your experience, while still practicing Coronavirus distancing habits.
