Third-generation farmer John Grzesik, 73, is operating the farmstand in association with Franklin and Frederick Nietupski, owners of farm land on Mammoth Road.

“I allow them to shuck their corn,” she said.
The farmstand has more season to go. Plans call for staying open through October.
Bottomline, business has been very good this summer.
“We’ve been busy every day since we’ve been here,” Campbell said.
