About

Shimmering Light Farm is a small scale ecologically-grown vegetable operation located in South Bristol, NY. We abide by the Farmer's Pledge, a philosophical belief set forth by the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York (NOFA-NY) which states that “farmers should work in harmony with natural forces and leave the little piece of the world over which they have stewardship in better condition than when they found it.”

In accordance with this pledge we also believe that, “Knowing your farmer is the best assurance that the food you buy is responsibly grown with methods that recognize the inherent implications of the web of life in all our individual actions.” We encourage you to contact our farmer for more information or to arrange a personal visit to our farm.



Farmer Profile: Tanya Rogers

Like many current beginning farmers, Tanya's path to farming was not quite direct. She is a native of the Canandaigua area, where she originally received an A.S. in Environmental Science from Finger Lakes Community College in 2001. Tanya then moved on to pursue a B.S. in Wildlife Science in 2006 and a M.S. in Conservation Biology in 2009, both from SUNY-Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, NY. Her original dreams were to focus on tiger conservation, although through her experience living amongst subsistence farmers in India, Tanya decided to take a more direct approach to conservation, through active sustainable agriculture.

Land-use practices world-wide and our daily lifestyle choices severely impact the ecological integrity of our planet. It is through food, that Tanya hopes to raise awareness of our connections with the environment, the ecological impacts of our actions and encourage a more restorative way of life, one which promotes the conservation of all species, including our own!
