Erie County Legislator Joe Lorigo spent Friday morning touring a new, yet to be named farm operated by East Aurora native Daniel Roelofs. Roelofs, originally of Arden Farms, raises livestock and grows a variety of organic herbs and vegetables featured in local restaurants and stores. Legislator Lorigo helped install the frame for a new greenhouse during his visit.
“Thank you to Dan for allowing me to help put the frame up for the new greenhouse today,” said Legislator Lorigo. “It’s always insightful to talk to our farmers about the issues that affect them and the ways that the county can help support our local farms. I’m excited to see the opening of Dan’s new farm and encourage everyone to buy local products in support of our farmers!”
