Hillside View Produce is located at Rocking W Farm in Gowanda, NY. The farm has been in the Mowry/Hojnacki family since 1880, with a focus on dairy and beef cattle. Dan and Kaytee Hojnacki relocated back to the farm in 2017, where they joined Dan's dad and grandparents. Kaytee's interest and experience with vegetable production lead to the creation of Hillside View Produce in 2019. While we may be a woman-owned and operated business, farming is always a family affair.
Hillside View Produce grows a wide diversity of vegetables, herbs, and cut flowers, with a focus on heirloom and unique varieties. Additionally, we grow shiitake mushrooms, which are grown on logs sustainably harvested from the farm property and produce homemade jam from local fruit. Environmental stewardship is a major facet of the business, providing healthy produce to current generations while preserving land for future generations. Although not certified organic, we follow organic practices while accepting a certain amount of crop loss due to pests, disease, and bad weather.
As we grow and become established in the Western NY community, we will be expanding the variety and quantity of produce we grow. We are open to trying anything at least once and welcome suggestions from community members.
