The Czajkowski family sure does have a green thumb! Lakeside Organics of Hadley was founded by John Czajkowski and originally grew tobacco, potatoes, and cucumbers. Today, Joe (pictured above) runs the farm and also operates Joe Czajkowski Farm, while his brother Wally operates his own neighboring farm! Joe has been able to process some of his produce by selling peeled and chopped butternut squash and carrot sticks. From June to July, his farm opens up to customers who want to pick their own strawberries!
