ALLEGANY, NY — Canticle Farm will continue offering curbside service and limiting the indoor shop to five customers during its weekly Tuesday noon-6 p.m. farm market at 3809 Old State Road.

In a Monday email, Sister Melissa Scholl, farm president, wrote, "A big thank you to the five volunteers who assisted at the CF Market on Tuesday.  With only five at a time shopping and increased curb service your help made everything move smoothly.  Volunteers continue to be needed. If you are comfortable working with people from a socially responsible distance, come for an hour or two ...  You will make a difference."

She continued, "My role as greeter and curbside shopper last week was energizing and a challenge. Staff was fully engaged. It is obvious we need to ask for volunteer help."
