From the creators of


As the daughter and granddaughter of farmers, Julie Blackman is no stranger to hard work. From helping run Blackman Homestead in Cambria, New York, the farm that’s been in her family for six generations, to working for two decades in the healthcare industry, she doesn’t shy away from putting her all into something.

On a mission to provide rural offerings to urban consumers, she created Farmers & Artisans in 2009. Located at 4557 Main Street, Snyder, New York, her storefront features locally and regionally grown and produced dairy products, bakery items, chef- prepared foods, pastured meats and eggs, fresh produce, artisan cheeses, pantry items and sustainable seafood offerings.

Julie’s deep knowledge of the Western New York food scene and her commitment to connecting producers and consumers year-round led her to create the Farmhouse Fridge, a small-kiosk, contactless vending machine featuring the freshest flavors from the region.

Crafted daily and restocked weekly or as needed, Julie and her team put the energy in to creating flavorful, wholesome and nourishing foods that taste like you made them at home.

Creating a healthy community.

The Farmhouse Fridge was brought to Western New York thanks to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and the Healthy Workplace Initiative. The BNMC team works diligently to bring more healthy, local food options to offices and workplaces on the Medical Campus and beyond, and the “smart fridge” concept was one big step forward in addressing this gap.

The tastes of home,
no matter your location.
