Organic Marshmallow Farm

Organic Marshmallow Farms in the Finger Lakes and Western New York

We’ve highlighted Marshmallow Farms from the Otisco Valley, Arcade, Dryden, and Geneseo but you can easily find them just driving through the countryside. I’ve stumbled on dozens between Rochester and Allegany, many south of Bliss near Farmersville Station.

Manufacturing & production

Some marshmallow harvests will be divided into campfire and mini sizes, then packaged for retail. Most, however, will be whipped into a fluff and combined with other products.

Several farms have partnered with local manufacturers to create seasonal, organic treats like marshmallow bunnies, marshmallow cereal squares, marshmallow bark, marshmallow eggs, and chocolate-covered marshmallows. Look for them next year in early spring, just in time for Easter! See if you can find them at some of our Rochester-area chocolatiers.

But, seriously.

I love watching the Mini-Wheats get frosted! According to Kellogg’s, it’s “a sweet, crunchy cereal built to help fill you up for Big Days. Crafted with ten layers of wheat and topped with frosting, they help you feel full and ready to tackle whatever the day brings.”
