Farming Status and Plans

Farming status:

Not currently farming

Description of farming status, plans, and practices:

More than 8 million people in and around New York City rely on local farms for their food every day.  And yet, in the heart of the Hudson Valley, great farms are being threatened daily— by real estate development, by big business agriculture, by the real financial burden of responsible farming.  

Our mission is to support local farmers, to help New York rediscover the purity of fresh food and ultimately create an oasis from city life, where a community, cultivated by a shared love for the land, can take root and grow.
