We aim to raise awareness about the nutritional and environmental advantages of organic farming practices, and inspire a new generation of environmentally and socially responsible farmers.
At our Farm Stand, and through our CSA program and the organizations we serve, we provide nutritional information and healthy recipes for our produce. Our successful apprenticeship program allows new farmers to learn about soil stewardship, sustainable practices, and food systems in a seasonal immersion program.
In 2017, we initiated “Healthy Harvest”, an agriculture-based learning program for preschool students in conjunction with the Eleanor Whitmore Early Childhood Center in East Hampton. Our farmer educators collaborate with the Wellness Foundation and the Cornell Cooperative Extension to develop educational workshops for our partner organizations. These programs range from gardening workshops to bilingual cooking demonstrations with nutritionists using our donated produce.
