Volunteers Needed for General Planting and More!

The new growing season is upon us. The rain and cold weather has delayed our transplanting, planting and seeding. Now we need your help to get the farm green and growing.

We could use help planting, transplanting, direct seeding and also laying down the new paper mulch that will prevent weeds. There are several days when you can help, please click on the link below to view the dates and sign up.

You can work as little or as long as you want, we’re always grateful for the help you provide.

The farm thrives on community support.  We look forward to seeing you back at the farm!

Organically Produced Compost

We are producing our own compost from horse manure.

The material is certified organic for our farm use and is available for your garden or business in small amounts (5 gallons) and in large amounts by the cubic yard.  Buy online or at the store and pick up from the farm.  The production process is a great example of sustainable interaction between two farms, ours and the New York Equestrian Center stables in West Hempstead.


All of us look forward to seeing you around the farm!
