New Kitchen Building:  We Broke Ground!

   

The blueprints are off the drawing board, the foundation is poured, and we are underway! The farm will have a new warming kitchen and rest room building in 2017 — with your help.

We still need to raise some funds.

This is a great way to make a difference with a financial contribution to something tangible and permanent.  This structure will upgrade our physical plant and will allow us to host catered affairs, do light food and meal prep for the store and events, provide the modern conveniences for staff and visitors, and more.

Click the link below to help us build in 2017! 

You can also mail a check to the Nassau Land Trust, 2417 Jericho Turnpike, Garden City Park, NY 11040.  All contributions are 100% tax deductible.  The NLT is a New York State 501(c)(3) non-profit.  We receive no public money for running the farm and must therefore raise all funds necessary for operations and capital improvements.  Our break-even annual operating budget is about $250,000.

Opening Day and Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 22nd at Crossroads!

What better way to celebrate Mother Earth than to join in the celebration and activities at your local organic farm. They’ll be plenty of family friendly activities, food, beverages and much more. Mark your calendar, more details to follow soon!


Last season Crossroads farm embarked on a huge undertaking using biodegradable paper mulch to reduce weeds and moisture loss in our fields. Paper mulch adds carbon back into the soil as it degrades and there’s no waste like when using plastic mulch. The drawbacks were that it had to be manually applied and was hugely labor intensive.
This year Crossroads Farm’s own Innovator – Brian Lewis has fabricated equipment that will make it much easier to apply paper mulch to our fields. We are grateful for all of Brian’s ingenuity, hard work, and commitment to the farm again this season!
