New Kitchen Building: Work Continues
There’s so much a buzz at the farm that each day brings new activity.
Dennis and Danny of Scully’s Plumbing & Heating are hard at work getting the house trap installed in the new kitchen building. We are so grateful to all the trades that come here to support our 2017 farm initiatives.
Please help us get the kitchen building completed and make 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.

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.
