Welcome Back Breakfast for Returning Volunteers – Saturday, March 24th at 10:30 AM
 
Please join us and your fellow volunteers for a Welcome Back gathering to catch up and discuss plans for the upcoming farm season. We’ll be serving a light breakfast and refreshments. We’ve made some enhancements to our volunteer program to improve your volunteer experience.

Of course, there’s still many of the same  activities including field work, educational activities, and fundraising events, so much of which will be much more successful if you join us!  We’re also using biodynamic farming principles this year, so there’s lot of new farming techniques to learn and apply.

As you know, the farm depends on volunteers…please try to join us as we start the new farm year!

Please sign up here to join us.

There’s also a volunteer work activity directly following the breakfast. We’ll be seeding up trays of flowers in the greeenhouse.

Attention Landscapers and Home Gardeners: We Have Compost!

We produce high-quality organic compost at Crossroads Farm in conjuction with the New York Equestrian Center.  

We have large volumes available at very competitive pricing.  We are motivated to sell! We have more than we can use at the farm. Please contact our Farmstand Manager – Martha at martha@nassaulandtrust.org.


Support Crossroads Farm and Purchase Your 2018 CSA Booklets Today!

Support your local farm by providing revenue before the next growing season. This revenue goes towards the purchase of soil, seeds, and other farming supplies.

Here’s how Crossroads Farm Consumer Supported Agriculture (CSA) works:

  • Purchase your CSA booklet at $50 and receive $55 worth of coupons.
  • Purchase your CSA booklet at $100 and receive $110 worth of coupons.
  • Use your CSA coupons for purchases in the farm stand.

Additionally, customers using their CSA booklets get a 10% discount on all their farm stand purchases.

You may purchase your CSA booklets on-line by by clicking the link below or in the store at Ground Hog Day on February 2nd or in the store when we open in the spring.


Want to get involved?  Want to make a difference at the farm and in your community?  We have a vibrant and well organized volunteer program.  Maybe this is the year for you to get your hands in the dirt and to help sustain this unique and exciting project.  Without volunteers, we couldn’t get all the work done.  We are truly a community effort! We will be enhancing our volunteer program to increase your knowledge of farming. We’ll also teach you some biodynamic principles to use on the farm and apply at your homestead.

Two orientation dates have been set up for the Spring season:  Sat., April 14th and Sun, June 3rd at 10:30 AM.   At these orientations you will learn about the farm and the different activities and opportunities you can participate in.  Please click the link below to sign up.

If you can’t make these dates, we are in the process of creating an orientation video and package that you’ll be able to access via Crossroads website or at the farm. Stay tuned!
