Easter Flowers This Weekend at the Farm!

Store hours this weekend:

  • Friday and Saturday from 10 to 6
  • Sunday from 10 to 2

Our 50% off sale for selected items continues. 2016 CSA discount books are available.  Booklets can be purchased online or in the store.  They are a great way to support the farm while getting a store discount on items of your choice.

We will also have a small assortment of our own winter grown vegetables: daikon radish, lettuce, carrots, and arugula.

We have firewood!  Available by the bundle, 1/4 cord, 1/2 cord, and full cord.


Taste of the Farmers Market

Our regular farmers market is moving to Saturday mornings this year!  The market will start in June, but on April 23rd we will be hosting a Taste of the Farmers Market from 10 to 6. This will be a great way to come down to the farm to get a taste of what’s to come.  We have some exciting new vendors participating this year, including the the East End Mushroom Company and others to be announced.


Opening Day 2016

The farm officially opens on May 1st!  Please join the event on Facebook and show your support!  We will have a ribbon cutting, pony rides from the NYEC, hay rides, a bouncy house, live music by Copy Cat, craft vendors, food trucks, beer and wine, and lots of good stuff in the store.


Sunshine Days: Summer Camp Is Back!

Summer camp is coming back with more dates to choose from.  You can reserve days for your child now!  Choose one day, selected days, a week, or 3 weeks.  Prices are reduced if purchased in advance.

Farming is in High Gear

We have an exciting and ambitious growing plan this year. Field prep is well under way and the glass house is brimming with seedlings.

Field manager Stephanie Kane and the fruits of her labors.


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!

With gratitude,
