About Organic Apples
"At Westwind Orchard, our apples taste better because of where they are grown. We are proud to say that we believe our apples taste better than any commercial apples you’ve tasted so far. Why? Well, in addition to where they are grown, it’s because of how we grow them - we only use organic and holistic methods to control insects and diseases. We only use natural fertilizers such as compost, fish liquids, and seaweed to build their fertility and healthfulness. And it is for these reasons, and lots of TLC, that our gorgeous “ancient” and our modern, high-tech trees give us the most flavorful fruit around.

"We grow old New England apple varieties like Cortlands, McIntosh, Stayman, and Idared, as well as standards like Red and Golden Delicious, to complement newer Macouns and Spartans. And we are planting more trees of newer varieties every year."

  Rusty Plough Farm, a NOFA-NY Certified Organic CSA offering vegetables, flowers & berries, is located at 331 Dowe Road, Ellenville, NY 12428, Ulster County in the mid-Hudson Valley.

From Rusty Plough Farm: "Way back in days of old, little Oleh spent summers in Shokan, NY, enjoying the change from life in New York City. The girls wouldn’t allow him to hang with them, so he spent his days saving little seedlings from the mulch pile, as Babtsia Kurochka (“Grandma Hen”) tended her garden. Encouraged by his early successes with these seemingly doomed plants, he dreamed of someday tending his own little plot of land.

"The 1980s found Oleh toiling away in the computer software industry of Manhattan, getting away on the weekends to his country hideaway in Ulster Heights. There he created his own little veggie garden behind the old farmstead. What a perfect excuse to start amassing lots of machinery and 'toys' to fill up the barn. Soon the barn filled up and the garden grew to exploding.

"Fast-forward to 1988, when Oleh meets Nadia. A Jersey City girl, Nadia did know a bit about farming and country living, from spending her summers in Lexington, NY where she occasionally helped her aunt in the veggie garden. And she did help her dad around the house growing up, handing tools and such. And she could drive a manual transmission. Oh, and she was working as an archaeologist, so the digging-in-the-dirt part was familiar. This also helped her to appreciate the potential beauty hidden behind the plywood paneling of the old farmhouse. Oleh, knowing a good thing when he found her, proposed . . . In 2003, we moved to the farm, committed to growing and marketing our organic produce full-time."

845-895-7433 
  Brookside Farm, a NOFA-NY certified farm, offering grass-fed products, is located at 1278 Albany Post Road, Gardiner, NY 12525 in Ulster County.

From Brookside Farm: "Brookside Farm is family owned and operated; our farm is committed to the production of healthy, delicious food without the use of hormones, antibiotics or pesticides. We go beyond organic, incorporating management intensive grazing methods (daily rotation to fresh pasture) for our livestock, pasturing or free ranging all poultry and raising all our pigs on a ration of 100% organic grain. Our goal is to provide a gourmet quality, healthy alternative to industrialized food."

Old Fashioned Farming
"Our farm is committed to the production of healthy, delicious food without the use of hormones, antibiotics or pesticides."

    No Antibiotics
    Husbandry skills are key to keeping animals healthy, happy and producing a gourmet product. To that end the daily rotation to fresh pasture, the organic mineral supplements and the North Atlantic Sea Kelp all support a healthy environment and immune system that allow us to forego the use of antibiotics. Additionally in the case of cows most feed lots administer antibiotics as part of the cows daily life, to prevent disease that’s caused by their diet of corn and the confined living conditions. Cows are ruminants and their multiple stomachs were never intended to consume corn. They are specifically designed to digest grasses and legumes found in pastures.

    No Pesticides
    Flies begin laying their eggs in cow manure as soon as the dung hits the ground. Approximately three days later the fly eggs in the manure pies, hatch into larvae. Before the larvae turn into flies we bring the Egg Layers into the area with all the manure and they scratch at the pies to eat the fly larvae and many other insects. This eliminates the need for pesticides; the chicken’s spread the manure naturally when scratching at the dung so there is no need for fuel to operate a machine to do the same job the chickens do and the chickens produce the world’s most nutritious egg.

    No Hormones
    We never use Hormones, as a result our products take longer to finish but there are no short cuts in producing a gourmet quality product.

Facts about Grass-Fed

  • A major benefit of raising animals on pasture is that their products are healthier for you.


  • Meat from grass-fed beef, bison, lamb and goats has less total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and calories.


  • Research shows that lean beef actually lowers your "bad" LDL cholesterol levels.


  • Extra Omega-3s. Meat from grass-fed animals has two to four times more omega-3 fatty acids than meat from grain- fed animals.


  • Eggs from hens raised outdoors on pasture have from three to six times more vitamin D than eggs from hens raised in confinement.


  • People who are exposed to farm chemicals have a much greater rate of Parkinson’s Disease, according to recent studies. Whether they are farm workers who are applying the chemicals or people who happen to live nearby.


  • Eggs from free-range hens are higher in folic acid and vitaminB12.

    845-255-3088 
      Four Winds Farm, a CSA farm offering organic produce and grass-fed meat, is located at 158 Marabac Road, Gardiner NY 12525, Southern Ulster County in the Hudson Valley.

    From Four Winds Farm: "Four Winds Farm is a 24 acre diversified organic farm located in Gardiner, in southern Ulster County, of which 4 acres are used to grow vegetables, primarily heirloom and open pollinated varieties for better flavor and for seed saving. The remainder is used to raise lamb, beef and egg laying chickens, which supply us generously with natural fertilizer. Our farm-generated manure compost allows us to grow vegetables using a method that is very different from conventional farms.

    Organic Farming
    Our garden space is never plowed or rototilled. We grow our vegetables in permanently formed beds, some of which have been in place for 10 years. We then spread compost on top of the beds, and plant seeds and transplants directly into the compost. The plant roots and compost nutrients move down into the soil where there is a healthy, thriving community of soil organisms. We find that this technique reduces overall weed pressure and gives us better-tasting vegetables that keep longer in the refrigerator.

    Second Wind CSA
    Second Winds CSA returns in the capable hands of Wes Hannah and Bryn Roshong. With Jay as their guide, they continue to farm in the tradition of Four Winds, using an organic no-till method. Since tractors are rarely used, this method of farming leaves a very small carbon footprint, and the resulting superior soil health results in great-tasting, healthy vegetables. You can taste the difference.

      Pastured Meat
      Beef: Our cows are 100% grass-fed, eating pasture and hay, not grain. Grass is the diet nature intended for ruminants, and the one on which they do best.

      Our animals are Rotationally Grazed from early April until late December. In Rotational Grazing, groups of animals are placed on small areas of pasture for a short period of time (commonly 3 days or less), after which they are moved to fresh pasture. This mimics the natural system in which ruminants graze, spreads manure out over a large area rather than concentrating it, and allows the pasture to rest and regrow. In addition, multiple species can graze together, and since each species has different grazing preferences, both pasture utilization and health increase. In the winter, they eat a rich grass and legume hay, purchased from a local farm.

    845-339-2731 
      Slow Roots Farm, specializing in organically grown vegetables in accord with Farmers Pledge, is located at 205 Hidden Valley Road, Kingston, NY 12401, Ulster County in the mid-Hudson Valley.

    From Slow Roots Farm: "This Wednesday October 10 marks the last summer pickup at the farm but the harvest will continue for a while as the fall share begins next week. I wanted to thank all of you for participating in this summer season and for handling the assortment of produce with openness and grace. I know it takes special people to open a weird basement door and be surprised each week with what you’ll be eating. I hope you enjoyed being creative and were able to avoid some trips to the grocery store, a much weirder place, as a result. Please know that you are a huge part of how I make a living and that this relationship is so vital to the way Slow Roots Farm operates. Stay in touch, I hope to see all of you soon."

    Farmers Pledge
    The Farmers Pledge seeks to describe sustainable practices in a document that growers can attest is an accurate description of how they farm. It serves as a bridge between consumers and farmers who value healthy food, strong local economies, fair working conditions and wages, the humane treatment of animals, and care of the land.

    CSA 2013 - Vegetables
    "Over 250 varieties of vegetables will be grown for the 2013 season with selection based on flavor, nutrition, vitality, beauty, reliability and diversity. All the essential vegetables are grown and offered with the exception of corn and sweet potatoes, I am getting there. I also grow more unique crops like kohlrabi, okra, tatsoi, hon tsai tai, and tomatillos as well. Over twenty-five different varieties of tomatoes and lettuce are grown as well as dozens of varieties of peppers, eggplants and chilies. So expect not only tasty, high quality produce but some unlikely shapes and colors as well. The produce varies with the season and the weather and each week will bring new tastes to your home. Experience the difference of nutritious vegetables that were harvested just hours before you pick them up. It really is impossible to get fresher produce unless you grow it yourself. I am always available for feedback and suggestions and can make adjustments when appropriate."

    Press blue button for more about CSA Distribution, Price and Membership information, and Jacob Diaz at Slow Roots Farm.

    Community Supported Agriculture
    "CSA is an arrangement in which the farmer asks the consumer to pay at the beginning of the season for a weekly distribution of vegetables. The member assumes some risk by paying upfront for an undisclosed amount of food and the farmer takes a chance by promising vegetables before they are harvested.

    "The relationship is based on health and trust and the benefits go well beyond those that can be quantified in monetary terms alone. Members enjoy access to fresh, nutritious, organically grown produce at lower than market costs. They also have the opportunity to develop a relationship with the source and purveyor of that food. The farmer gains a guaranteed market for his product and much needed capital at a vulnerable time of year. The vision of keeping farms growing and growers farming has far reaching impacts on the health of land, community, individual and planet.

    "This model is not for everyone as it is a little different from how most Americans are used to acquiring their food. I believe that you will come to fully embrace these differences and I know that your body will. Please consider the responsibilities and rewards and decide if a CSA is right for you. I look forward to the opportunity of growing your food and sharing stories of weather, wonder and culinary delights with you."

      Huguenot Street Farm, offering CSA memberships, is located at 205 Huguenot Street, New Paltz NY 12561, Ulster County in the Hudson Valley.

    From Huguenot Street Farm: "Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is where members of the community buy a "share" in a local farm for one season. Shares are paid for in advance and the members then get access to a portion of the farmers harvest from June into November."

    "Our CSA distributions generally run 22 weeks from the first week in June through October with make-up and additional optional weeks in early November. The CSA distributes fruits and vegetables only. We also have a great U-Pick selection that includes flowers, berries, peppers, and beans. Last year we offered eggs and cheese from local farms, but those would be bought separately as we've done previously with bread. This year we also looking to experiment with extending the season by growing extra late season root crops.

    "While we have a strong belief that food in the U.S. is TOO CHEAP (meaning that consumer expectations for low vegetable prices encourage agri-business "efficiency" and all the health and environmental issues that come with it), we are also committed to providing food locally at below supermarket prices. Our CSA is geared towards the regular folks in our community, and it is important to us that it remains affordable.

    "There are NO WORKING MEMBER requirements, although there are plenty of optional "help us out" days which we'll email you about as the season progresses. There is no price advantage to helping us - it's just fun."

    About U-Pick

    Access to the U-Pick garden is "practically unlimited." That means you can take what YOUR FAMILY will eat in one week. If you want MORE for freezing or canning, just check with us first. 95% of the time, we encourage it! Folks that are splitting shares should limit themselves to what their one family would normally be able to pick.

    Certified Naturally Grown
    Certified Naturally Grown is a grassroots effort by 300 farms across the county to provide a more credible alternative to the USDA Organic program for small, diversified farmers.

    Farmers commit to the following practices in growing your food:

  • Absolutely NO use of synthetic chemical insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, or fertilizer on our crops or fields.


  • Minimal and careful use of even Organically approved soil amendments and sprays.


  • Care for our soil, water and air quality with crop rotations, cover crops, protective buffer strips and ecologically sustainable farming practices.


  • NO use of chemically treated or Genetically Modified seeds.


  • Humane treatment of livestock including the use of NO hormones or antibiotic-laced feed and consistent access to pasture.


  • Follow sanitary post-harvest practices including proper transport, storage and the use of only potable water for the washing of produce.


  • To pass on the land and surrounding environment in an even better condition than it was passed on to us.


  • We grow this way because we care about our families’ and workers’ health, the health of our friends and customers purchasing and enjoying our food, and because we want to be good, sustainable stewards of the small portion of this earth that has temporarily been put under our care.

    Certified Naturally Grown is supported by National Environmental Groups, Health Organizations and Sustainable Agricultural groups including: The National Cancer Awareness Coalition, The Sierra Club’s Atlantic Chapter and the International Federation of Organic Agricultural Movements.

      The Phillies Bridge Farm Project is located at 45 Phillies Bridge Road, New Paltz, NY 12561 in Ulster County.

    From Phillies Bridge: "Phillies Bridge Farm Project was founded in 1995 by a group of dedicated volunteers. We now feed hundreds of community members and engage over 2,500 people each year in the wonders of food production through our CSA, education, and community outreach programs. Our site includes about five acres of diversified vegetables, a children’s Discovery Garden, and a blazed nature trail that wanders through wetlands, woodlands, and pastures.

    "Our programs make learning come alive for people of all ages and backgrounds in the Hudson Valley Region. Every year, we feed our CSA shareholders and share the harvest with struggling area residents with fresh vegetables grown on the farm using organic practices. We educate local school children about the wonders of farming and train beginning farmers in the techniques of small-scale sustainable agriculture. We connect people of all ages to the sources of their food through our education programs, community events, and outreach efforts.

    "Our programs impact a large geographical area, from New York City to Albany, with a focus on Ulster County where the farm is located. Participants include homeless teenagers, second home-owners, local families, single parents, area farm-workers, and everyone in between."

    “My son came home after his field trip and told me I had to get some cabbage. I couldn’t believe it, he usually doesn’t eat vegetables.”-Parent of Kindergartner

    845-256-1592 
      Talliaferro Farms, a CSA offering certified organic produce, is located at 187 Plains Road, New Paltz NY 12561, Ulster County in the Hudson Valley.

    From Taliaferro Farms: "This is our version of what is commonly called Community Supported Agriculture, or in short, CSA. It is the bringing together of community members, farmers, and agricultural land in a relationship of mutual support based on annual commitment to one another — a commitment that ensures the survival of local agriculture today and for future generations.

    How it all works
    "The people agree to purchase a share of the anticipated crop. The farmer agrees to supply the people with a fresh assortment of high quality, in our case, certified organic produce. The shareholders commitment implies a willingness to share with the farmer the bounty from the land, and, some of the risks of its production.

    Our Objective
    "To provide certified organic home grown farm fresh vegetables, fruits, and other agricultural foods to persons and families in the community. We offer a healthy choice of many of the standard produce varieties as well as many interesting and unique produce and products. We grow all of our vegetables and fruits using certified organic methods. The fruits we grow include: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, apples and lots of melons.

    "Crops are planted in succession to provide a continuous weekly supply of mixed vegetables chosen for flavor, nutritional value and to support bio-diversity through crop rotation. We grow more than 90 different varieties of vegetables, so the shareholders can expect a wide variety of items in their weekly shares. Becoming a shareholder in a CSA program has many benefits for all involved. Your interest and investment will help support small farms and their ideologies. You will see directly what your food dollars are being used for. You will be in direct contact with your food producer to ask questions about farming and the farm. I feel that people will find the CSA concept refreshing, instead of being many times removed from knowing when, where or how your food was produced. An actively producing farm with sustainability and economic growth on their agenda makes use of many local services and products. Supporting this helps keep a local economy stimulated and maintains easy access to healthy fresh food sources."

    About Taliaferro Farms
    "My wife and I purchased the land for our farm in the fall of 1995. This was the first step towards the reality of a dream come true and the beginning of a lot of hard work. I had spent the last 35 years working for some of the best people in the agricultural industry in our region. Taliaferro Farms is a culmination of experiences and knowledge gleaned throughout those years. Our whole family, sons Peter and Ian, daughter Delaney, my wife Robin and myself participate in all aspects of running the farm."

      Acorn Hill Farmstead Cheese, a family run micro-creamery, is located in Walker Valley, NY 12588, Ulster County in the mid-Hudson Valley region of New York.

    From Acorn Hill Farmstead: Acorn Hill Farmstead Cheese is a family run micro-creamery. "We firmly believe in the value of local food sources and sustainable agriculture. We follow organic farming and herd management practice and have taken the NOFA-NY Farmers' Pledge. The goats are free to browse the weeds and trees and are given organic grain at milking time. Each goat is an individual who is named, respected, and loved. We believe that happy goats are healthy goats that produce milk that makes delicious cheese."

    The Birth of Acorn Hill Farm
    "The birth of Acorn Hill Farm was the result of a series of wonderful accidents. The purchase of a property with a barn followed by the discovery that a goat farm was located only minutes away started it all. I had fallen in love with goats years earlier and dreamed of having goats of my own. After adjusting some things about the barn we brought home our first two goats with the intention of having organic milk, yogurt, and cheese for the family. It never crossed my mind that a business was in the making but fate had other plans.

    "A friend had been helping organize a new farmers market in a nearby town and started talking to me about selling my cheeses at the market. Those conversations started a process that would take years to complete. When I set out on the path toward building a creamery very small scale facilities were a relatively new idea in New York. Large dairy farms have been common in New York and those farms primarily ship milk to be processed and packaged for sale in supermarkets. The concept that a small farm could safely store milk and produce cheese on site required open minded innovation on both my part and that of the state. Finally after what seemed like forever the cheeseroom was completed and the new milking parlor built and we went into production. We added some does to the herd and sold at two local farmers' markets in the beginning. Since then the milk line has grown to approximately 25 does and we sell year round at several regional farmers' markets. In addition we work with CSA programs offering our dairy products to their members, sell at select retail locations and our cheeses appear on local restaurant menus."
