If you want to support your local farm and eat healthy but cannot commit to a full farm share season, you can use the farm stand to purchase one time shares. Once you sign up, you’ll continue to receive notifications when we have one-time shares available.
By growing this produce, the Food Bank is able to fulfill the Patroon Land Foundation’s mission. This unique mission is to preserve the property as farm land and cultivate the land to grow and distribute produce, or the income from the sale of such produce, to feed the poor and hungry. The secondary purpose of the foundation is to offer educational opportunities for students and volunteers so they can learn about agriculture and participate in farming activities. Each year over 2,500 volunteers come to the Farm and help us in our efforts. Additionally, the Farm has worked with many interns and is always eager to develop these relationships in the future.
With help from so many volunteers, the Farm is truly an effort of the community at large. Private donors, corporations, and other organizations continue to support the Farm through financial and/or in-kind contributions. These contributions have allowed the Farm to develop the necessary infrastructure and purchase equipment to improve our operations and fulfill our mission.
