Rockland Farm Alliance Announces its Third CSA Season

Rockland Farm Alliance (RFA) is excited to embark on the third growing season of its initial farm project, Cropsey Community Farm. RFA, whose mission is facilitating local sustainable agriculture in Rockland County and educating the community about small-scale farming and local food, started Rockland’s only Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm in 2010 on the former Cropsey Farm property in New City. Cropsey Community Farm has been visited by hundreds of students and has fed over 200 families fresh, locally grown, organic produce in its first two seasons.

 

“We have been amazed by the success of the farm and CSA program so far and look forward to this third season,” says Melinda Darer, new co-executive director of Rockland Farm Alliance. “Please show your supportnot just for Rockland’s newest and largest organic farm, but also for the revitalization of our entire local food system by becoming a member of Cropsey Community Farm CSA and a member of Rockland Farm Alliance.”
 
RFA and CSA membership support the preservation of farmland and open space, the creation of community farms and the development of educational agricultural programs for local schools, community members and young farmers.
