PRODUCE, FLOWERS, HERBS & HOPS
Obercreek Farm is a USDA Certified Organic farm located in the hamlet of Hughsonville in the Town of Wappinger, NY and has been in production since 2013. We grow diversified vegetables for our 250 Member CSA, wholesale accounts in the Hudson Valley and New York City, Farmers Markets, and for our onsite Farm Stand. We grow outside during the season and in four passive solar greenhouses year round.
In addition to the vegetable production, Obercreek has a half-acre hop yard and a quarter acre perennial herb garden. When weather turns too cold to grow food in the field we keep the farm alive by growing specialty baby greens in the solar greenhouses. We grow all of our certified organic produce and herbs on a total of 14 acres in rotation throughout the main growing season.
We are a group of young farmers with a passion for hard work that brings health and sustainability to our community, ourselves, and our soil. We focus on providing high quality produce to our community while providing our farmers a fair and sustainable wage. We are dedicated to preserving the natural integrity of our land by nurturing a biologically diverse environment. We want to foster a place where the community can come together to teach, learn, experience, and celebrate life in the Hudson Valley.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is agriculture supported by a community in which members will buy a share from the farm prior to the growing season in order to support the farmers throughout the growing season. The member will get a share every week for 22-24 weeks (usually June thru October) of local and certified organic produce. The shares consist of vegetables, and herbs all harvested fresh! In addition to a CSA share, members are invited to our UPick fields once a week to partake in the harvest of flowers, and herbs!
Joining our CSA means you become a part of our community. We share with you the weekly harvest from the fields and together we share in the risks and rewards each season has to offer. Being a part of our CSA means we are able to support each other, our local food system, and the integrity of the land.
We are a USDA Certified Organic Farm and follow only organic growing practices. . We strive to provide high quality, fresh, seasonal produce by enriching and maintaining the health of our soils, water quality and air through our farming practices. By using practices such as composting, cover cropping and companion planting, we are able to encourage our crops and soils to produce and maintain high fertility. Our crops are grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or GMO (genetically modified organisms) and are grown outside as well as in our four passive solar greenhouses year round.
We are dedicated to preserving the natural integrity of our land by nurturing a biologically diverse environment. We want to foster a place where the community can come together to teach, learn, experience, and celebrate life in the Hudson Valley. In addition we pride ourselves on being able to provide and support our farmers with a fair and sustainable living wage.
We are certified through the Northeast Organic Farming Association: New York Division
