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 seasonal vegetables, flower, herbs and hops on plans maximizing our growing space through efficient and thoughtful growing techniques that require less land to achieve higher farm productivity and financial sustainability without compromising the health of our agricultural ecosystems and our farmers.
We serve a 100 member CSA, our onsite farm stand and several wholesale accounts in the Hudson Valley and New York City. We grow all of our certified organic produce and herbs on a total of 4 acres in rotation on a 14 acre property throughout the main growing season and utilize cover crops and compost to regenerate fields with the goal of not purchasing outside sources of fertilizers or organic amendments. Through the utilization of ½ acre of indoor production space, we are able to achieve continuous year round production to provide additional income for the farmers and farm for the benefit and enjoyment of our community.
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 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 produce high quality, seasonal vegetables, flowers, herbs and hops while maximizing our growing space through efficient and thoughtful growing techniques that require less land to achieve higher farm productivity and financial sustainability without compromising the health of our agricultural ecosystems and our farmers. 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 certified through the Northeast Organic Farming Association: New York Division
