Together We are Obercreek Farm
Obercreek Farm is a 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 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 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.
What is a C.S.A?
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 20-22 weeks (usually June thru November) of local and certified organic produce. The shares consist of vegetables, and some fruits all harvested fresh! In addition to a CSA share, members are invited to our Pick-Your-Own (PYO) fields once a week to partake in the harvest and see where their veggies grow. PYO vegetables are different than what we grow in the main fields and usually include crops like: okra, sauce tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, specialty basil, green beans, snap peas, 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.
