Who we Are
We are a 501c3 non-profit working farm that is dedicated to training and empowering the future farmers in regenerative agriculture while providing fresh healthy produce to our community through a seasonal Farm Stand & customized pick ups from our greenhouse.
Did you know according to the USDA's Agricultural Census conducted in 2017, nearly 1.02 million of America's 3.4 million farmers were above the age of 65? And that over a million more are within a decade of becoming 65 and above?
Our goal is to encourage and teach regenerative growing practices to heal our food system, it's producers, the earth, and the community.
The Board & the Farm
Founded by Anastassia Zabirova in November of 2020, we are striving to provide the community with nutrient dense food and educating our future farmers. The farm is located minutes down the road from Bethel Woods Performing Arts Center in Sullivan County NY.
Anastassia is a farmer of mixed vegetables, fruit, and other crops for over a decade. Her passion for growing began 12 years ago, on a non profit farm through an internship. Also a proud alumni of SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, she had continued to work in agriculture for a multitude of operations during her career.
Allison Turcan, Deb Taft, and Chloe Sasson comprise the farm's board of directors. They hold various positions within the non profit sector, community, music, and farming.
Current Farm News & Updates
What an astounding first season. The farm stand helped us to connect with so many people passionate about locally grown and sustainable food. We really appreciate all the wonderful feedback and can't wait for the 2022 season!
While the stand is shut down for the season, feel free to check out our Products Page on the header tab to select some farm fresh goodies! We offer Saturday on farm pick ups through our greenhouse!
In other news, our second high tunnel has been put up and is growing away with some cold hardy greens for this winter and spring. This unheated space will provide for a jump start on tomatoes and cucumbers for 2022.
This winter we will be lining up some classes and volunteer days for the 2022 growing season. All are welcome, and please be sure to follow us on social media or on our website mailer & announcements to keep up to date on information about the farm.
It's been such a joy to meet and connect with the community in such a meaningful way. Thank you for a wonderful first season, and we can't wait to see what the 2022 season will bring.
