Welcome to the Bayard Cutting CSA Farm!
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is made up of members who share in the costs and responsibilities of running a farm and who receive in return a share in the harvest. Founded in the Fall of 2011, The Bayard Cutting Arboretum CSA Farm is the only Community Supported Agriculture project in the New York State Parks system. In keeping with the mission of the Bayard Cutting Arboretum, our CSA Farm pledges to uphold the principles of sustainable growing using organic methods, relationship building, educational, and community outreach.
The Farm is located adjacent to the estate’s original barn, on land that was the former cow pasture of the Bayard Cutting Estate. The farm harvested its first crop of vegetables, grown using organic and sustainable practices, without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides, during the summer of 2012.
Two and a half acres are currently under cultivation. We have three growing fields and herb and cut flower beds. We care for 150 laying hens and sell our organic eggs all year round.
This year, 2023, will mark the farm’s 12th year of operation! Bayard Cutting CSA Members enjoy weekly or biweekly vegetables, herbs, and flowers from late-May / early June through October. CSA members pick up their harvests on-site in the barn once a week, either Wednesday or Friday.
