Roxbury Farm

Roxbury Farm is a community supported farm.  We grow vegetables, herbs, and grass fed pork, lamb, and beef for over 1000 shareholders representing over 1200 families in four communities--Columbia County, the Capital Region, Westchester County and Manhattan--on 300 acres in Kinderhook, New York. 

Our farmland has been taken off the market, permanently. It can never be bought or sold again. It can only be leased, and only by a farmer who commits to farming it. The lease is lifelong and inheritable, and the fee is based on the agricultural value of the land, not the market value.  Affordable housing for the farmer and farm employees is also protected in perpetuity.  Even in the rapidly rising country home market two and a half hours from New York City, this land and housing will always be available and affordable to a farmer.

Roxbury Farm uses farming practices that developed out of anthroposophy.  These practices allow for a great diversity of living organism on his or her farm to thrive as those systems have proven to be most efficient in harboring life and storing energy. Every aspect of the farm makes its own unique contribution to the whole. When a farm is biodynamic it is transformed from a factory, producing food and generating profit, to a being that has its own characteristics with associated strengths and weaknesses that are honored.

Waiting for Spring

Posted by Jody :: Friday, April 10 :: 3:30pm

We have lots of plants in the greenhouse waiting to get into the ground.  Moved early brassicas & greens outside to harden off, onions to the cool side of the greenhouse and filled up the warm side with pepper, eggplant & tomato transplants.  Hopefully the sunshine & warmer temperatures coming allow us to work in the fields next week!

We still have shares available at almost all sites - sign up now to receive a share of these vegetables this summer!
