Creating a Better Food System
Roxbury Farm is a community supported farm; a partnership between the farmers and the customers. Through this partnership we can work together to create a food system that works for everyone. Our customers know where their food comes from and who grows their food. They have a direct relationship with the farmers and the land. Our customers trust us to farm in a regenerative way and to produce the freshest and highest quality food possible at a fair price.
We have a guaranteed market for our products and we receive a fair price. This allows us to pay better wages to people working on the farm, use regenerative farming practices, raise our livestock humanely, and to share our farming knowledge with other farmers. We want our farm to be here for our customers for generations to come.
The customer/farmer partnership reduces waste in the food system. We only grow what our customers need. We can deliver tomatoes and potatoes of all sizes instead of the perfectly round tomato and potatoes all of the same size. All our CSA distribution sites are connected to a food pantry or food bank. All produce that remains at the end of a pick up is donated in order to provide access to fresh produce to all member of the community. Each year this partnership donates $100,000 worth of produce to Hudson Valley and NYC food pantries.
