Young Milan farmers offer vegetable shares

Great Song Farm aims to support the community

Great Song Farm, in the heart of Milan, is celebrating its second year of providing fresh vegetables to the surrounding community, using organic and biodynamic principles and practices.

Growing and giving

Red Hook Farm couple cater to those in need

The majority of the produce grown at Red Hook Farm, which is actually just across the border in Milan, is not sold at a farmer’s market or through CSA, but is donated, primarily to the Franciscan Community of Graymoor in Garrison.

Of soil and soul

A local farm prepares for the season with timeless rhythm

Leaving the house 10 minutes late in damp jeans and rubber boots, hands crusted in the sweet smell of horse bedding co-mingled with a bit of manure, I abandon the dripping barnyard, grab my pair of rain pants, and head off the farm, driving 15 minutes through the backroads of Milan and north on 9, eager to meet the folks at Hearty Roots Farm.
