Poughkeepsie Farm Project began in 1999 as a small community farm with a commitment to education and food justice. The first season, 15 CSA shareholders enjoyed produce from 3 acres of reawakened farmland leased from Vassar College.

Sixteen years later they have expanded to 12 acres and over 500 households take part in their CSA. They are leaders in cutting edge practices in today’s sustainable agriculture. The Poughkeepsie Farm project harvested 183,366 pounds of produce (or 21% up from last season) in 2015, and donated 34,555 pounds of it to those in need in their community. In addition to the work they do to bring their crops to harvest, they train and educate the community on healthy growing¬†and eating practices year round.
