We are family farmers - Brian and Justine Denison, our children Suzanna and Maggie. We have been in NY state for ten years, having moved here from Maine, where for 16 years, we grew over 100 acres of mixed vegetables. Brian is also a forester out of the University of Maine and Justine has taught elementary school, worked on the farm, and is a musician.
Denison Farm is fully committed to organic agriculture and we will follow the national organic standards. We are certified by a local agency called Certified Naturally Grown and we would like to move closer to the Biodynamic ideal of the farm as a self-sustaining organism. This Schaghticoke, NY farm is 164 acres of rich bottom land, wooded ridges, pasture/hayfields, marsh, and streams. The farm is the home of the first CSA in New York state and has a 24 year history of organic management and CSA marketing by our much-loved predecessor, Janet Britt.
The 2014 CSA sign-up has just begun! Please visit our website for ordering information or email Justine directly for a membership agreement form. Thank you so much for supporting local, organic agriculture! We will be back at the Troy and Saratoga Farmers' Markets beginning in May. We will also offer winter vegetable boxes later in the season - 2 in November and 2 in December.
