Hesperides Organica

Hesperides are nymphs who tend a blissful garden in a far western corner of the world near the Atlas mountains on a blessed island. We tend 12 (+ 88) blissful acres of black dirt in the far western corner of Orange County, New York, near Mt. Adam and Eve.

We practice organic and sustainable agriculture with the intention of minimizing the use of fossil fuels and any outside inputs. Our focus is to promote locally grown vegetables and herbs on small family farms. Soil fertility is maintained through the use of crop rotation, fallow fields, compost tea and cover crops. We grow a variety of vegetables and herbs. We offer a limited number of shares. We only grow vegetables for our CSA members. We do not sell at any farmer's markets, to any restaurants or to other farmers or any wholesale. We carefully plan each year for our members only and any extra produce is donated to local food banks and homeless shelters.
