Collected Seed Farm
(Preston Hollow,NY)Our farm began on a walk from a memory to a dream. We are situated on a beautiful 110-acre south-facing slope 30 miles south of Albany in the hamlet of Preston Hollow. We are a part of a vibrant community of landscape designers, artisans and entrepreneurs whose purpose is to care for and rehabilitate the Earth while building a sustainable economic model around small-scale agriculture and craft. Currently, we have one house, a few barns and an old production apple orchard with mint, oregano and raspberries growing wild underneath. Our 2-acre garden is our backyard, from which we harvest vegetables for our CSA. The property is bordered by a creek and there is access to 2 additional natural water sources (a spring and a well). We are keeping 55 acres of our property forested to protect the watershed and wildlife. We follow a system of design called Permaculture. Many call this approach holistic, because its focus is on providing for the entire system. Instead of feeding just the plants with a measured dosage of chemicals (BOOOO!), we understand the complexity of nature and use organic matter to feed the organisms who will then feed the soil that will then feed the plants that will eventually feed you (HOORAY!). The degree to which our no-till method cooperates with nature will extenuate the educational experience of our members. The consumers of our products are actively involved in their fruition. Supporting small farms through CSA not only strengthens our local economy, but also our bond with this planet. Our harvest season begins in June and will last well into the fall.
