Hello, and welcome to Catskill Community Micro Farm!
Conceived in May of 2020, our aim is to grow produce for donation to local food pantries, addressing the shortage of healthy, fresh food in the pantry system. We are beginning with donations to the Catskill Community Center Food Shelf which has now transitioned into the Catskill Food Pantry.
Working on an acre of land generously donated by the St. Patrick’s Parish, we’ve begun transforming an underutilized lot on the corner of William and Spring Street in Catskill, NY into a fully producing micro farm. We are currently harvesting enough fresh produce to supply 20-25 families each week.
We are completely volunteer run, with all encouraged to participate and lend their strengths to this project. Don’t think you have a green thumb? That’s okay, we’re happy to teach you! Our farm work days always include team leaders delegating tasks and teaching anyone who wants to develop their skill set.
We’re heavily reliant on donations, so please consider connecting us to folks who might have things to spare in the way of farm equipment or plant starts.
We look forward to meeting you!
