FarmOn! at Empire Farm located in Copake NY is an Academy for Agriculture inviting the community to experience how to eat and providing educational scholarships for students to learn the business of food on a working farm.
Kids love Camp FarmOn! We give Milk Money to make lunchrooms smarter, build a connection to seed + soil and educate youth in local economies as the next generation to feed us good food from family farms. Get involved with the future of food.
You make this possible! Sponsor, host an event or attend one to meet your farmer with influencers and celebrity chefs. Experience eating better and support our important work. All proceeds benefit FarmOn! Foundation 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
