Community. Commerce. Sustainability. Succession.

This experiential event features live performance from a Disney musical artist and draws many attendees to our working farm location. Visiting the farm is an opportunity to connect rural and urban marketplaces and families with their food choices and sources in an interactive day of music, little farmer activities, educational games, taste tests, CSA sign ups, and introductions to food businesses from throughout the Hudson Valley region – all for a good cause! Get involved and make food choices that matter. Connect to Seed and Soil – and support a great cause. FarmOn!
