New City Farm is back to Farming

The other day, I was in my car with a friend and we were driving by Cropsey's Farm on Little Tor Rd., in New City. We both live up the street from the farm, so know that the Cropsey's sold it several years ago to Clarkstown and Rockland County. We were wondering what was going on, we had seen cars parked in the field, and it looked as if some gardening was going on. Well, today in The Journal News, I got my answer. The Rockland Farm Alliance is overseeing the Cropsey Community Farm. The Alliance was able to get the equipment that was needed to work the land, now volunteers are helping out. One can buy shares in the farm and that money will help to buy supplies. These shares also give you the benefit of receiving a portion of the harvest. But you have to be ready to work, it is also expected that you will work the field as well, but for only 14 hours. What a great tribute to the Cropsey's, while preserving our land. Great idea to have a community farm!
