At Common Ground we work towards a more just food system by growing fresh produce and distributing our vegetables and herbs through food justice partnerships. Common Ground Farm is located on 9 acres of historic farmland leased from the Stony Kill Environmental Education Center in Wappingers Falls, NY.
The farm is a member of the NOFA-NY Farmer’s Pledge program, which reflects our commitment to growing food sustainably without chemicals, treating our workers with dignity and showing respect and care for our land. Read more about our Food Justice and Land Stewardship programs.
Every year, we grow a wide variety of vegetables, herbs and flowers. The food we grow is distributed to a variety of destinations within 10 miles of the farm -- local food pantries, school cafeterias, farmers’ markets in Beacon and Newburgh, mobile markets, and farm to table restaurants in the Hudson Valley.
We also use CGF-grown produce in educational cooking programs with children and adults, including farm camp and field trips, and during the summer CGF offers a weekly U-Pick program where members come to the farm to pick their own fresh vegetables, herbs and flowers.
