Support Our Farming Community

Screen Shot 2020-05-11 at 5.33.40 PM

The Columbia Land Conservancy (CLC) has some great ideas to support our farming community during the COVID-19 pandemic. One of those ideas is purchasing food from local farms.

New York State considers farms and farmers markets to be essential during this time. Local farms are still open, but you may have to be flexible to purchase their products. Find your favorite farms online or call to see if they are taking pre-orders for pick up or offering delivery services while we all practice social distancing. CLC has created a directory of Columbia County Farms to find available local farm products.

Another idea is to sign up for a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share. CSA memberships offset some of a farmer’s early operational costs and allow them to invest in their growing season, while you enjoy fresh food as it is ready for harvest. Click here to find a CSA near you.
