The FARM at Locusts on Hudson

We are a small, diversified farm located on the Hudson River in Staatsburg, New York.  Our farm produces vegetables, herbs, mushrooms, eggs, meat and honey for restaurants in NYC.  We are in the process of building an educational outreach program for the public. 

Apprentices learn all aspects of managing our fields, pastures and forest.  We host lectures and discussions for apprentices that cover a 26-week curriculum that focuses on topics related to agriculture and mindfulness.  Apprentices also have the option to participate in CRAFT (Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training).

Start Dates April 1 and May 1.
