About Us

An Historic Collaborative Project
Farm from the skyRockland Farm Alliance, under a licensing agreement with Rockland County and the Town of Clarkstown, launched Cropsey Community Farm in 2010, at the retired Cropsey farm on Little Tor Road. This project represents an historic inter-municipal collaboration, and is the first tangible step toward developing a local foodshed in Rockland County. RFA initially cultivated 5 acres of this 23-acre property, starting with a 200 member Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). In 2014, the farm will expand cultivation to the 7-acre south field.

Support Local Farming in Rockland County
Kids in row
This is Rockland County’s first opportunity to localize our food supply, and we hope it is the first of many.  The vision of Rockland Farm Alliance is that every town in Rockland County will have a farm where residents can purchase locally-grown produce and participate in programs and learning opportunities. We cannot succeed without community support. If you are interested in helping, please visit us at www.rocklandfarm.org

Thank you!

    Hi There,
    Sounds wonderful! How long have you been independent of the Cropsey farm? Are your vegetables organic or not grown with herbicides and pesticides, etc? Are your seeds non-GMO?
    Thanks for the info!

      Hi Sandy- this our second growing season at Cropsey Community Farm. Rockland far Alliance signed the lease with the county and the town of Clarkstown in June, 2010. The Cropseys sold the acreage to the county several years before then. We are an organic vegetable farm and use many bio-dynamic practices in our approach.

  2. This is great news to hear. I visited my local farmers market today and there was a handout from the Rockland Farm Alliance. I am now checking it out and I am very impressed. This is a very good project. I am very glad to know about it.

  3. I love the pictures of the children. When you have soil on your hands you have to feel you are talking directly to God.
