Our Farm Team

Meet the Cropsey Community Farm Team!

Shane Hardy
Head Farmer/Farm Manager

shane1Shane Hardy was born and raised in Nyack, New York.  He grew up helping in his mother’s garden, sailing on the Hudson River and rambling in the state parks and woodlands, developing a fascination with and love for nature.  After graduating from Ithaca College he worked at Cayuga Pure Organics, one of the largest producers of organic grains and heirloom dry beans in New York State. He eventually became the crop manager, overseeing crop rotations and field work on over 500 acres. Shane has also volunteered at small vegetable farms and managed the field at Late Bloomer Farm in Orange County, NY.  He has a deep desire to farm in a way that both produces food and nourishes the land that provides it. Shane is excited to be involved with the Rockland Farm Alliance and its goal of preserving and developing farmland within minutes of where he grew up.
