In 2014, the CLC’s Farmer Landowner Match Program helped Mark and Miriam find landowners in Pine Plains to start their vegetable farm and fruit tree nursery, Full Circus Farm. The farm, still happily on that same piece of land growing organic produce and have many animals including a family dairy cow, horses and chickens! Last but certainly not least, these fantastic folks also grow a variety of fruit trees!
Full Circus Farm is now taking orders for their fruit trees which will be available for pick up mid-April! Their apple, pear and Asian pear trees saplings and are certified organic and are both grafted and grown right on the farm. Mark and Miriam will donate 15% of their sales to CLC if you tell them you found them through us! To order you may give them a call at 518-789-0025 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org!

They carry a large range of apple trees including McIntosh, Esopus Spitzenburg, Northern Spy and more! They also grow apples perfect for pressing hard ciders such as Kingston Black, Golden Russet and Ellis Bitter. Perfect for easy-access fall apple picking right in your own back yard!
Mark and Miriam use a team of draft horses to plow, spread compost and cultivate the soil. The horses are lighter on the land than a tractor, add fertility to the farm system, but most of all, they are just a joy to work with! Sandy and Sunshine, their pair of Haflinger ponies and are excited to get back to work after a long, chilly winter!
