In the heart of Ancram lies a beautiful 200- acre organic farm known as the Thompson-Finch Farm, a Centennial Farm in operation since 1859. And thanks to our generous local community, it will be protected as a farm, forever.
Thompson-Finch Farm is a signature farm, with one of the largest and oldest organic you-pick strawberry operations in the northeast. The farm balances productivity with environmental stewardship. The management techniques utilized on the farm have protected the Roeliff-Jansen Kill, wetlands, and other important habitats from harm. For over a year, CLC has worked with Equity Trust, Scenic Hudson, and the Dutchess Land Conservancy to protect this important piece of Columbia County history.
