Primary crops or livestock description

We will start our farm with the primary focus of growing diverse organic vegetables for CSA, wholesale, markets, and winter storage.  Within the first 2-3 years we will integrate the production of small fowl for eggs and meat, with the goal of adding larger animals by the 5th year.

Marketing method(s)

Our marketing strategy will be focused on supplying CSA shares to community spaces in Brooklyn. We have both extensive experience with this type of direct marketing and community connections, making us confident that this will financially support our operation. Additionally, we have worked directly with loyal chefs to supply restaurants in our area. This local revenue stream will supplement and diversify our income as a business.
