About Our Farmers

THE FARM AT MILLER’S CROSSING (VEGETABLE & BEEF)

Farm At Miller's Crossing logo

This is a beautiful 200-acre farm situated in the Hudson Valley of New York. The Agawamuck Creek divides the farm providing water for the animals and plants that are raised there. The old Albany-Boston Rail bed remains on the northwestern end of the property, providing the name Miller’s Crossing, which was the stop and original address of this 200 year old farm.

The Farm at Miller’s crossing is Flatbush Farm Share’s primary partners and provide us with a variety of seasonal organic vegetables.

They also raise a small herd of grass-fed beef on their pastures and available as an additional share.

Located in Argyle, NY, Jeff and Kathy McMurry provide us with eggs from hens that are free-range and enjoy a varied diet of bugs, food scraps, and all natural grain containing no bi-products or antibiotics. Sunset Farm strives to raise a high quality product using good animal husbandry practices (humanly raised). All of their products are free from antibiotics, hormones and animal bi-products. Their hens are free to roam in a large fenced in area to protect them from predators. The hen house is available for them to use if the outside weather is not up to their liking.

ARGYLE CHEESE FARMERS (YOGURT)

argyleRandles Fairview Farm has been in operation for more than 150 years. As current partners and caretakers for the future, Dave and Marge Randles decided to move into the value-added dairy market as a way to help the farm achieve greater, more controlled rates of return.The Argyle Cheese Factory was born after much work and discussion. In more recent years, Marge began making yogurts which are now available to you as an additional share.

NEW THIS YEAR! We are now partnering with the LEWIS WAITE FARM CSA EXTRAS program to bring you cheese, grain & beans, bread, and poultry from local farmers in the Hudson Valley. Lewis Waite Farm is a small, family-run business, dedicated to organic farming and to bringing together consumers and small, local farms dedicated to sustainable practices.
