Quail Hill Farm, a Stewardship project of the Peconic Land Trust
In 2014 Quail Hill Farm celebrated its 25th Anniversary!
Quail Hill Farm, one of the original Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms in the U.S., is located in Amagansett, New York, on land donated to the Peconic Land Trust by Deborah Ann Light. Since it was established in 1990, Quail Hill Farm has grown to 30 acres serving over 250 families. The community farm also delivers fresh food to local restaurants and food pantries and participates in two farmers' markets (Sag Harbor and Montauk) throughout the season. Each year, Quail Hill Farm signs on to the “Farmer’s Pledge” of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York: “to sustain the land in healthy condition for future generations.”
There are many ways for you to get involved with the Farm:
