Quail Hill Farm, a Stewardship project of the Peconic Land Trust
Celebrating 27 Season of Community Farming!
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 35 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 Springs) 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.”
Quail Hill Farm is also a member of the CSA Day/CSA Charter. We recently joined with friend farmers to create the charter to remember and to restate the principles that drew many of us together almost 30 years ago in a modest Waldorf school in the village of Kimberton, PA. No one there imagined that three decades later over 7,000 CSAs would be cultivating soil and community across these States. The practice of agriculture begins with a seed, and what a vital seed we held then in our hands, one we continue to sow throughout Turtle Island (and across the globe). We thank you for being a part of it all.
