Unadilla Community Farm was founded in 2013 by a group of wwoofers (volunteers working on organic farms) dedicated to the goals of the back-to-land movement. We are starting from scratch on 12 acres of beautiful fields and forest, adjacent to protected forest land and Amish country. A creek and river also run along the perimeter of the land. Our mission is simple: to provide a space for the teaching and practice of sustainable skills.
We are in the process of building our farmstead from the ground up, relying exclusively on sustainable building methods and all-natural and salvaged materials. We get our lumber from the mountain down the road, and our Amish neighbors mill it for us.
Our hope is that Unadilla Community Farm will blossom into a certified organic farm, intentional community, education center, and non-profit organization. We intend to host workshops (building, gardening, soap making, crafts, etc.) for the public and, in the future, to sell produce, prepared foods, personal care products, and handmade artisanal crafts at local farmers' markets.
