Other Details:
Mountain Dell Farm has been in business for 24 years selling vegetables to restaurants in New York City and locally. It also has a small CSA. We were certified organic from 1990 until 2001, and have signed The Farmer’s Pledge of NOFA-NY since 2003. The farm business has enabled the owners to raise two children from infancy through college. Now, we seek to transfer the farm and business to new growers that will continue to care for the land. We would like to begin the relationship with a lease, but with the possibility to buy.
