Here are some of their comments...

"it is amazing how much our chicks have grown! years beginning finds them reaching a new stage as they feather their bodies and grow big. some of them destroy their bedding. we are kept busy taking care of them. the farm is always adding new things to do that you never thought that you would be able to do. "

"I like the sound of the chicks in the house; I like learning about them.. "

"want to talk about how all of the things that we do at the farm are waking up the parts of my life that were sleeping. asking me to try new things is helping me stand on my own. this is learning to trust in my independence. my autism lessens with each new farming job that i learn. you are our support. thank you. "

Chicks come to SustainAbility Farm

We at SustainAbility Farm - in the beautiful Hudson Valley- send our very best wishes to all of you, our friends and supporters, for a joyous holiday and a great new year ahead.

The farm has been the site of many small miracles this past season- our farmers have found ways to contribute to the farm that build on their individual strengths, and we are constantly being amazed at their capabilities.

Our growing field is a magical place where everyone- our farmers and staff and our greatly appreciated volunteers have had memorable experiences. Our CSA customers have enjoyed our bountiful harvest.

Next year, we hope to host events that can bring more of you to the farm to share in this beautiful place and the community that is growing here. We look forward to welcoming you to the farm.

Last, but not least, we are raising 15 beautiful chicks- just two weeks old and literally, sprouting wings! We hope that this foray into sharing the farm with farm animals will attract new farmers and visitors. We have built their brooder box, and are now teaching the art and science of mobile chicken coop building.

And, the hatchery promises us rainbow colored eggs from these hens!

We are on our way! Thanks so much to all of you for getting us this far.

We are changing the perception about people with autism and other developmental disabilities- one heirloom tomato at a time.

Congratulations to Jayne Henson, farmer and a member of our Profarmer program, for launching TransGenerational Farm, which debuted at the Union Square Greenmarket earlier this week. Every Wednesday through Thanksgiving you will find Jayne at the stand. TransGenerational Farm developed out of Jayne’s work with SustainAbility Farm in Accord, NY where she works alongside Sustainability’s farmers. TransGenerational Farm’s stand features a variety of vegetable and fruit varieties selected specifically for the needs of the New York City market. Along with growing food for people the vision behind TransGenerational Farm is to connect LGBTQ individuals to agriculture and healthy food. Future projects include introducing sliding scale pricing to address issues of food access, and community education days to get LGBTQ people’s hands in the dirt.
*The Chicks of SustainAbility Farm Wish You a Happy New Year*
