Our 2019 Farmers in front of the Corner Garden shed

Created in 2010, the two-acre Corner Garden is located across the street from the Farm Store and was created to provide alternative acreage for growing vegetables. Such a transformation was necessary due to increased flooding of the vegetable fields at the back of the farm behind the barns, a desire to grow more produce to meet on-site needs, and an interest in making vegetable production more oriented towards education and interaction.

This 2.4-acre Biodynamic garden is designed for hand-work and uses tractors on a very limited basis. One goal of this garden is to provide vegetables for Hawthorne Valley’s various initiatives including the Farm Store and Deli, Visiting Students Program and Summer Camps, School Lunch Program, Bakery, campus events, and more.
