Organizer

Neversink Farm

Neversink Farm has developed radical farming practices on their 1.5 acres that has enabled them to be one of the highest production farms per square foot in the country.

What can be 
more radical than removing the symbol of vegetable farming; the tractor? We practice  farming by hand; replacing the tractor with hand tools. All planting, cultivation, and harvesting is done manually, though we use modern tools and techniques that keep us efficient and competitive. We use permanant beds and never till nor use heavy equipment in our fields. We find that farming this way is easier, more productive, and can produce vegetables of a higher quality.
