Your Local, Midtown Farm
Community Food Production | Food Access | Farm Based Education | Youth Development
We are an urban, educational farm located at the YMCA in Midtown Kingston, New York. We use organic growing methods to grow food for our immediate community. Our produce is sold at our farm stand and bicycle powered mobile markets which are co-located where people live, work, and gather in Midtown Kingston. We work with pre-schoolers through high-schoolers, bringing young people to the farm to get their hands dirty as they learn, work, explore and play on the farm. Our youth development program offers 14-20 year olds the opportunity to work on our farm, help run our farm stands and gain valuable employment experience while earning high school credit or an hourly wage.
The Farm Project also hosts community work days and farm based events, providing opportunities for people of all ages to contribute to the farm.
Farm Stand at the YMCA opens June 1st
Our Farm Stand takes place every Thursday from June 1 until October 26th. We are open from 3:30-6. Find us in the lobby of the YMCA at 507 Broadway. We accept SNAP, WIC, FMNP, cash, checks, and debit cards.
Mobile Market launches June 13th
With our bicycle powered mobile market we bring our produce to Health Alliance of the Hudson Valley campuses and the Kingston Public Library. We will alternate hospital campuses each week, beginning with the Broadway Campus on June 13th. We will be there from 3-4. Every Tuesday we are at at the Kingston Public Library from 4:30-6.
