Address: 44301 Cross Island Rd. Wellesley Island, NY 13640.
Description: Dani Baker and David Belding are the owners of this highly diversified organic farm, with retail sales of vegetables, eggs, beef, chicken, goat and pork. Dani and David will lead us on a tour of their recently completed sustainable energy project, including a 10KW wind turbine and a 7KW solar array. Combined with a 17kw back-up generator for emergencies, it is expected that this project will supply almost all of the farm’s need for electricity. The wind and solar are grid-connected with net metering so no back up battery system is required. The farm is also an international agri-tourism destination, offering educational organic farm tours and on-farm primitive camping. Cross Island Farms is certified organic by NOFA-NY Certified Organic LLC.
