Letterbox Farm

Letterbox Farm is a collectively owned and operated commercial farm in Hudson, NY.  They are a young, quickly growing start-up in our 3rd year.   They tend 64 acres of fields, woods, ravines, and mountain side, just outside downtown Hudson.
Letterbox Farm raises specialty vegetables, herbs, pork, chicken, eggs, and rabbit using best practices in animal welfare and organic management.  They  distribute our goods through a full-diet CSA, two farmers markets (Rhinebeck, NY and Chappaqua, NY), and a fleet of restaurants in the valley and Manhattan.
Outside the work day, the farm team undertakes research and community organizing projects that benefit the farm community and their local economy.  They also host farm dinners and events that celebrate seasonality and place.
