If you haven’t been to Ryder Farm’s farmstand, or haven’t seen their organic CSA’s, stop by to meet Betsy Ryder and the rest of the dedicated organic farmers. Be sure to check out summer intern Neysa’s blog on learning to farm at Ryder: www.dissertationtodirt.com
Ryder Farm Cottage Industries has fresh, certified organic produce, herbs, and flowers, with a wide selection of potted plants for the home organic gardener. The stand is self-serve, so come any time. Exact change only. Feel free to stroll through the fields, or chat with one of this season’s farm apprentices. The farm is located at 400 Starr Ridge Road, just off route 6, Brewster, NY.
