Katonah Green News & Events

I’d like to welcome organic farmer and consultant Fuad Aziz to back to Ryder Farm! We all missed him and are thrilled that he is back in Brewster.

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.

I just had to share this article with you about a rule reversal in the UK that will now allow ‘misshapen’ fruit and vegetables to be sold in markets for the first time in 20 years! This should help small and organic farms in the UK. Thanks to master craft basket weaver and avid gardener Kari Lonning for sharing this article with me via Twitter!
