On Monday, September 26th, George Demarsico, head chef at Xaviars will be preparing food for a fundraising dinner to support local farms. This event will be held at a Cropsey Community Farm Member’s home in Stony Point. Members of the community are welcome. An approximate donation of $75 will be requested.
Rockland Farm Alliance (RFA) and Cropsey Community Farm are looking for other members of the community to step up to host an event at their home.
“A contribution of $50 to $100 per person will be the norm, but it’s up to the host or hostess,” explains Donna McClure, Cropsey Community Farm’s CSA member and Harvest Dinner volunteer.
The details of the event are also up to the host, get creative and hopefully “they will come.”
RFA signed a lease with Rockland County and the Town of Clarkstown last year to farm five acres of the former Cropsey Farm in New City. This farm is the first organic, community supported farm of its size to be started in Rockland County. Camp Hill Farm is a CSA that was RFA’s first farm in Pomona, NY started by John McDowell, head of the RFA.
