Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a farm model that enables you to purchase a share of the season’s harvest in advance. In return, you will receive a weekly share of approximately
8-10 pounds of a variety of seasonal produce, often harvested just hours earlier, throughout the growing season. The members of Cropsey Community Farm CSA get to know their farmers, as well as where their food is coming from and how it is grown.
Cropsey Community Farm (CCF) is the first farm project of Rockland Farm Alliance. The mission of CCF is to grow nutrient dense, delicious food for our communities, and to provide a working example of a farm that thrives ecologically, economically and as a center for learning. The farm grows organic produce for a CSA and area farmers markets and hosts a variety of school and community programs.
Rockland Farm Alliance (RFA) is a 501(c)(3) organization with the mission to promote sustainable agriculture in Rockland County by creating farms that are models of small scale local food production and that provide opportunities for people of all ages to learn about sustainable farming practices.

Dear Friends of Cropsey Community Farm,
I am a Boy Scout in New City, New York (Troop 97- Hudson Valley Council), and I, (along with members of my troop) am currently working on my Eagle project. My goal is to construct a working Hoop House for Cropsey Community Farm. A hoop house is a relatively inexpensive type of greenhouse which allows for longer growing seasons, starter plantings and delicate plantings that can’t be grown outdoors. It is constructed using a frame made of steel pipe “hoops” and covered with two layers of a thick plastic skin. A hoop house is particularly valuable to Cropsey Community Farm because it will allow food to be grown at the farm year round and will help keep sustainable agriculture alive in Rockland County by allowing the farm to derive more revenue to help maintain production and teach sustainable farming to community members.
I need to raise approximately $2,800 for materials and supplies in order to complete this 96 foot long hoop house and would greatly appreciate any help you could give. All donations go to Rockland Farm Alliance, Inc. and are tax deductible. These donations go directly to Rockland Farm Alliance and are earmarked for this project. Please link here to see my “donation to” site and donate to this project:
Should I be lucky enough to raise more than what is required to build a hoop house, the balance will go to RFA for other projects.
Thank you for all of your help.

Yesterday, we were happy to host farmers from the lower Hudson Valley for a visit as part of the Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT), which is a model for sharing supplemental farm training in cooperation with a number of participating farms. Their feedback and insight makes us a stronger, more productive farm and all together, we will keep farming alive in the Hudson Valley.
Thank you to the farmers from Ryder Farm, Hilltop-Hanover Farm and the Pfeiffer Center for coming out!
