Buy Local * Eat Fresh * Live Well

The Alleged Farm is located in the Town of Easton, in the rolling hills of southern Washington County, New York. We farm on fields under continuous cultivation since 1788 and take our stewardship of the land seriously. For us, that means a commitment to sustainable practices such as crop rotation, controlled grazing, minimal tillage and the use of cover crops and compost in order to promote and maintain the health of the earth.

We are also committed to growing tasty and healthy crops. We believe that fresh local produce tastes better and that crops grown without the use of synthetic fertilizer and pesticide are better for you and for everything that lives on our farm. We do everything we can—from choosing varieties to choosing when to harvest a crop—to ensure that our customers receive the best possible produce.

If you want to try some of our produce—and we grow everything from artichokes to zucchini–you can join our CSA or visit our stand at the Glens Falls farmers' market. Individuals and businesses can also contact the farm to arrange purchases.

The Alleged Farm donates 7 tons of food to local groups

We are in the business of feeding people. But not everyone can afford to eat as well or even as much as they should. That means sometimes we make it our business to give away our produce to help those people get the diet they deserve. To that end, we work with three local organizations who can deliver our crops where they are needed: Community Action, Capital Roots and Comfort Food (which is run by former Alleged Farm worker Devin Bulger).

In the course of the 2014 season, we donated about 14,000 pounds of fresh produce to these organization for distribution throughout the region. That’s a pretty big pile of vegetables, and giving it away makes us feel pretty good. We like feeding people.

The Alleged Farm CSA 2015 Season Shares

When you join The Alleged Farm CSA you get a weekly box of farm fresh produce in a remarkable array of varieties delivered to a convenient location. We grow 65 crops, including 30 kinds of tomatoes, 10 potatoes, 16 lettuces and five colors of carrots, and we have 11 drop off points around the Capital District. We make it easy for you to eat well.

In addition, you get the weekly farm newsletter, with suggestions about what to do with the crops (and how to identify unusual ones) and opportunities to visit the farm and learn about how your food is grown and who grows it. That’s a connection to what you eat that, unfortunately, most people are no longer afforded. But when you join our CSA, that connection is not just afforded, but affordable. Our share is a great deal on great food.
