At Stones Throw Farm we farm using ecologically sound and sustainable growing practices. It's the only way that we've ever farmed and the only way we know how. We don't farm this way because of a developing niche market, a label or a certification. We farm this way because it's the right thing to do, and it just makes sense.
We thank you for supporting us in farming this way!
Stones Throw Farm has been a proud member and supporter of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York (NOFA-NY) The Farmer's Pledge program since its inception in 2005. Information on The Farmer's Pledge is available at http://nofany.org/farmerspledge.htm
"This pledge arises from the expressed need of growers who have a fundamental disagreement with the usurpation and control of the word "organic" by the USDA, and those farmers who want to pledge to an additional philosophical statement about their growing practices." -NOFA-NY
We have supported NOFA-NY's "general membership" since the mid-1990's and support them today as "Farm Members" and "The Farmers Pledge" participants.
NOFA-NY continues to be a force for the development and protection of sustainable agriculture in the Northeast. We invite you to learn more about NOFA-NY and encourage you to support their efforts.
