Roxbury Farm

“Roxbury is a community supported farm, one of the largest in the country, and the first to have a community in New York City. We grow vegetables, herbs, and grass fed animals for over 1000 shareholders representing over 1050 families in four communities–Columbia County, the Capital Region, Westchester County and Manhattan–on 225 acres in Kinderhook, New York.

Roxbury is a biodynamic farm, which means it’s organic. But biodynamic means more than organic. Both are alternatives to toxic chemicals and genetic manipulation, but it isn’t only what we don’t do that makes our farm different from conventional farms; it’s what we do.”

Sang Lee Farms


“Sang Lee Farms is a second generation family farm originally growing produce for the Asian markets in New York and along the east coast.

Over the last fifteen years the farm has shifted its focus to retail, farmers’ markets and community supported agriculture. In doing so it has added many new specialty vegetable and herb products, including heirloom tomatoes, multicolored carrots, asparagus, potatoes and garlic.

To compliment all this wonderful produce the farm has developed its own full line of prepared foods. Dressings, dips, pestos, pickled products, jellies, and cooking sauces are now available, and are featured whenever Sang Lee Farms hosts special events and tastings.”
