Columbia Street Farm
(formerly Added Value 's Red Hook Farms)

Formerly an asphalt baseball field, Red Hook Community Farm was established in 2001 and is now a thriving 2.75 acre production and compost site that supplies their Farmers Market.

It is the creation of Added Value, a nonprofit which closed in late 2018 and whose farms are now run by the Red Hook Initiative.  Added Value also created the NYCHA Farm at the Red Hook Houses.

This youth program teaches urban farming, healthy eating, and small business practices via selling at their farmers market.

They grow all their produce organically, and employ sustainable farming practices. Two feet of rich compost nourishes a variety of crops, which in turn create a diverse environment for microorganisms, insects, and other animals. They have a composting program, are open for school and group tours and have and active volunteer program.

In addition to their seasonal Farm stand, they have a CSA (community sponsored agriculture): at the beginning of the growing season people buy shares of the year's produce in advance and then weekly pick up their share of vegetables.  Additionally, fruit, egg and cheese shares are available.
See their website for more details.
