Red Hook Farms (formerly Added Value)

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 the non-profit organization Added Value, which went on to create 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 on Saturdays 10am-3pm June 18 - November 19. There is also a CSA at that Farmer's Market. Added Value grows all their produce organically, and employs 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 and you can drop off food scraps for composting. Open for school and group tours. Active volunteer program.
