Join- Get Connected- Get Involved

NOFA-NY is a member based organization that fosters peer to peer networking, education and information sharing. Our members care deeply about local organic food production, family scale farming and their impact on human health, the environment and society.

    I’m moving to NY, and interested in buying a farm to produce organically, got to be as close as possible to New Rochele-White Plains corridor, where my family lives, do you have any hints?

    Hi, my name is Denise and i was looking for a source of raw goats milk, do you produce any we can buy? We only need a few gallons for cheese, thank you!

  3. Hi, We are opening an Eco Living Store at 29 West Market St in Red Hook NY (Dutchess County). We want to offer local procurements…can anyone give me a guide or complete list of local folks who make great products and want to sell in a nice store. http://www.livingeden.com
