9 Miles East Farm LLC is in the town of Northumberland, New York, 9 miles east of Saratoga Springs, in a quiet area of dairy and hay farms.
We've been farming sustainably in our gently rolling 29 acres of clay loam soil since 2004. We keep a significant amount of our land in cover crops every season, plowing down the clover, rye, buckwheat and other crops to build organic matter and biological activity in the soil. We also use cover crops between rows to host beneficial insects and protect the soil. All of the products we use are OMRI-certified organic, but we don't use that label ourselves. We certainly respect farms who do, but our perspective is that the o-word has lost meaning as many organic farms have become industrial in scale and distribution.
9 Miles East Farm makes it easy for busy people to enjoy healthy local food. We deliver farm-made meals and our own freshly harvested vegetables to workplaces and directly to subscribers.
