Founded in 1983, NOFA-NY is a statewide organization leading a growing movement of farmers, consumers, gardeners, and businesses committed to promoting sustainable, local, organic food and farming.
We provide education, assistance, and support to regionally-based, sustainable farmers to help them thrive; educate consumers about the value in buying local, organic products; help consumers connect with regionally-based farmers; work to make local, organic food available to all people; and advocate policies that support a sustainable food and farm system.
Our organization promotes the stewardship of the land and the lives that inhabit it. Stewardship encompasses the long term viability of our natural resource base; the health of consumers; the working conditions of farmers, their families and workers; the needs of communities; and the welfare of farm animals.
Membership is open to all. Consider helping us in our mission! Visit our membership website for current information.
