MX Morningstar Farm, run by partners Max Morningstar and Maria Zordan, is a certified organic vegetable farm previously located in the heart of Copake, NY. 2019 will be our first season at our new location, a retired apple orchard (soon-to-be full on vegetable farm) at 5956 NY-9H, Hudson, NY.
We attend one farmers’ market in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, but the vast majority of our produce is sold to wholesale, restaurant and processing customers. This year we will be adding to our retail operation by opening a farm store on-site. We currently crop approximately 35-40 acres of diversified vegetables each year. Our farm specializes in the production of potatoes, sweet potatoes, root crops, winter squash, cucumbers, and summer squash, though we will be expanding our diversity to increase growth at our farmer’s market and new farm store. We are heavily mechanized, both to increase efficiency and preserve our bodies, and are always looking for ways to improve the quality of the work we do!
One of our strengths is a shared longterm vision of our farm; one that rallies around a strong and dedicated core group of farmers to manage and grow the business in a manner consistent with our values, while providing a good quality of life to farmers. We are seeking people who share these values and that are excited to join us in pursuing this vision.
