MX Morningstar Farm, entering its 5th season, is a certified organic vegetable farm located in Copake, NY. The farm is run by partners Max Morningstar and Maria Zordan, and collaboratively managed by a tight-knit team of dedicated and talented managers. We attend one farmers’ market in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, but the vast majority of our produce is sold to wholesale, restaurant and processing customers. 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.
We currently lease 72 acres and crop approximately 35-40 acres each year. Our farm specializes in the production of potatoes, sweet potatoes, root crops, winter squash, cucumbers, and summer squash, though we grow other types of produce as well. 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!
