Full Plate Farm Collective: Connecting Local Farmers and Consumers

The Full Plate Farm Collective is a collective of three farms working to provide a quality CSA experience to shareholders and to strengthen a community of growers and eaters. The three farm are Stick and Stone Farm (10th year in operation!), Ann and Jeff's Farm, and Remembrance Farm. The CSA aspect of operation is managed by Melissa Brill. This collective feeds 100 families in the Trumansburg, Ithaca, and Danby Communities.

Check out the Full Plate Farm Collective website, LocalHarvest.

An article about the collective is in The Ithaca Journal.

Brandon Cruz removes weeds from a field of herbs while Nathaniel Thompson cultivates an onion field on a tractor, background, last Tuesday at Remembrance Farm in Danby. Cruz is an apprentice at the farm, owned and farmed by Thompson. The farm is part of the Full Plate Farm Collective. Cruz recently graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh and hopes to become a mushroom farmer.
