Blue Star Farms  -Stuyvesant NY

Blue Star Farm is located in Stuyvesant, NY in beautiful Columbia County. We are 3 miles east of the Hudson River and enjoy spectacular sunsets over the Catskill mountains. We grow over 130 different varieties of vegetables and herbs. We farm in Stuyvesant and on rented land in Kinderhook, NY. Currently we sell at farmer’s markets and wholesale.

Great cooking starts with great ingredients, and great ingredients start with great soil. At Blue Star Farm we are aiming for nutrient-dense foods through sustainable farming practices that enrich the soil, protect our water supplies and offer people healthier food choices. Our crops are herbicide and pesticide-free. We use compost, natural rock minerals and mulches to fortify the soils, along with crop rotation and green manures.

Farmers have the unique opportunity to start with a white canvas each year. Our new planting season begins again in February when we seed the first of our onions and leeks in our greenhouse.
