Are you open to the public? Yes! Pitney Meadows is open to the public from dawn to dusk.
What buildings/areas of the Farm are open to the public? Visitors are welcome to stroll in the Community Gardens, walk along our trail system, explore the Welcome Center, shop in the Farm Stand and use our picnic tables to eat, drink and relax on! We kindly ask that you refrain from entering any working building, as they house tools and equipment that can be a risk to the general public.
Can we come pick produce from your fields? Our Farm is pick-your-own through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and through our limited Guided Harvests. The CSA promotes individual choice based on availability, so members can pick their own produce to fulfill their CSA shares. For more on our CSA, click here. Our Guided Harvests are new to 2022, and aim to incorporate an educational aspect as well as a U-Pick experience. You can sign up for specific dates on our events calendar.
What are your hours? We are open dawn to dusk, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
How long is your trail? The larger loop around our agriculture fields is 1.7 miles. The smaller loop near West Avenue is 0.5 miles.
How do I get involved with the Farm? There are many ways to get involved with us: you can become a volunteer, participate in a workshop, program or event or become a CSA member. Coming to the Farm to walk the trails, or shop in our Farm stand are other great ways to get involved!
What does CSA mean? CSA is an abbreviation for "community-supported agriculture". Community-supported agriculture is "an arrangement to buy food that is grown or produced by local farms and businesses". Community members purchase a weekly share of fresh crops from a local farm- this is a great way to eat seasonally and support local!
Do you accept community compost? At this time, we do not accept compost from the public. For more information on how to compost, please check out Sustainable Saratoga or Loving Earth Compost, which is Saratoga's first ever compost pick-up service.
