Leaning Birch Farm is a highly diversified micro-farm located in Broadalbin, NY. We grow a wide variety of Certified Naturally Grown produce on a little more than half an acre of land. Our growing methods combine centuries-old techniques with the latest in scientific understanding. We use permanent raised beds to ensure the continuing good health of our soil, and never use chemical sprays or artificial fertilizers.
The mission of our farm is to sustainably supply our local community with as diverse a selection of fresh vegetables, herbs and flowers as we can manage, from the mundane (tomatoes, carrots and salad greens) to the exotic (fresh ginger and turmeric). Our local community includes our farm stand, a small CSA, a fresh market display in nearby Saratoga Springs, and a few chosen restaurants and specialty food stores.
We believe that people should get to know the folks who grow their food, and purchase as much as possible from local growers. In a world that is now hanging precariously in the balance of global climate change, it seems foolish to continue to ship produce thousands of miles across the country when the same quality food can be supplied by conscientious farmers just minutes from home.
