Crossroads Farm at Grossmann's
The Nassau Land Trust is pleased to announce that the former Grossmann's Farm in the Village of Malverne is now in its third season of operating as a working farm. Thanks to Nassau County, who acquired the farm from the Grossmann family using proceeds from the 2006 Environmental Bond Act, and the Crossroads Farm Committee, comprised of a dedicated group of local residents, nonprofit leaders and NLT Board members, this beloved family farm has once again returned to active agriculture.
Since July of 2010, Crossroads Farm at Grossmann's has benefitted from the experience and dedication of its farmers and staff. With the invaluable help of volunteers, they have worked tirelessly to rejuvenate the soil and restore the buildings and infrastructure. As a result, Crossroads Farm at Grossmann’s has become a thriving, certified organic farm that employs effective biodynamic growing techniques—ensuring the health of both the land and the community. This public farm now has growing volunteer, education, and CSA programs, as well as a farm stand for locally grown produce. Nassau Land Trust looks forward to continuing participation in the revival of an "agricultural culture" in southwestern Nassau County.
