Food Access

Great food for everyone

Norwich Meadow Farms is dedicated to making healthy, local, delicious food available to everyone across our region. We work to ensure that our great produce is accessible not only to top chefs at some of the great restaurants of the world but also to home cooks who want to provide their families with the food that they love, including foods that reflect diverse cultural traditions and are much less available from conventional sources.

In the community

We are in the community at farmers markets and with our CSA boxes almost every day of the year, reaching our customers where they live with the best products at affordable prices. 

We donate food through programs like Grow Cook Serve, operated by Cornell Cooperative Extension near our home in Chenango county in upstate New York. Grow Cook Serve provides fresh local produce donated by local farms and gardeners to income restricted individuals and families while providing self-sufficiency education. In 2023, the program's eighth year, Grow Cook Serve gleaned over 4,000 pounds of fresh produce from our farm and from home gardeners and donated the produce to seven food pantries in the County. Grow Cook Serve collaborates with 4-H, SNAP-ED, HeadStart, WIC, food pantries, and local schools to offer quality cooking, nutrition, and gardening education.

In New York City, we work with innovative educational programs, workshops, and community events like the Two Bridges Youth Farmers' Market and Chefs for Impact that combine food access with celebrating diverse foodways, enhancing nutritional knowledge, and encourage the use of fresh, local produce.

Through all of these efforts, Norwich Meadows Farm provides fresh and nutritious sustenance and fosters a stronger, healthier, and more resilient community upstate and around our region.
