Threefold Community Farm
Threefold Community Farm is a cooperative endeavor uniting and expanding the Fellowship Community’s Duryea Farm and the educational and agricultural work of the Pfeiffer Center. It is built on the ideals of Biodynamic care of the land, education, and service to the community through food production.
The farm provides Biodynamically grown vegetables and dairy products to the Fellowship Community, which are used in meals for Members and Co-workers at Hilltop House. Opportunities are available throughout the season for Fellowship Community Members to be involved in processing vegetables and herbs in an interactive and social setting.
The Farm Store provides the only local source of raw milk and raw aged cheeses in Rockland County, yogurt made in-house using heirloom cultures, as well as pasteurized soft fresh cheeses, all from our own micro-herd of Jersey-forward cows.
Seasonally, the fridge is stocked with colorful, creative veggie ferments, and other farm creations, such as hot sauces and seasonal favorites like Dulce de Leche. A complete line of herbal teas, salts and salves can be purchased from the farm store as well. Produce and farm products can also be found at the CSA, the, the Hungry Hollow COOP and the Threefold Cafe.
From June through October, vegetables are available to everyone in the larger community at the Produce Stand, open Fridays from noon until 3pm and located in Apple Barn at the Duryea Farm.
Threefold Community Farm continues the Pfeiffer Center’s 25-year tradition of teaching and raising awareness of biodynamics through internships, a One-Year Part-Time Training in Biodynamics, an annual Midwinter Intensive, and workshops.
Programs for children are built around creative opportunities for children to actively engage with the natural world through head, heart, and hands.
