Founded in 2016, Pitney Meadows Community Farm’s mission is to celebrate and explore agricultural education, healthy food production and recreation. Located on 166 acres in the heart of the City of Saratoga Springs and preserved in perpetuity as a working farm, PMCF is a unique resource. We are committed to being good stewards of the land and serving the community that invested its tax dollars to preserve the Farm as open space.
PMCF offers a broad array of opportunities to engage with the land and our community. More than 100 plots are available to individuals, families and organizations to grow their own produce in our Community Garden, supported by an on-site Community Garden Director. In our 11-acre agricultural production area, our CSA members can pick their own vegetables, learn about sustainable farming, taste and learn to cook with new varieties of vegetables, and volunteer to support farm production. Our farm store, open to visitors from dawn to dusk seven days a week, offers products from other local farms in addition to our own produce. An accessible trail system circles the farm, open to walkers, runners, bikers, and dogs on leashes. A planned Children’s Garden, adjacent to the Community Garden and Children’s Greenhouse, will create a learning and play environment geared to children and incorporating two small structures in which educational programs and events will be offered to entire community.
The Farm strengthens the local food system through our Farm to School Program, which brings fresh vegetables to the cafeterias of five local schools. In addition, the Farm donates more than 20,000 pounds of produce annually to food pantries and other social service organizations in the region.
Our farm is alive with creativity and dedicated community engagement, offering a productive and joyful place for volunteers, employees and visitors. As we continue to grow and develop new programs, we aim to create community, change lives, and bring people together on one of Saratoga’s most valuable community assets.
