Meadow Rise Farm is 44 acres, located in Knox, NY, in the Helderberg Mountains outside of Albany. Our land is divided equally in space between the woods and the meadows. We believe in the principles of regenerative organic agriculture. In regenerative agriculture, "the idea is to create farm systems that work in harmony with nature to improve quality of life for every creature involved” and the number one priority in regenerative organic agriculture is soil health"
While our small farm is not certified organic, our farm is a member and proud supporter of the work done by the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York, or NOFA-NY. We feed our animals certified organic grains and follow many organic practices.
