The public is welcome to visit the farm. Please stay on paths; do not walk on growing rows. There is a children’s/picnic area.

As part of the CSA member share.
ounded in 1988 by Genesis Farm and the local community, the Community Supported Garden is one of the oldest Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs in the country. It grew from half an acre to over 125 acres of farmland, and currently has more than three hundred members. For almost three decades, the farm has been working to eliminate inequities, injustices, and ecological devastation resulting from the present economic, political, and social systems by offering an alternative model of sustainable food production.
This biodynamic and sustainable Community-Supported Garden was certified as River-Friendly in March of 2016. Since 1988, the Community Supported Garden at Genesis Farm has allowed community members to get involved in supporting the farm and growing food to feed the community. The objective of this farm is to feed people sustainably grown produce while also giving back to the soil by increasing soil health and fertility.
Genesis Farm is an ecological center founded in 1980 as a project of the Dominican Sisters of Caldwell, New Jersey. Through its educational programs and its commitment to action, Genesis Farm offers diverse and innovative experiences that inspire a comprehensive approach to personal and social change. Genesis Farm is open to all who are interested in exploring this sacred land, our mission, and our work.
Genesis Farm is located in Blairstown, New Jersey on 226 acres of preserved farmland. There are two guest residences, and additional buildings house a library and media area, a resource center, art studio and program offices. We are also the home of the Community Supported Garden at Genesis Farm, which has over 300 members and was founded by Genesis Farm and local community members.
The Community Supported Garden at Genesis Farm is legendary and world-renowned. True to the pure CSA model. One of the first in the country. Our community shares with the farmers the bounty AND the risk of producing our food. Pure, clean, delicious, nutritious food grown with biodynamic principles and lots of love — and without chemicals.
You don’t just join a CSA when you join our farm; you join our family.
