SPACE on Ryder Farm, a Nonprofit Artist Residency and Organic Farm in Brewster, Opens Farm Stand
SPACE on Ryder Farm, a nonprofit artist residency and organic farm in Brewster, will open its roadside farm stand for the 2021 season on July 2. To welcome old customers back and invite new neighbors in, it’s offering all its organic produce at 50 percent off for the holiday weekend, July 2-4. Anyone who makes a purchase that weekend can enter a raffle to win a Harvest Club Flower Subscription, which means 13 weeks of farm-grown bouquets for free.
The farm stand will stay open 24/7 until Thanksgiving. Its customers help support a 226-year-old family farm.
“All items sold are grown from organic seed 300 yards from where you shop,” says Kate Eminger, creative director for SPACE on Ryder Farm. “No packing, no freezing, no shipping. Our organic offerings are priced at a fair market value.” Payment is on the honor system, with cash, check or credit card.
“We don’t want anyone in our community to go hungry,” Eminger says. “If you’re facing food insecurity, give us a call and we’ll be happy to discuss how we can help. And if you see something on the shelf that you need and can’t pay full price for, we trust that you’ll pay what you can.”
The farm stand is stocked seasonally, with produce that’s currently being grown and is therefore at its peak freshness, flavor and nutritional content.
