Organic CSA, Tai Chi and Yoga at Zfarms in Dover Plains

Zfarms Organic, a certified organic family farm in the village of Dover Plains, has been keeping busy these days. They are taking orders for community supported agriculture (CSA) shares, hosting free outdoor tai chi classes and renting out their yoga studio space.

In addition to selling at the Pawling farmers market each Saturday, as well as through their website and at their farm stand—available by appointment only—farm manager Zachary Elwood says this year Zfarms has also started taking orders for monthly CSA shares. The farm sells grass-fed beef, lamb, poultry, free-range eggs, vegetables, fruits and berries. Their animals are humanely raised on green pastures, without hormones or antibiotics.

Returning to the farm again this summer, tai chi and martial arts master Christopher Kiely is offering free outdoor Sunset Tai Chi classes, suitable for all levels, every Sunday, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.

“We also have an 850-square-foot yoga studio on the second floor of our farm stand with the view of the fields and farm animals, which is available for yoga or fitness classes as well other events. We offer the rent free for the first season,” says Elwood.
