EECO Farm (East End Community Organic Farm) is a not-for-profit entity that leases and cares for 42 acres of town-owned farmland in East Hampton. We provide community gardens, educational outreach, and access to land for farmers. Crops at EECO Farm are grown using only organic inputs.
There are currently 125 community gardens (20' x 20') available for rent to members of the public. Our gardens offer fantastic soil, deer protection, unobstructed sun, free compost, water, tools and advice from other gardeners. Everyone from experienced master gardeners to beginners enjoy the benefits of an EECO farm garden!
In addition to the community gardens, EECO Farm currently provides land by the acre to seven local farmers, including Share the Harvest Farm, which is a not-for-profit entity that raises fresh produce for donation to local food pantries. Share the Harvest Farm also operates the EECO farm stand, which is open to the public, as a means to generate additional operating revenue for Share the Harvest Farm. During the growing season, the EECO farm stand offers local organic fresh fruits and vegetables for sale.
EECO Farm also provides educational outreach to local schools, which includes one of our farmers helping local students in the various aspects of establishing an edible school garden.
We are an all-volunteer organization, without paid employees. Our volunteer Board of Directors works with our gardeners and farmers to be a fantastic steward of an important agricultural resource in the Town of East Hampton. We welcome all to join us!
