Chester Ag Center

The Chester Agricultural Center owns over 180 acres in the “black dirt” region of Orange County, New York. Formerly the site of conventional onion farming enterprises, we are offering both consultation and facilitation to help CAC’s investors, staff, farmer lessees, and community co-create the next phase of the center’s regenerative farming mission. Next steps include the full leasing of all land with 30 year lease options, building processing capacity for vegetable growers, developing high quality farmer housing, and helping the Center to achieve its program goals – offering training and land to current farm workers so that they can become farm business owners.
