Keesler Farm was one of the many food production hubs in Rockland County until the late 20th century.

 

This 32-acre farm and substantial tract of surrounding woodland is privately owned, and it is being farmed to prevent the land from being divided or developed.  

The owners of Keesler Farm chose to preserve their farmland when so much of our pastoral landscape was lost to residential and industrial development.  When the cost of keeping that land dormant began to increase, they asked Rockland Farm Alliance to return the property to its role in active agricultural production.  We now produce much of our garlic and wild-harvested produce, such as ramps, on Keesler Farm.
