Amy's Farm Closure Announcement
AMY’S FARM IS CLOSING
Our family has stewarded this land for 35 years. We opened our gates to share this beautiful farm with the public 25 years ago, offering educational field trips and fresh produce to our visitors. Our hearts are breaking as we share the news that Amy’s Farm must close. The current landowner is selling the property and the future landowner is silent on the matter. We have until August 30 to dismantle, remove, transplant, and find homes for everything that we have built here. We are aware of the extreme loss that our community will feel; we feel it also, immensely. We have hope for the future of Amy’s Farm, but we still do not know what that future will be.
Before you contact us, please read all of the info on our website, especially our FAQ page. We will work hard to return calls and emails during this busy time. We will not be answering questions through Instagram or Facebook; we will only be communicating through our website. Thank you for your help with this.
DONATE AND VOLUNTEER
Our website is also accepting monetary donations because salvage, storage, and moving expenses are costly. It is difficult for us to ask for donations for a farm that is closing, as we do not know what the future of Amy’s Farm will be. But, if you have ever enjoyed this little gem in the past 25 years, we ask that you donate to help us finish well. To donate online, you may use

Additionally, if you have connections or access to people with construction, welding, heavy equipment operators, trailers and dump trailers, and any kind of know-how for the type of tasks involved in moving an entire farm – then please reach out to us. We could really use your expertise!
Although we are closing to the public, our work must continue urgently as there is much to accomplish in the next 60 days, ending on August 30. Please visit our volunteer page to see tangible ways that you can help us. We will continue to update our website with news, tasks, and multiple ways that you, our farm community, can help. We will be accepting volunteers, by appointment only, to come on the farm to help harvest food for donations, help dismantle important equipment, and help to leave the property in “broom clean” condition as the landowner requests.
OUR PRODUCE IS AVAILABLE!
We know that many of you rely on our produce as a part of your healthy diet. We will continue to announce on social media and our website certain days in which we will open our produce stand so that you can shop for all of our summer vegetables including our delicious heirloom tomatoes, stone fruit, and summer squash. We planted all of our crops in anticipation of staying on this land indefinitely, so our veggies are all growing in abundance. Currently, we are offering two days to shop at our produce stand this summer:
Fridays 3 pm - 6 pm
Saturdays 9 am – 1 pm
Also, Amy has planted a satellite garden, off-site, in order to give her farm-to-table restaurant in Claremont, Uno Tre Otto, a seamless supply of seasonal produce. So, when our original 10 acres are officially closed and out of production, you will still be able to enjoy Amy’s Farm Produce at her restaurant.
