Our Vision Corbin Hill Road Farm (CHRF) addresses the needs of low-income communities living in “food deserts” by providing access to fresh produce. Our goal is to develop a sustainable approach that will not just feed these communities but also to help them develop into healthy, economic citizens. We are re-imagining the relationship between communities, farmers, and investors.
Communities are both consumers and investors; eventually CHRF will extend company ownership to the communities we serve. We also want to bridge the “upstate/downstate divide” by engaging the upstate farmers we work with in an ongoing dialogue with our downstate partners. CHRF promotes investment in the sense of both money and capacity development; our activities are not only developing communities in NYC but also opening new markets and opportunities for our upstate farmers. Ultimately CHRF wishes to combat the increase in nutritionally-related medical problems within food deserts by improving access to fresh produce.
