We've redirected you temporarily, as our Rusty Plough Farm website has, sadly, been compromised again.
While we call on some knights (or ladies) in shining armour to help us fix the problem,
we invite you to explore our online marketplace here.

Thank you for your patience.

    Rondout Valley Organics is a collaborative of local farms, managed by Rusty Plough Farm in Ulster Heights, just outside of Ellenville in the foothills of the Catskills. Some of us are certified organic, others have signed onto the Organic Farmers' Pledge, still others practice organic methods without the piece of paper. All of us are passionate about a resilient, active local farm & food economy. You can learn more about each of us on the "Producer Profiles" link. Or contact us to arrange a visit - we're your neighbors!

    Join Rondout Valley Organics with an initial investment of $300.00, which includes an annual $50.00 non-refundable membership fee and $250.00 to start your account. You can click on the "Application" link here and sign on directly, then send your check, made out to Rondout Valley Organics, to 331 DOWE ROAD, ELLENVILLE, NY 12428. If you'd like us to mail you a brochure with an application, just give us a call at 845-647-6911.

    Membership allows you access to a weekly availability list of products from our farms. You choose what you want to order each week. No minimum requirements. Skip a week if you're away. The value of your items is deducted from your account after every order. As your account balance gets low, simply send in a check for any amount to replenish. Since your account dollars are yours until you use them, balances carry forward into the following season. Please note, however, that inactive balances are forfeit after two years.
