joethefoodie Posted February 18 Share Posted February 18 The owners of Hepworth Farms, a well-respected organic farm located in the Hudson River Valley, are transitioning some of their acreage, and spending a fair amount of money on processing equipment, so that they can grow and process marijuana. Quote In the organic vegetable world, Hepworth Farms, in Milton, N.Y., is a regional power player, a name brand in everything from lettuces to leeks, and the rare grower that has managed to combine farmer’s market bona fides with serious scale. Hepworth’s produce graces C.S.A. (community-supported agriculture) boxes and is beloved by the discerning members of the Park Slope Food Coop, in Brooklyn. As grass-roots organic growers go, Hepworth is as pure as they get. But the farm also supplies supermarkets and restaurants all across the Northeast; in peak season, its owners said, Hepworth moves 15,000 cases of produce every day.
