Company description Jamesport Farmstead is an organic certified vegetable and fruit farm in Jamesport, NY. This year (2021) marks our second year in production and we cannot wait to continue growing!

While we do have managers for various elements of the farm it is important to us that our interns are exposed to and are able to get a hands on experience.  We are a production farm.  We strive to teach and be transparent with our process, but within the context of running a market driven farm.
