Quail Hill Farm, one of the original Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms in the U.S., is a stewardship project of the Peconic Land Trust located in Amagansett, New York, on land donated by Deborah Ann Light.

Since it was established in 1990, Quail Hill Farm has grown to 35 acres serving over 250 families.

The community farm also delivers fresh food to local restaurants and food pantries and participates in the Sag Harbor Farmers Market throughout the season.

A central part of our mission at Quail Hill is to educate the public concerning such issues as soil health, our seed supply, food security, and sustainable, organic farming practices.


Looking for inspiration for summer vegetables? Farm member Jane Weissman collected over the years recipes contributed by Quail Hill Farm members! Interested in adding to this collection? Email us at and we'll pass them onto Jane who is putting together a new edition.

Life on a farm is always in transition. After over three decades of tending the land at Quail Hill Farm, inspiring generations of farmers and families in the love of land and locally grown food, Scott Chaskey retired from the Peconic Land Trust at the close of the year (2019). We’ll miss Scott’s wisdom and generous nature at the farm everyday. It’s hard to put into words how much Scott means to all of us, so we will leave it with a simple THANK YOU SCOTT!

Please take a moment to read two recent notes from Scott: “Welcome Layton to the Role of Director of Quail Hill Farm” and “One More Letter.”

Commitment to the Land

Each year, we sign onto the Farmer’s Pledge of the Northeast Organic Farming Association, New York (NOFA-NY) “to sustain the land in healthy condition for future generations.”

At Quail Hill Farm, we hope to create, in the words of Aldo Leopold, “a state of harmony between man and land.” All are invited to help us to protect, preserve and nourish the good soil of Amagansett.
