About

Quail Hill Farm, one of the original Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms in the U.S., is located in Amagansett, New York, on land donated to the Peconic Land Trust 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.

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.
