Hepworth Farms, established 1818, is a seventh-generation family farm in Milton, NY (about 75 miles north of NYC). After graduating Cornell University in 1982, Amy Hepworth assumed leadership and began the process of dechemicalization, transitioning from standard farming practices to a “whole systems approach.” Today, Hepworth Farms has 250 acres of certified organic production lands yielding more than 400 varieties of organic vegetables (specializing in tomatoes, cukes, eggplants, zukes, and greens). The farm is owned and operated by Amy, her twin sister Gail Hepworth, and Gerry Greco.
“We are extremely passionate about our farming standards and practice a whole-alive-systems approach. We deeply care and are devoted to our workers, land, and energy conservation, and delivering healthy and delicious food to our customers.” -Amy Hepworth
