EECO Farm (East End Community Organic Farm) is a not-for-profit entity that leases and cares for 42 acres of town-owned farmland in East Hampton. We provide community gardens, educational outreach, and access to land for farmers. Crops at EECO Farm are grown using only organic inputs.
There are currently 125 community gardens (20′ x 20′) available for rent to members of the public. Our gardens offer fantastic soil, deer protection, unobstructed sun, free compost, water, tools and advice from other gardeners. Everyone from experienced master gardeners to beginners enjoy the benefits of an EECO farm garden!
The EECO Farm Stand is managed by Share the Harvest Farm, with all proceeds benefiting Share the Harvest’s mission to help feed local families in need. The stand is open from May-October and carries fresh vegetables and fruit from local farms, as well as locally produced baked goods, dairy products, meats, sauces and dips, jams and jellies, and much more. For up-to-date information on hours and product line, visit the Share the Harvest website.
EECO Farm also provides educational outreach to local schools, which includes one of our farmers helping local students in the various aspects of establishing an edible school garden.
We are an all-volunteer organization, without paid employees. Our volunteer Board of Directors works with our gardeners and farmers to be a fantastic steward of an important agricultural resource in the Town of East Hampton. We welcome all to join us!
