The Jamestown Community Farm Incorporated
is a non-profit 501c (3) organization. Our organization was
created 13 years ago in response to an idea that there is
both individual and community value in helping those in need
and that one of the most fundamental needs is good food. Growing
fresh produce and distributing it to those less fortunate
meets a fundamental human need and is also a valued project
defining our Island community.
From the outset our intent was: to grow and produce crops
without the use of commercial fertilizers, pesticides and
herbicides and to pursue a method of sustainable farming that
systematically improves the value of the agricultural soil
even as it produces crops. The Farm is committed to methods
of farming that recognize and minimize the impact on the natural
environment and the native populations of the Island’s
flora, fauna and natural resources, including water.
