(OLD BETHPAGE, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D - Plainview) visited Restoration Farm in Old Bethpage on Friday, Sept. 23. Founded in 2007 by husband-and-wife team Daniel Holmes and Caroline Fanning, the seven-acre organic farm is leased from Nassau County at the Old Bethpage Village Restoration, and fresh vegetables, berries, flowers, and herbs are available to the public through a CSA (community supported agriculture) program and weekly farm stand.“Every time I visit Restoration Farm, I come away with a newfound appreciation for their commitment to sustainable agriculture and this unique farm’s importance as an educational resource in our community,” Legislator Drucker said. “I thank Caroline and Daniel and the staff and volunteers for all of their hard work throughout the year, and I encourage you to plan a visit to Restoration Farm with your family this autumn and experience this truly special place for yourselves.”During the month of October, the farm stand will be open from 2-6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays and 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
