Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil, and you’re a thousand miles from the corn field.
-Dwight D Eisenhower.
It was a beautiful autumn Sunday at Crossroads Farm in Malverne, NY, where Chrein.com founder Lloyd Chrein volunteered as part of a hard-working crew at the annual Fall Festival, on October 16, 2016. A record crowd enjoyed live music, hayrides, a petting zoo and pumpkin painting – as well as local craft beer, and fresh farm goods in the farm stand. The event raised thousands of dollars for the non-profit farm.
Crossroads is a five-acre certified-organic farm located on Long Island just a few miles from the New York City line. It was owned and operated by the Grossman family for generations, before it was saved from condo development by the Nassau Land Trust. Its land now produces a bounty of organic crops, and it serves as a learning center for local students, and gathering spot for families and residents of all ages.
We are proud to support Crossroads Farm, as well as other causes that help the environment, and protect our health and well-being.
