Meet the Farmer: Sam Wildfong

Sam Wildfong of Obercreek

Obercreek Farm is a certified organic farm located in Wappinger Falls, NY and has been in production since 2013. Obercreek grows diversified vegetables for its CSA, wholesale accounts in the Hudson Valley and New York City, farmers markets, and for its onsite farm stand. The farmers grow outside during the season and in four passive solar greenhouses year round. In addition to the vegetable production, Obercreek has a half-acre hop yard and a quarter acre perennial herb garden. When weather turns too cold to grow food in the field, the farm is kept alive by growing specialty baby greens in the solar greenhouses. All vegetables and herbs are Certified Organic. An additional 6 acres will go into production in 2016 making it a total of 14 acres in rotation throughout the main growing season.

Sam Wildfong, along with a group of young farmers, has a passion for hard work that brings health and sustainability to themselves, their community and their soil. Obercreek is dedicated to preserving the natural integrity of its land by nurturing a biologically diverse environment, fostering a place where the community can come together to teach, learn, experience, and celebrate life in the Hudson Valley.
