MAMA FARM ~ Brookhaven, Long Island.
Mama Farm is overseen by executive director, Elettra Wiedemann. It was founded in 2013 by actress Isabella Rossellini. Mama Farm aims to foster the next generation of environmental stewards.

Early Girl Farm
Early Girl was started by Patty Gentry, a former chef, to bring the farmer’s market to the kitchen door. Now busy chefs can enjoy the diversity and flavor of farm fresh vegetables without having to go pick them!
Early Girl CSA
By way of no-till, remineralization, better compost management, better water management, better cultivating practices and further study we will continue to grow the best produce possible!
