Crossroads Farm at Grossman's

At Crossroads Farm, there are 150 active volunteers who dedicate hundred of hours seasonally to the revived three-year-old farm run by the conservation nonprofit Nassau Land Trust. With only five employed staffers on the 4.5 acre farm, director Meaghan Corcoran says the majority of the work needed for a successful growing season falls on volunteers. The farm stand sells seasonal produce grown there -- such as carrots and tomatoes -- but also organic goods such as honey from nearby growers.
