Midsummer Farm has been actively practicing and developing its own style of Artisanal and Sustainable Agriculture for almost 10 years. Certified Organic, Midsummer Farm has always gone above and beyond the USDA organic standards, using biodynamic practices and becoming Certified Naturally Grown in 2008 and Certified Animal Welfare Approved in 2009.Barbara and Mark Laino are the creators and stewards of the farm, located in beautiful Warwick, NY. We relish in creating a self-sustaining and circular farm environment. Farming is practiced and appreciated as an art form. Our farm's main goal is to be both Sustainable and Artisanal.
Our farm works in cooperation with nature—our production is geared toward supporting nature—and the farm's aesthetics compliment those demonstrated by nature.
Everything we produce is grown in an atmosphere of ecological responsibility, healthiness, progressiveness, strong ethical values, and love for life and nature. And everything could not be more fresh when it gets to you – usually our products are harvested the day before or that morning!
We are also dedicated to helping empower our community to eat well and live well. We offer a variety of classes and workshops on all sorts of sustainable and artisanal Farming and Gardening topics. And we offer a wide variety of cooking and healthy eating workshops and demonstrations. Barbara is a certified Holistic Health Counselor - feel free to contact her for a free personal consultation.
We offer a wide variety of cut flowers. Our cut flowers are not the run-of-mill stuff you would see in most regular florists; we find ourselves obsessing on the unusual, the dramatic, and the artistic in flower varieties and arrangements. We sell by the stem, bunch, and in various seasonal arrangements.
We grow over 400 varieties of herbs; masses of the popular culinary herbs like parsley, basil, and cilantro, diverse clumpings of rarer and medicinal herbs for teas and salves, and stands of tall herbs for cut flower arrangements. Our herb garden is a mixture of herbal elements; it is both a colonial dooryard garden and a gourmet culinary garden; Nettles to Motherwort to Shiso to Chives.
Midsummer Farm is currently not open to the Public. We are only open on Events days and during our Plant Sales. Please sign up for our mailing list to be informed of farm events and workshops. We do welcome visitors to the farm, but by appointment only.
