PHOTOS! Crossroads Farm kicks off 2024 growing season

Family fun at the last Nassau County farm


Crossroad’s Farm at Grossman’s is just one of those things that makes Malverne Malverne. People came from all over the county this past Saturday to celebrate the very first day of the growing season at the neighborhood staple.

And this season, Crossroad’s had a little extra to celebrate. The farm — the last one in Nassau County — is anticipating its biggest season yet since the county acquired the property from the Grossman family. The farm expanded an additional 2 acres, and will be using that extra land to further their sustainable farming practices.

On top of that, their new Community Supported Agriculture program will create an even stronger relationship between Crossroad’s Farm and the surrounding neighborhoods to provide access to fresh, organic locally-grown produce. This will build on the farm’s already existing ties to local businesses and the Malverne Chamber of Commerce — for example, they work with local restaurants like Uva Rossa to provide fruits and vegetables, so Malverne neighbors can eat food grown right at home.

The friends and family that came out this weekend enjoyed a petting zoo, plant sale, face painting, and education on native plants. But now that the farm is open for the season, people can visit at any time to get more in touch with their roots.
