Description of the property’s current condition and current use(s):

We are looking for farmers to become part of the yearly cycle of seeding, growing, harvesting in the Catskills. We promote seed conservation, diverse crops (including ‘native’ and heirloom varieties), fungal propagation, and sharing of harvests and knowledge. In 2020, we initiated the FARM for the FUTURE (F3) program.

Based on the concept of an “allotment” which allocates a plot of land for cultivation, CycleX seeks emergent or established farmers, individuals and/or collectives, to pursue innovative hybrid, permaculture, regenerative, organic small-scale farming.

Given free use of a lot of 1 or 2 or 3 acres, farmers are encouraged to grow unusual and diverse plants/crops/fungi from other countries or cultures. We offer the land as experimental ground to landless farmers especially immigrants, women, veterans, folks of color, and people with limited land access or financial resources who wish to deploy sustainable farming practices.

Selected farmers will be given a 2 to 3 year tenure, with the expectation that they will emerge from the program to apply what they’ve learned and return the allotment to other farmers for ensuing growing cycles.
