Tony Bracco of BRACCO FARMS in Pine
Island NY will explain how to adapt best-practices small-farm gardening techniques to our own home
gardens using organic non-GMO farming disciplines. Tony will share with us tips on “how its done”
at Brocca Farms.
Bracco Farms came into being in 2009, born out of a passion for high-quality fresh vegetables and fruit.
Located just north of the NJ border in the heart of Orange County, this “Black Dirt Region” is a remnant of the Ice Age in which thick deposits of nutrient-rich topsoil (from 30% to 90% organic matter) were left behind by retreating glaciers.
Soil + climate = some of the best produce in the nation.
The mission of this family farm is to provide the Public, restaurants and food markets with the best possible small-batch naturally-grown fresh produce. Brocca Farms has become the organic produce supplier of some of the finest hotels and restaurants in NYC, NJ. and the Denville Meat Shop as well.
