On October 27th, we had our third annual Halloween party at the Stockton St Farm. There was a great turnout for the festivities. We had face painting, a scavenger hunt and a piñata full of tasty treats. The neighborhood young people were also entertained by an epic tug of war and cargo bike hay rides from our friends at the Cargo Bike Collective. Here are some photos.
On Friday afternoon a red-tailed hawk decided to have a snack in one of the trees at the farm.
The very next day a parakeet was spotted sitting on a planter box.
Our new farm cat has taken an interest in the fowl attracted to the growing ecosystem. Stay tuned for more thrilling winter adventures!
Please take a look at our Winter 2013 Newsletter. 2012 was a productive year at the farms and we’re really excited to continue expanding our operations in 2013. Happy New Year!

In the frigid weather, Bushwick City Farm volunteers persevere and continue to expand our second lot on Stockton Street. We are very excited to announce that we are building a second chicken coop! This is a positive step for Bushwick City Farm and our animals because we’ll be able to transplant some of the chickens to our new coop. This will improve living conditions for all of our egg-laying friends. With the extra space, we’ll be able to take in more chickens and in turn, give away more free eggs every Sunday. With the construction of our new chicken coop, we’ll continue to feed our community.
