|TIME AND SPACE ARE VALUABLE THINGS. |
Use them wisely.
That’s how we feel at Hayfields and so does Emily Simoness, Founder and Executive Director at SPACE on Ryder Farm. A friend of Hayfields and our neighbor down the street, Emily has partnered with us for the second year in a row to offer a Seasonal Supper at SPACE on Ryder Farm.
Saturday, July 8th, 7:00 – 10:00pm
The evening will feature a farm tour, cocktail hour and a communal farm-to-table meal on their outdoor lawn alongside artist performances – to be announced soon! Hyper-Local, Town Collaboration: All food gathered, prepared and served will come directly from North Salem using all local, seasonal and farm produced ingredients. Additional ingredients will be provided by North Salem entities such as: Snow Hill Farm, Salinger’s Orchard, Deep Roots Farm, Steve-O! Pickles and Jams, Harvest Moon Orchard, and Three Ponds Farm.

Her program SPACE creates an environment to invigorate artists and innovators with their work, and contributes to the sustainability and preservation of one of the oldest family-run organic farms on the East Coast – Ryder Farm. Ryder Farm is located down the road from Hayfields just on the boarder of North Salem and Brewster, N.Y.
(Although the property has history in dairy, Ryder Farm has been growing organic vegetables, herbs, flowers, and fruit since 1978 and was a pioneer in America’s green movement by being one of the first farms to go organic. Click here to learn more about Ryder Farm.)
In seven seasons and going strong, with the help of an army of inspired supporters, volunteers, friends and family SPACE has hosted over 1,000 residents, holds symposia on creativity and activism, provides childcare for resident artists, integrates the organic farming operation and has nurtured 40 young professionals through its intern program.
Wow. We are inspired and intrigued by what Emily and her team has created for the artist community while also coexisting and helping to maintain Ryder Farm. Not many people even know it exists nearby and for that reason, we are proud to be partnered with SPACE.
