Participating Delaware County Farms
Birdsong Farm Community Garden
38480 State Highway 10, Delhi, NY
Facebook: Birdsong Farm Community Garden
The Birdsong Farm Community Garden is designed to be accessible to gardeners of all ages and experience levels with raised beds and wide gravel pathways. Bio-intensive practices are utilized to grow the most amount of food in the least amount of space. Unlike allotment-style community gardens, participants work together and share in the harvest. Educators and Master Gardeners from Cornell Cooperative Extension oversee the day-to-day operations, and host educational events and work sessions. The garden is family friendly and is a great place for children (and adults)
to get hands-on experience and gain a greater appreciation for food production.

We’ve recently opened a farm store with home-grown beef and goods from our local agricultural businesses. We’re excited to partner with our community and offer these products. We’d love to meet you
