Past Projects

Whistle Down Farm


Whistle Down Farm is a small vegetable farm using 100% organic growing practices that sells to local farmers markets, retail stores, restaurants, NYC food pantries and operates a CSA. The farm was previously situated on only 3 acres of usable cropland which was not suitable to support the production volumes anticipated in future growing seasons. Whistle Down sought to purchase a 60 acre parcel in Claverack, however the purchase of new land and relocation required a number of investments in new infrastructure and equipment. 


HVADC assessed the needs of the farm and connected them to a management consulting firm where the farm received assistance in business plan development to be used for securing business growth financing. Within one year, Whistle Down Farm had obtained the necessary financing and successfully purchased the new land. The farm was able to transition their crops to the new location and successfully expand their production to meet the growing demand for organic local produce.
