Cross Island Farms shows up for conservation

Cross Island Farms was founded as a sustainable farm in 2005 and since that time farmers Dani Baker and David Belding have never looked back.

In fact, they keep looking forward—finding innovative ways to support local conservation initiatives that connect people to the land, local food, and one another.

The 102-acre farm, located on Wellesley Island, NY, produces certified organic fruits, vegetables, beef, pork and goat meat. Their one-of-a-kind Enchanted Edible Forest consists of over 300 incredible fruits, nuts, berries, and edible flowers. Check them out at

As the lead donor of the Sanctuary’s all-access trail, they walk the walk of connecting food, community, and healthy land. Local businesses like this make all the difference!
