A Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture programme has been organized on 830 acres of land about one hour outside of New York City, USA.

Some of the best farmland in New York, these 830 acres are drained swamplands, black rich earth with ten to 90 per cent organic matter. Five hundred of these 830 acres will be devoted to growing indigenous blueberries. Corn and soybeans will be grown first and gradually substituted for blueberries, which will be mechanically harvested and require minimum maintenance.

The upland area of the farm will be home to a campus of a Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture programme with 1,000 students. The campus will provide a profound influence of harmony for New York City, which is just one hour away, and New York City will provide the ideal market for all the produce from the farm. A community-supported agriculture programme will be established whereby thousands of subscribers will be enlisted, and they will receive weekly parcels of completely fresh food delivered right to their homes in New York City. Visitors are welcomed at the farm to learn about what is being done.
