It is our goal to promote food security, fresh food availability, and economic development through Urban Agriculture. With food security on the decline we know it is imperative for the City of Jamestown to grow more food locally, and then make that food available to people in our community by way of local restaurants, food banks, soup kitchens, and farmer’s markets. Our humble property on Allen Street will be re-purposed as a jewel of both agricultural and economic development implementing state of the art growing technologies. Jamestown Urban Farmer’s short and long term plan is to steadily provide job creation and entrepreneurial enthusiasm, backed by training for more and more persons as we grow. Our operation will always benefit public health, protect our environment, and enrich the lives of persons who become involved in our mission. Jamestown Urban Farmer will always take a community minded approach to everything we do. It will be our mission to affect change in the areas of food security, availability, production, and safety by putting people first. The Urban Farm will come to be known for high quality produce and fruit that will be distributed to the community through multiple avenues of distribution. A major part of our mission will include education through formal classes and community events that will be sponsored by and held at the Urban Farm locations throughout the community. Our intent is to be a stimulant for new ways of thinking and innovative methods of economic development through Urban Agribusiness. We will prove to be an excellent platform and resource for other people interested in making Urban Farming their business and their way of life. We believe that Urban Agriculture is literally and essentially going to become the key to a sustainable future for humankind in general, and we will always do our part to make sure that Jamestown, NY and by extension Chautauqua County stays at the forefront of the market and technologies.
