Rock Steady Farm & Flowers

“Rock Steady was created with a vision that as farmers, we can - and must - create a new paradigm in a deeply unjust food system and escalating climate crisis.”
– Maggie Cheney

Co-founded by farmers Maggie Cheney and D. Rooney, Rock Steady Farm & Flowers is a LGBTQ+ owned and operated cooperative farm, rooted in social justice, growing sustainable vegetables in Millerton, NY. In addition to their holistic, regenerative farming practices, Rock Steady is working to increase equity in the food system and create safer spaces for queer and BIPOC farmers to thrive. Through their Food Access Fund, they provide free or subsidized vegetables to low-income community members, including seniors, families with young children, and people living with serious health concerns (HIV/AIDS, diabetes and cancer).

“We’re trying to create a space where our team can show up to work as their full selves, and also create a model as a co-op where there is more shared power and leadership. Our values don’t end with who’s getting our food, but they are also rooted in the rights of our workers and the safer space we’re creating here on our farm.”
