Mission Statement

‚ÄčThe mission of Canticle Farm, a ministry sponsored by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany (FSA), is to reverence, protect, and honor the sacredness of God’s creation. Canticle Farm, a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm, is committed to connect all peoples, to practice Earth friendly habits and to come to a realization of a Creation centered spirituality.

Description

Canticle Farm, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded in 2001 in Allegany, NY, by the forward-thinking FSA as a ministry to the local community to provide fresh, healthy, locally grown food using sustainable farming methods without the use of synthetic or chemical applications.

Our philosophy is based on FSA’s concept of guidance through a justice-focused purpose using a model of land preservation that produces safe, naturally grown produce for all people.

The Franciscan tradition is fully revealed in Canticle Farm’s symbiotic farming practices, stewardship and respect for land, and loving care for the health of the greater community’s citizens. All practices and operations of the farm are embodied in fulfilling the mission and providing for the food security and health of the area’s families, along with educational opportunities.

We also donate produce to a wide variety of organizations engaged in alleviating food insecurity throughout Cattaraugus and Allegany counties in NY, and McKean County in PA, through our Sponsored Share Program, which is supported by grants and donations from religious groups and societies, local organizations, individuals and friends of the farm.
