CHESTER AGRICULTURAL CENTER
CHESTER,
NY 10918

Choy Division was founded in 2019, and started as an urban farm in Astoria, Queens before being moved upstate to the Black Dirt region in Orange County as part of Dig Acres’ incubator program. 

 

We are a half acre diversified vegetable farm, with a focus on growing East Asian heritage crops using regenerative agricultural techniques. This means that our farming decisions are made with soil biodiversity and ecosystem health as a primary factor, not just productivity.

 

Some of the vegetables we grow include gai lan, bok choy, chong gak and daikon radishes, bitter melon, chili peppers, chamoe melon, and kabocha squash.  Follow us on Instagram for updates throughout the season!

 

And lastly, some of you may be wondering where the name comes from (and some of you may have gotten the pun right away!): 

 

Choy (菜) means vegetable in Chinese
