Our Mission and Purpose
Canticle Farm, located in Allegany, NY, is a non-profit community-supported agriculture farm sponsored by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany.
Backed by a dedicated group of local residents, Canticle Farm is able to provide Certified Naturally Grown produce; educate people in the area on sustainability, growing honest food, and cooking; and donate fresh, healthy food to many lower-income community members.
The 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.
This mission statement reflects the love at the core of FSA teachings:
Love of God, love of Creation, love of the Earth, love for all people.
Canticle Farm welcomes all people, no matter their particular background, religious beliefs or community status. At Canticle Farm, PEOPLE ALWAYS COME FIRST. Together, we are able to become stronger and serve one another.
