If you’re new to what a CSA is, let me explain:
A CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. You, the customer, are the community and I supply the agriculture. It’s an agreement between us that you’ll pre-pay for twenty weeks of vegetables and that I will deliver them to a local pickup site, weekly on Thursdays, just a day after I harvest.
This is our second year running a vegetable CSA and we’re truly excited to be back and able to offer you a chance to share in our farms’ productivity. I came to farming over a love of food and a sheer stubborn will that I would grow it myself if that’s what it took to guarantee fresh, organic produce. I grow food that I want to eat, but the fact is that my farm is really productive and I have enough to share with others. I want to know that families are getting produce that is really and truly organic, with organic growing practices and no harmful pesticides nor synthetic fertilizers treating their food. I can’t do this and be a huge farm, so I only aim to grow enough food to feed 200 people. It’s not about exclusivity; it’s about what I can accomplish and still hold true to my values as a farmer with an organic farm with a minimum carbon footprint and a vision of sustainability.
If you’re interested in signing up, here’s what you need to know:
Pickups are Thursdays between 5pm – 7pm in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at:
the Whiskey Annex, N 11th street at Berry
The cost is $600, which gets you a large weekly selection of organic produce and herbs, as well as a weekly email detailing the contents of the box and includes links to some recipes you might like to try. The goal is to always provide you with a minimum of $30 value per box, however often our summertime boxes include produce with a much higher dollar value. *Check out the photos of some sample weeks from last years’ boxes at the bottom of this page for some great visuals!
If you’d like to round out your weekly pick-ups with fresh, pasture-raised eggs or a loaf of freshly baked bread, we can add those items onto your subscription.
Either option will add $120 apiece to your grand total. The first delivery starts June 2 and continues for the next 23 weeks, leaving three natural “skip weeks” built in for summer vacations.
If you’d like to subscribe to our veggie CSA, there’s still time!
What we’ll need from you is to print the 2016 CSA Agreement form and fill it out. Get that here:
Then send it back to us via an email or the US Postal service. We’ll also require at least a 50 % payment immediately to reserve your spot. Remainder funds will be required by the first delivery date unless a pre-arrangement is in place. If you like, we can accept funds electronically via Chase Quickpay, Popmoney, Google Wallet or Venmo. We also accept checks.
