2020 CSA Program

 

Community supported agriculture is a relationship founded on support and commitment between farmer (that's us!) and consumer (hey you!). Each year we offer a limited number of 'shares' for purchase during the winter and early spring, before the season begins. In return, consumers will receive a weekly bounty throughout the growing season. For the farmer, the investment helps with startup costs and planning for the new season. For the member, the farmer is committed to providing a share of the harvest that is hand selected for quality, freshness, and ripeness throughout the growing season. 

What is a csa?
Benefits:

Peace of mind:

Know where your food is coming from, who is growing it, and how. Our Calverton soil has been feeding families for over 100 years. As a 5th generation farm, we take pride in maintaining and preserving the health of our land and community for today, and future generations. We make a strong effort to implement sustainable farming practices, programs, and work closely with Cornell to ensure safety within our farming operation.

Nourish your Health

Enjoy the harvest directly from our fields, to your table! We carefully harvest your vegetables within 24 hours of your pick-up! Produce picked and consumed at its peak ripeness provides full flavor and the most nutritional benefits. Stock your kitchen with fresh produce, diversify your palate, and know that a healthy meal is available right at home!

 

 

 

Growing relationships & support:

Develop a relationship with the farmer who grows your food, connect with the community, and feel good about supporting a family farm and the local economy!
