Bringing Fresh, Local Produce to Your Kitchen
2019 Season: Wednesdays, June 19th – November 27th
Community and Sustainability are Important.
When the farm has a successful season members benifit from a great selection of fresh produce, and if disaster strikes the farm is protected from financial ruin by the support of its members.
A CSA share also gives members an intimate attachment to their food; they know where it comes from, how it was produced and by whom, and that they are making an investment in their local economy.
What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (or CSA) represents a unique relationship between a farm and the local community of people who eat the food it produces. CSA members choose to support a local farm by purchasing a CSA Share, in exchange the farm provides them with fresh local produce throughout the CSA season.
The CSA shareholders provide the capital needed on the farm to get going in the spring, in exchange the farm returns the bounty of their harvest.
How Does It Work?
Each Wednesday for 24 weeks our partner farm Blooming Hill Farm packages their organic, seasonal produce into boxes and delivers it to our pickup location at Greenwood Lake Yoga. At the pickup location your share of produce is sorted by volunteers into one of your reusable Greenwood Lake CSA grocery bags.
You choose as few as 10 weeks or all 24, and pick up between 1:00pm and 5:30pm, or from 8:00pm-8:30pm.
Bring last week's reusable bag back, and your other bag will be waiting for you.
Why Not Buy at a Grocery Store?
As a CSA Member you get to choose what agricultural practices you want to support by choosing the farm you get your food from. By selling directly to the people who will eat their food, with no middlemen involved, both farmers and customers get a fair price.
Where Does the Money Go
Directly to the farmer! We add just enough to cover bags, administrative costs (phone service, email/website hosting) and credit card fees.
A portion of your membership goes to purchasing reusable bags. Pay cash or check for $1 off/week.
Can I Buy Multiple Shares?
Can I Buy Half Shares?
Stay tuned, right now we aren't planning on half shares, but with enough interest, we may consider opening up that option.
Why not ask around and share with some friends or neighbors?
