CSA Shares

Our version of CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is an arrangement between eaters and farmers whereby the eaters pay up-front for a season's worth of fruits and vegetables. The farmers then deliver weekly “shares” of produce to pick-up sites convenient to you. 

CSA Sign Up Form

Full Share

Each week from June to November you receive a quantity and variety of produce suitable to feed a couple who are enthusiastic cooks, a family with herbivorous children or that could be split between two households. In 2015 we will again include sweet apple cider from Kaneb Orchards, of Massena, NY, in your Autumn shares.

Basic Share

Each week's share, from June to November, is mixed and sized to feed a couple who doesn't eat at home every night or a family with young children. In 2015 we will again include sweet apple cider from Kaneb Orchards of Massena, NY, in your Autumn shares.   A Basic Share costs $375

Hello CSA folks,

Here are three signs that there will be a growing season this year. One, this past Sunday I noticed that the sunshine held a little warmth for the first time in at least three months. Two, I am cleaning the greenhouse in preparation for starting seeds in a few days. Finally, our 78 year old dairy farmer neighbor (who is made of spring steel) leaned over from the seat of his tractor and said to me “I think we're going to make it through”.

The Flower Share

Beginning in June and ending in September, for 12 consecutive weeks, you will receive a bouquet grown and arranged by us each week.  The varieties in each bouquet change as the season progresses. Early season highlights include; dianthus, lilies, ageratum and delphinium. In mid-season you can expect zinnia, tithonia, larkspur, salvia, scabiosa and cosmos.  Later you'll enjoy rudbekia, asters, lisianthus and sunflowers, among others.

Winter Share

The Winter Share will begin in November just before Thanksgiving and ends on March 10th 2016. You will receive a share of produce every other week during this time. At each of the 9 pick-ups you will receive many cold storage staples such as onions, potatoes, carrots and squash in a mix-and-match fashion. Other favorites like broccoli, cauliflower, peppers and sweet corn will come from our freezer. Special items like popcorn, frozen fruit, cherry tomatoes, apple cider and fresh greens from our high tunnel will be offered in specified amounts.
