HOW DOES IT WORK?
CSA is like a subscription, or a vegetable-of-the-week club. You pay in full for your share before the distributions begin in early June, and in return for your commitment to our farm we provide you with just-picked organic produce at a good value, as well as farm trips, news, recipes, and a community of like-minded people to get to know!

FARMY VOLUNTEER FRIDAYS! Strongly suggested for all farm share members (especially those on Long Island!), you will have fun, learn so much, and get to know the faces behind your CSA. Come help us out on the farm, either in the Market working with produce, the Garden Center working with plants, or for the bold and daring, out in the field with the crops.
You only need to come once, but to accommodate everyone’s busy schedules we’ll set aside a time every Friday all season for CSA members and others who wish to get your hands dirty, volunteer Fridays and see the farm “behind the scenes”! Volunteer shifts from 9-12 and 1-5, or stay all day! Volunteers in the field must be over the age of 14 and all minors must be accompanied by an adult. Families are welcome.
FALL Shares are 12 weeks, except flower shares which will be 10 weeks (ends last week of Oct).
- Wednesday Sites pickup: begin Wed Sept 6, ends Wed Nov 15 (week before Thanksgiving)
