DUMBO / Vinegar Hill CSA
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for people to buy vegetables directly from a local farmer. Before the harvest season, members commit and pre-pay to buy fresh, locally-grown, organic vegetables. This year’s season will run from mid June to mid November 2014. Members will pick up their share in Dumbo every Wednesday evening during the 23-week season.
Registration is closed for the 2014 season, but please sign up for our list, and we’ll keep you posted when signups open again.
We offer full or partial vegetable shares, with fresh, local vegetables provided by Sang Lee Farms on Long Island. A full share will cost $635 for the 23-week season ($27.61/week) and each week, you’ll receive 8-10 different kinds of vegetables. Partial shares cost $425 ($18.48/week) and contain fewer items more appropriate for a single person or household that does less cooking. Please refer to our past delivery lists to see some examples of what a typical delivery looked like last year.
Optional fruit shares are provided by Briermere Farms. Fruit shares run for 18 weeks starting in mid-July, and cost $195 ($10.83/week).
A typical share consists of two containers of berries, or one container of berries and three pounds of fruit, or six pounds of fruit. The berries begin in mid July with blueberries, raspberries, and gooseberries. Peaches—yellow, white, and doughnut—begin in August, along with some early apples. Finally, in September and October a wide variety of apples will be mixed with pears.
Cheese shares consist of 4-6 ounces of cheese each week for 18 weeks and cost $195 ($10.83/week). The cheese is provided by four different artisan cheese providers (Catapano Dairy Farm, Mecox Bay Dairy, Harpersfield Cheese, and Goodale Farms) in rotation.
